The invasion of Earth forces Abigail Brand to reach out to Peter Quill and the Guardians of the Galaxy to help retake S.W.O.R.D.‘s orbiting installation known as The Peak which has fallen into the hands of the enemy. With Gamora still sulking over Star-Lord’s chit-chat with her father, and the rest of his team lacking anything approaching stealth, Quill and Rocket Raccoon set out on an one-man/one-space-raccoon-thing rescue operation.

Repackaging $3 worth of nearly 30 year-old comics for $8 takes some balls, but as the comic stars Rocket Raccoon and was drawn by Mike Mignola I’m willing to overlook the hefty price-tag for Rocket Raccoon: Tales from Half-World which collects all four of the original issues of the 1985 Rocket Racoon mini-series.

Following their escape from the Spartax forces, the Guardians of the Galaxy celebrate in an alien bar, Tony Stark makes a move on Gamora (and gets insulted again by Rocket Raccoon), and when more Spartax soldiers show up looking for them they get into a bar-clearing brawl.

After being arrested for stopping a Badoon warship from attacking Earth at the end of the last issue, the Guardians of the Galaxy and Iron Man are put into status awaiting trial. Thankfully for them, the group has one member of the team not accounted for.

Surviving his first flight as Nova, Sam Alexander returns from the moon after getting a warning of impending danger from The Watcher to get chewed out by his mother for staying out to late and find Rocket Racoon and Gamora waiting for him. Needing Sam’s help, and keeping their promise to his father, Rocket and Gamora begin to train the new Nova and prepare him for what is to come (namely the fleet of Chitauri warships on their way to destroy the Earth).

The new adventures of Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Gamora, Groot, and Drax begins with Peter Quill receiving a surprise visit from his estranged father and a warning that Earth has been deemed off-limits to all extra-terrestrials. Realizing such a bold pronouncement would only paint a bullseye on his homeworld, the Guardians of the Galaxy head into the Milky Way where they find Iron Man, in his spiffy new space armor, fighting off an entire battleship of Badoon.

Comic Rack – Nova #1

Writer Jeph Loeb and artist Ed McGuinness give us a solid (although at times somewhat confusing) first issue as Marvel NOW! sets out to relaunch Nova with a new hero under the helmet. Part of the problem with Nova #1 is that it has to introduce not one Nova, but two. Had the Loeb been able to fit Sam Alexander‘s story into the already existing Nova history (rather than show us that his drunken father was once a member of the Nova Corps so forgettable he had never appeared in any issue in the Marvel Universe until now).
