Guardians Of The Galaxy Annual #1 (2021) Review
Summary: A fun introduction to this series, reminds me of the spirit of the movies and there is not any confusing backstory to work out at this point.
Dumb but fun
This series is a retelling of the Guardians of the Galaxy timeline but with different characters and events. In this one we learn the origin story of the Prince of Power and how a chance encounter with what he thought was a jelly bean but was actually an Infinity Stone turned into a supreme being. It did not help with him being smart however so he is now without a planet.
I enjoyed the send up for He-man in this and it seems to fit in the with James Gunn version of Guardians of the Galaxy so the rest of this series should be quite fun.
A lot of interesting artwork and fun character designs. Rapskullion stands in for Skeletor and Muscla is Eternia. There are lots of fights and action in this one and also a bonus story about Nick Fury going out on his own after SHEILD is shut down.
I would recommend this one if you are already a fan of the series or are just starting this one new as you will not have to know everything that went before.
