Peter Quill might have been born on Earth, but he’s been away a long time. And now that the Guardians of the Galaxy have gone and gotten themselves stranded on terra firma, how does a man go from soaring through the stars as the legendary Star-Lord to living with his feet planted firmly on the ground? What kind of job options are available for a guy whose résumé mostly consists of “guarding the galaxy”? And with all the dangers he has faced and survived, could anything prepare him for…community service?! Maybe Daredevil can help out with that. Or, would you believe, the Shocker? One thing is certain: Earth has a new guardian. Also, a new bartender. Peter Quill — the legendary Bar-Lord!Collecting: STAR-LORD #1-6 and Annual.

And runs into Black Cat, a retired supervillain, a crotchety old man (who is also a retired supervillain), Daredevil, Howard The Duck (because Zdarsky), and even an opportunity to learn a lesson or two. It's Zdarsky at his finest, even if it's a shame it's only six issues long (and an annual, if Marvel choose to collect it, but the annual's got nothing to do with the main story so it's neither here nor there).Who do you call if you want your main character to look super-hot, all your supporting characters to look super-hot, and even Howard The Duck to-no, that's furry territory, let's get away from that. Anyway - Kris Anka! Beautifully rendered characters, well-framed action sequences, and gorgeous colours by Matt Wilson. A+ art team, would eyeball again.While Marvel relaunches Rocket Raccoon over and over again, Star-Lord is the Guardians solo book you should have read.more
- July 9, 2017Megan LucyIt's a shame that this series got cancelled so early. The story is good, but you can tell they were building to something really great and affecting. On the artistic side, anyone who is interested in drawing men in a style that is very appealing to people interested in men should take note of this book. Star-Lord is super hot.more
- July 9, 2017BillVery entertaining side-story of Peter Quill stuck on Earth and trying to stay out of trouble. But trouble and a load of super friends and villains find him. Maybe he's learned something. At least it all adds up to some fun for the reader.
- May 13, 2017ChristyOne of the best creative teams putting out a story full of feels and mostly nude Star-Lord. No complaints here.
- June 15, 2017EricReally kickass and funny series. Appearances by a couple of Marvel's most awesome heroes really puts the cherry on top of the awesome here.
- July 26, 2017Daniel ButcherI found myself surprised how much I liked this space bartender.It was also very interesting to see how Peter really is not connected to Earth and Earth culture because he is a spaceman!
- April 19, 2017RamonSweet, funny tale of Peter Quill stuck on Earth, meeting people, getting into scraps.
- July 4, 2017JasonA light read for a 4th picnic/cook-out. As always, Zdarsky provides wonderful jokes, zany plots and heartfelt moments. The art was stunning. Highly recommend
- July 8, 2017Anne Armacost4.5 stars..Up until this, I only knew Zdarsky as an illustrator because of Sex Criminals. I enjoyed issues 1-6. The annual was ok, I felt like it wasn't the best, but that's just me.
- April 25, 2017Milan JovanovicBrilliant illustrations that do plenty of *key* fan service, coupled with smart writing gives Star-Lord a welcome freshness and emotional reality. Seriously, his chest and muscles are a sight for sore eyes, and he's practically naked in each issue and it's honestly the best thing ever. Also the ending made me feel difficult stuff so it's really good, too. Short and sweet, it's worth your time.more
- June 23, 2017DominicaLoved the cast of characters in this. Such a fun story, and some very amusing lines, especially in issue #6.
