Guardians of the Galaxy #6 Recap/Review – Galaxy’s Most Wanted starts now!


Guardians of the Galaxy #6 Comic Book Recap

Peter Quill and Kitty Pryde have sneaked into a Badoon prison planet.  The two lovers are able to stay hidden from the aliens, but Peter is discouraged by recent events.  He has lost an entire planet and all of his friends, nearly losing Kitty as well.  The former X-Man is annoyed at this, as they could have talked about this many times before now, when they weren’t in the middle of a great deal of danger, but Star-Lord is having trouble moving on.

So Kitty sits with him and tries to get him out of his bad mood, asking what he thinks of her new outfit.  Quill doesn’t want to answer this, saying it is a trap and he will get in trouble no matter what he says, but she goads him and he admits it is just awful.  Kitty is an amazing woman – a teacher, scholar, and warrior.  She is making the galaxy a better place.  But she cannot dress herself to save her life.  Pryde is hurt at this, and tries to argue Peter doesn’t dress much better, but Quill brushes this off, saying he looks great, and Kitty sadly admits that even though she’s been a super hero since she was 13, she can’t put an outfit together, and it is maddening.

But there’s no time for this.  Peter may have made mistakes, but not everything is his fault.  And right now, they have to get out of here.  It’s time to get back to basics.  His basics.  A space-pirate galactic guardian that answers to nobody but his own conscience.  They make their way through a series of guards before they come across one massive Badoon warrior and too many guards to fight off.  Peter wants to run… <CRACK> that doesn’t work out.

Star-Lord later wakes up dazed but safe, as Kitty was able to use her powers to eke out an escape.  They are still being pursued by the guards, however, they are able to slip through a hole in the prison’s massive walls.  On the other side of a crevice, they see the rest of the prison… <SFX; MUSIC>

Looking around, Kitty goes quiet for a moment, before asking for one of Peter’s guns.  Quill is worried at the change in his girlfriend’s demeanor, and asks what she is planning.  She replies she going to shut this all down.  Peter thinks that is crazy.  She can’t do this alone, and besides, this is a prison planet.  They knew this when they came here.  Kitty corrects him though.  She recognizes what this place really is.  This is a concentration camp.

She tells Peter to go find what they came here for.  She’ll provide a distraction.  <LASER BLAST; EXPLOSION>  One of the Badoon’s vehicles <PEW> strikes out at Kitty.  Too bad they can’t hit her. <BOOM>  Impressed, Quill takes off.  While Kitty begins an onslaught against the Badoon forces, Quill tells the prisoners to flee to the airfield and escape.  The aliens are grateful, and Peter asks where they can find the high-risk political prisoners.  Suddenly, the Badoon warrior knocks him down. <PUNCH>  Kitty sees this but is too far away to help.

Though dazed, Peter sees he is approached by a group of monstrous aliens, and hears a voice.  “Peter Quill, we find you guilty for crimes against the Badoon.  You are now sentenced to death.”

Guardians of the Galaxy #6 Comic Book Review

Hello and welcome to Comic Island!  My name is Arden, and this is my recap, and review, of Guardians of the Galaxy #6!

So I hope everybody is doing well!  Today, I’m starting new coverage of Guardians as I’ve been wanting to talk about these guys for some time.  I’ve been a huge fan of this team for years ever since their first big run with Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning.  After the movie made the Guardians household names, I had been keeping an eye on the series, looking for a decent jumping on point that coincided with my production schedule.

And it’s finally happened.  So I’m pretty excited to be doing this.  The Guardians are a fun team and I’m looking forward to seeing where this story goes.  For those not up to date , Brian Micheal Bendis has been writing for Guardians ever since Marvel Point One following Avengers vs. X-Men, and he’s been doing some interesting stuff.  The Guardians have been experiencing a revolving roster of sorts, with the core members we all know paired with characters like Iron Man, Angela, and Captain Marvel, all of whom have since left the team.  Recently, their roster now includes the likes of Kitty Pryde, Agent Venom, and the Thing.

It should be fun to talk about these characters and I hope you are all as excited as I am.  Now this issue didn’t offer a lot on it’s own, as most of Guardians of the Galaxy #6 covers an extended conversation between Kitty Pryde and Star-Lord.  But that’s okay, because it served well to get us acquainted with the current story and get used to the current state of affairs.  I also think that Valerio Schiti did a really good job with the artwork.  He nicely conveyed the action in this story but I think his real strength comes from facial expressions.  These added a lot of context to the characters’ moods and mannerisms while also doing well to convey moments of drama.  I really felt Kitty’s guttural reaction to the prison camp and it was really cool to see her attack the entire facility with a great deal of success.

In the end, yeah, this was a pretty awesome comic.  I recommend you check out this issue for yourself, and don’t forget to like, subscribe, and keep reading comics
