Guardians of the Galaxy #7

   Of all the issues of Guardians of the Galaxy I've read since the film premiered, this issue is the one I've enjoyed the most.

   That's because it gets to the heart of the series - our heroes rescuing those in need of saving, cracking jokes and smacking heads along the way.

   It doesn't hurt that this issue focuses on the Thing and Rocket Raccoon - a great comedy team if ever there was one.

   Their mission is to free a planet of slaves, so expect lots of clobbering and shooting - and perhaps even some romance (although it may just be classified as consensual space sex).

   I love the cover by Art Adams, which evokes John Carter of Mars, and the interior art by Valerio Schiti is terrific, with expressive characters and over-the-top action sequences.

   As always, writer Brian Michael Bendis puts the focus on the humor and the dialogue - and turns in a real gem.

   My only complaint is that there's still no Fantastic Four comic. COME ON, MARVEL!
