Comic Review: Guardians of the Galaxy #5

Guardians of the Galaxy #5 Angela cover Marvel

Every once in a while, you read a comic that has you grinning ear to ear from cover to cover.

Guardians of the Galaxy #5 is one of those comics.

Brian Michael Bendis is hilarious. Sara Pichelli has some knockout art pages.

And then there’s Angela.

With a Herculean effort, Bendis writes his way out of the awkward space-time continuum explanation behind Angela’s appearance without looking silly.

Artist Sara Pichelli is a big part of that achievement. Her first page – a double spread of Angela busting into the Marvel universe – is simply stunning.

Coming soon to a poster sale near you.

Angela shows up in one hell of a bad mood, and it becomes apparent pretty quickly that Gamora will have some competition for the title “most dangerous woman in the universe.”

Back on the Guardians ship, Bendis proves Iron Man is more than an afterthought in this series. Bendis writes a fantastic and hilarious conversation between Tony and Rocket Raccoon that touches on human evolution, James T. Kirk and green-skinned babes (one in particular).

Elsewhere, Star-Lord runs into another green girl in Mantis, before paying a visit to an old Guardians staple.

Guardians of the Galaxy #5 is wild fun and only getting better.
