With the obligatory slugfest out of the way in the last episode, the Guardians of the Galaxy and the Avengers must team up to save their teammates from the bizarre experiments of the High Evolutionary. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “Evolution Rock.”
As we wait for the movie sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy in just a little over a month, the second season of the animated series opens with a special two-parter guest-starring the Avengers, whetting our appetite for Infinity War when the two teams face off against Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Meet me after the jump for my review of “Stayin’ Alive.”
Just as the first season of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy animated series began with a gauntlet of shorts on Disney X-D, so does the second season. Come on, with a movie sequel coming, you knew a second animated season was coming as well, right? Meet me after the jump for my thoughts…
While we wait for their movie sequel later this year, Marvel’s animated Guardians of the Galaxy return to Disney X-D for a very special Christmas episode. Confronted by a miserly despot, the Guardians use a familiar theme to teach him a lesson A Christmas Carol style. Meet me after the festive jump for my thoughts on “Jingle Bell Rock.”
Sure, Marvel had been knocking it out of the park, both critically and monetarily, with their series of interconnected film franchises. I mean… Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Avengers… how could you second-guess the brain trust that was making those kinds of studio decisions?
But Guardians of the Galaxy?
A gun-toting raccoon and a giant walking, somewhat talking, tree? In space?
Admittedly, I thought it would be a hot mess, singlehandedly signaling the demise of the superhero film franchise.
Boy, was I wrong.
Boy, was that an awesome film.
Boy, I can’t wait for the sequel next year!
To tide us over until then, today, Marvel Comics launches two new monthly series’ starring the coolest characters from the Guardians franchise: Gamora #1 and Star-Lord #1.
Peter Quill may have been born on Earth, but he’s been gone a long time. This December, he returns to his original home planet, and he’s not leaving anytime soon! Today, Marvel is pleased to present your first look at Star-Lord #1 – the all-new series from fan-favorite creators Chip Zdarsky (Howard the Duck) and Kris Anka (Uncanny X-Men, Captain Marvel)!

With an episode called “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” I can’t help but wonder how many times Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy animated series has actually fooled us. Seriously this show has had more false endings than Lord of the Rings. I’m not taking bets that this is the last episode, but still, meet me after the jump, for my thoughts on “Won’t Get Fooled Again.”
Finally the Guardians of the Galaxy have found the Cosmic Seed, on Earth, where Thanos found them and took it from them like they were children (I could make a Star-Lord joke here, but I’ll refrain). Now Thanos is using the Seed to make the Earth into his own super-weapon, who can stop him? Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “I Feel the Earth Move.”
For too long in the Guardians of the Galaxy‘s quest for the Cosmic Seed, we have been thinking of it as an object, but it may be more than that. This powerful MacGuffin may also have been affecting our heroes’ actions as well. Check out my review of “I’ve Been Searching So Long” after the jump.
