The Rundown: Hela and the Black Order are in the process of resurrecting Thanos and every Guardian needs to assemble to stop them.
Peter needs to rally everyone to help them stop Hela before they can use Eros to download Thanos’ consciousness back into his repaired body. Everyone is going to include Gamora as well as they use Lockjaw to take them into the heart of Knowhere. Getting the rare break, the Guardians manage to surprise the Black Order and both forces fight.
With Peter and a small group making their way to Thanos, Gamora tells him that she has to finish it. Peter argues his point and Gamora must decide if killing Thanos for the second time is the right move or will it make things worse.
The Story: Donny Cates writes a satisfying conclusion for this arc. All of the elements that have made this series so interesting and fun to read are there and the characters continue to shine. Given the seriousness of the situation, Cates still manages to inject some effective humor into the story and creates a climax that will keep readers intrigued about where the story and the characters will go next.
The Art: Geoff Shaw’s art is amazing throughout this issue. Everything from the pace of the panels to the impressive character designs works to enhance and elevate an already interesting and fun story to another level.
