The Guardians of the Galaxy title is set to hit next month with #1 and it felt strange that Marvel would bring us a #0.1 (daft numbering again it seems) but this sets things up with an origin tale with a difference.

With a great opening start in those first 3-issues (reviewed here) we see Dan Slott continue to mess with Spidey’s life, head AND relationships…….and I’m loving it

With Age of Ultron set to kick-off next week I thought I’d take a look back at the first issue Marvel released for this as part of Free Comic Book Day in May 2012.

While the AvsX event may have not impressed everyone it certainly lead us through to the Marvel Now creative team reshuffle which has been a much more consistently impressive affair and with someone like Brian Michael Bendis heading up two of the X-books, there’s a world of potential & possibilities at his disposal.

The first two issues wowed me (#1 & #2) in this 8 part series and having passed the halfway mark I’m still engrossed in a story that seems to have harnessed a feel of familiarity and the unknown in equal measure with mystery abound surrounding the last words of Matt Murdock aka Daredevil has been the catalyst for an investigation by The Daily Bugle’s own Ben Urich.

Hopefully now that the dust has settled from the events of those last few issues of Amazing Spider-Man in 2012 – we can settle into the new world where Spider-Man is a very different title to read and relate to
(I’ll say Spoiler alert but if you don’t know what’s happened up to this point then you’ve probably been living in a cave or never seen a comic book in your life)

I was on the fence on whether to pick up this title when I saw it advertised – where I enjoyed the Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe 4-parter that was all but blown away with a fairly so-so vibe I got from the Marvel Now on-going release…..that being said with Cullen Bunn involved I thought I’d give it a go.

After one of the strongest Marvel Now openings covering the three ages of Thor – this second issue eases us into the young Thor trying to gain his worth as a god.

With Matt Fraction’s Fantastic Four opener laying out their plans for a “vacation” it’s pretty apparent that his FF title will tie-directly into that with the added bonus of the trip being tackled from another perspective.

This is it, the much-hyped, must-have title from Marvel Now and having already enjoyed my fair share of the releases so far – I was keen to see if this could match the hype it’s been adorned with.
