3.5 Stars. Not sure where "Mother Entropy" fits in the continuity, but as a self-contained story, it is pretty good.
"Mother Entropy" is a galactic entity that is apparently responsible for remaking the entire galaxy in her image. The Guardians run afoul of her as the are trying to escort a priest for the cops on Knowhere. Pip the Troll (of Infinity Watch fame) gets involved and they are all tested to see who will become the next "Mother". Chaos, body switching, and a triumphant "Groot saves the

This is a decent mini-series, and fun if you like the guardians, as Starlin handles all the characters well, and the art's solid. However, it's a toss off, a stand alone, and it while it tells a short, fun story with the characters, it doesn't actually do anything or change anything. I'm increasingly frustrated with storytelling of that type in comics, it's made limited series less fun over the years.

However, that's like complaining about a short story for it not being a novel...this is exactly

When Thanos and Warlock talk like this, it feels grand. When the Guardians of the Galaxy talk like this, it feels stilted.

These guys aren't imperial; they're personable and rough.

Also, the story works better as an anthology than as a coherent whole. The resolution of the problem seems wholly unbelievable. It seems like the point is just some of the weirder stuff at the beginning.

Feels like a classic 80s bronze age romp.

Straight up fun! It's Jim Starlin and Alan Davis, what else do you need to know?

A terceira oferta da coleção Marvel especial da Goody traz-nos um grupo que, de personagens secundárias em comics mais obscuros da editora, se tornaram muito populares graças à sua inclusão no universo cinematográfico. Os filmes dos Guardiões da Galáxia foram sucessos tremendos, talvez dos mais interessantes e divertidos desta nova vida dos super-heróis nas telas de cinema.

Se quiserem ler space opera weird em comics, procurem algo escrito por Jim Starlin. Em Mãe Entropia, os intrépidos mas fali

Dos grandes autores a medio gas y horas bajas... Ni siquiera las líneas del siempre preciosista Davis salvan este despropósito. Incluso en ese aspecto adopta -por ingerencias editoriales, no me cabe duda- esa molesta costumbre de asemejar los rostros de los protagonistas a los de sus coetáneos en las películas.
Sin duda, Starlin se lleva el Premio a la historia más típica, llena de clichés y pretenciosa que he leído en mucho tiempo; de esas que en su desarrollo afecta literalmente a todo el univ

Some fun banter, but the story feels awfully thin stretched over five chapters. I think I'm a little spoiled by the two Guardians movies, which excelled at weaving several layers of characterization around a fast-moving action story. That development is missing here.

The Alan Davis art is a big plus, though, and his lively characters bring bring back fond memories of his run on Excalibur.

This was pretty awful from start to finish. I think Starlin is suffering from Claremontism now. He keeps going back to the characters he’s most associated with, but he has nothing new to say (and he’s kind of boorish and mean-spirited to boot). Alan Davis’ art was nice, but not nice enough to save this trainwreck.

Everyone's out of character and drawn off-model. Half the time Drax talks like Bizarro. A really disappointing mini-series by two classic Marvel talents.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Kosmische Albträume ist der Hammer! Mal im Ernst, was ist das bitte für ein genialer Comic. Ich bin ein riesiger Fan der Guardians und mich hat bereits der Klappentext und auch das Cover sehr angesprochen. Dementsprechend waren meine Erwartungen auch sehr hoch. Dass diese erfüllt werden, habe ich gehofft, dass sie jedoch auch übertroffen werden, habe ich so nicht erwartet. Doch genau das war der Fall! Alan Davis zauberte einen wundervollen und farbenfrohren Zeichenstil a ...more

I adored this short GotG run helmed by my man, Jim Starlin. It's just a quick adventure, but well worth the read.
