Guardians of the Galaxy #8

   It's good to see the Guardians of the Galaxy (the comic) acting like the Guardians of the Galaxy (the movie).

   Now that we're past the silly "Star-Lord rules a world" story, we've moved into proper territory - a mission to rescue a planet of slaves.

   The last couple of issues (each adorned by a terrific Art Adams cover) has featured a different segment of the team involved in a mysterious mission - and this issue (focusing on Venom and Groot) clears up some of the mystery, as their goal comes into focus.

   So it's a fun, adventurous romp as the team tries to find a way to outsmart the enemy and pull off an impossible mission - and I have to admit that I enjoy the classic "Justice-League-let's-split-up-into-teams" approach.

   So, a great story by Brian Michael Bendis, excellent art by Valerio Schiti, a fun story about an impossible task, all building to a big finish - what's not to like?

Grade: A-
