Guardians of the Galaxy #18

   I'm all for cliffhangers, but some go a bit too far.

  For example, at the end of the mini-series The Thanos Imperative, three characters were facing death, trapped in an alternate reality: Thanos, Star-Lord and the original Nova.

   In the years since, we've seen Thanos and Star-Lord reappear, but there's no sign of Richard Ryder. And no explanation.

   So what happened?

   We're finally looking back at those events in the latest issue of Guardians of the Galaxy.

   (Apparently Gamora also got tired of waiting for an explanation).

    As you'd expect from writer Brian Michael Bendis, the answer isn't a short one - which is to say, it's a continued story.

   But at least we're finally getting an explanation, so I'm all for it. And a month or two seems much more manageable than "never."

Grade: A-
