The Guardians try to carry a book by themselves... 10 Oct 2009
By Jim Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
...with mixed success.

This 190 page, 7"x10-1/2" hardcover, reprints the 10 issue tryout the Guardians had in Marvel Presents #3-12. Hitherto, the Guardians had been riding the coattails of the more established Marvel heroes, particularly the Defenders. Those stories were reproduced in the previous volume "Earth Shall Overcome".

There are two major story arcs. The first is an interesting, although confusing story that pits the Guardians against the star spanning Topographical Man. Along the way they pick up the (last surviving, of course) Mercurian, Nikki. The second arc delves into the origins of Starhawk. This story, although satisfying, leaves more than a few things unexplained. Separating the two are a reprint with framing sequence of the Silver Surfer's battle against the Badoon in the 20th century.

The stories are appropriately "cosmic" as was very popular in the '70s. Al Milgrom's art is adequate but is not nearly as clean and attractive as John Buscema's in the aforementioned Surfer reprint. The Gerber and Stern scripts are passable. One annoying thing is the characterization of Vance Astro as a dangerously violent hothead. This just doesn't seem to work.

The reproduction seems all right but not up to Masterwork standards.

All in all, for the aficionado of '70s Marvel only. There is a reason these characters never got off the C list.

Excellent, excellent stuff.... 7 Feb 2011
By silly narwhal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Ok, I'm a little partial ~ I first bought some of these as a kid, and they blew my mind. So there's sentimental value. That said....

Re-reading this saga ~ in its entirety for the first time ~ this waaay stands up. The art and writing are both outstanding. This, and the Perez Avengers, and Deathlok, and the original all-new X-men define '70's comics for me.

If you've never read these, you're unaware of a stupendous run....great chemistry among the characters, colorful and dynamic art (borderline psychedelic), dense, cerebral writing (as Gerber was wont to do).... This is the kind of stuff that made '70's Marvel great, and my favorite era ever. I give this my highest rating.

And Nikki is absolutely adorable. Jan, Jean, and Wanda have serious competition here ; )

Lot's of 70s fun 12 Nov 2010
By David Keith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I loved this collection. It's better than the first one, "Earth Shall Overcome" and makes me wish Marvel had given this series more of a chance. Great art and plots. Just about perfect 70s Super-Hero group fun. Highly recommend both books.

For Guardians lovers 14 Sep 2009
By Jason in Hollywood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love reading the old origins of comic heroes I've come across over the years. This is no exception, but sometimes these older stories can be a 'harder' read, but enjoyable noetheless
