Synopsis: The new age of space is here! In the wake of EMPYRE, the political map of the galaxy has been redrawn – which means it’s time for a nice, peaceful diplomatic conference. As the new ambassador for the Utopian Kree, MARVEL BOY made a solemn promise to be on his best behavior…so how come his fellow diplomats are being murdered one by one – and it looks like he’s the killer?

 

The Story

In this new story arc. The Guardians are called in to attend a diplomatic peace conference. Representing the new Utopian Kree is Marvel Boy. Things get off to a light start but it soon becomes clear that peace is not everyone’s agenda. As some of the galaxy’s most powerful races gather. Marvel Boy finds himself in serious trouble and only Richard Rider and his fellow Guardians will stand with him.

 

The Artwork

Artist Marcio Takara has a difficult task in this opening chapter because it is mostly a talking heads issue until the final few pages. Furthermore, the fact that there is very little action makes life pretty tough for the artist. Takara compensates for this lack of action by making the most of the visual gags. Most notably the sight of Marvel Boy dressed like Adam Ant. Though I fear that this reference would probably be lost on younger readers.

 

Overall

This is a pretty good start to a new Guardians of the Galaxy story arc. As a newer reader of this series. I am just about over the loss of Starlord in the earlier issues and enjoying the process of getting to know the newer characters. We get some continuation of the relationship between Phyla-Vel and Moondragon from the last issue, but Marvel Boy is clearly the anchor of this story.

Overall. A promising start to what is likely going to be more of a mystery story. Hopefully, we get a little more action in the next issue.
