“The book is fast paced, yet packed with insight and personal interludes, tempered by glorious visual fireworks, making this seem like an under publicized big screen gem set to runaway with more box office receipts than the production studio thought it was worth…This is a summer comic at its very best.” - Doug Zawisza of ComicBookResources.com
“Guardians of the Galaxy further proves there's plenty of life in the Marvel Universe out among the stars. With a rip-roaringly good cast, trippy visuals… this series has all but cemented its place in my pull list permanently.” �" Jesse Schedeen of IGN.com
“Guardians of the Galaxy is a space adventure that is fun and engaging, and definitely worth your three bucks.” - Steven M. Bari of ComicsBulletin.com
“Guardians of the Galaxy is, a tremendous, action-packed extravaganza that pulsates with entertainment and style.” - Nick Budd of ComicPants.com
“We've got highfalutin space action, and an anthropomorphic raccoon stealing the show… It also helps that this was one of those damn fun comics that you always love to run across.” - Humphrey Lee of AintItCoolNews.com
“DnA have the chops to pull off big action oriented sci-fi comic goodness like they have done on Annihilation Conquest and the Nova monthly. The art team is fantastic and should provide beautiful imagery for the duration.” - Robert Tocapina of ComicAddiction.com
