Guardians of the Galaxy: Tales of the Cosmos Review (Jason Latour, Robbie Thompson)
Guardians of the Galaxy: Tales of the Cosmos collects the backups from the Guardians of Infinity series, all of which suck!
The ever-cliched-catchphrase-spoutin’ Thing wrestles some aliens then shows Groot round Yancy Street (sigh - this guy is such a joke), Venom and Human Torch hang out, Rocket and Kitty fight a Skrull, Gamora and Kitty fight some Chitauri - you get the idea, these are forgettable, disposable stories.
The Space Knights origin (whoever they are) is drawn by the worst artist currently working at Marvel, Gerardo Sandoval, but then none of the art here is especially eye-catching.
Maybe if you’re a fan of the Fantastic Four and suffering withdrawal from that cancelled title you might get something out of the Thing and Human Torch stories, but even Guardians fans won’t find anything worthwhile with this dismal book.
