Spinning out of the dramatic conclusion of Age of Ultron, dimensions collide and Heaven's most fearsome Angel arrives - and comes straight for the Guardians! Gamora, one of the galaxy's greatest warriors, holds a deadly secret that could bring down the entire team. And when Gamora battles Angela, the entire universe hangs in the balance! Then, the galaxy's most mismatched heroes find themselves at a crossroads when the effects of Infinity begin to rise. Can even the mysterious Angela's power help combat the fallout from Thanos' master plan? And what will it take for Star-Lord to betray the entire Marvel Universe? The biggest blockbuster hit of the year continues as critically acclaimed artists Sara Pichelli and Francesco Francavilla climb aboard...and comics legend Neil Gaiman joins the team in this one-of-a-kind comic book event!

About the Author

Award-winning comic-book creator Brian Michael Bendis is one of the most successful writers working in mainstream comics today. He has helmed a renaissance for Marvel's popular Avengers franchise, writing every issue of New Avengers and launching Avengers, Mighty Avengers and Dark Avengers. He has also written the event projects House of M, Secret War, Secret Invasion and Siege. Bendis is one of the architects of Marvel's Ultimate line of comics, having written every issue of Ultimate Spider-Man since its launch in 1999, as well as Ultimate Fantastic Four, Ultimate X-Men, Ultimate Marvel Team-Up, Ultimate Origin, Ultimate Six and the Ultimate Enemy trilogy. The introduction of multiracial Ultimate Spider-Man Miles Morales made USA Today's front page and went on to become a hotbed topic on Fox News, CNN, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Howard Stern Show and more. Bendis' creator-owned projects include Scarlet with Alex Maleev, Brilliant with Mark Bagley, the Eisner Award-winning Powers with Mike Oeming and the Hollywood tell-all Fortune and Glory. Bendis is also the creator of Image Comics' Jinx line of crime comics, which has spawned the graphic novels Goldfish, Fire, Jinx and Torso with Marc Andreyko, and Total Sell Out. Sony and FX have completed principal photography on the pilot for Powers with Bendis as executive producer, and he's adapting Fire for Universal Pictures as a starring vehicle for Zac Efron.

E I Talamante, December 28, 2014 (view all comments by E I Talamante)
The addition of new characters, old favorites, and some I haven't seen in a long time flavor this second collected edition of the favorite Guardians and their ongoing war against Thanos in the attempt to protect Peter's home planet - Earth. Angela, an angel, is ripped through a tear in space and time, and left confused on this side of the Galaxy. The Watcher intercedes, and Quill consults Thanos in an attempt to find out exactly what is going on. I point out, this is a more adult comic than recommended, and some of the jokes require some knowledge of 80's pop culture to "get". Fortunately, I have first hand information! Iron Man and Gamora attempt a questionable relationship, and Rocket has a wonderful way with words, making this more humorous than the first collection, as well as a bit more mature. Reader be warned.
