Gamora Review

    I truly loved this story. I feel like part of the summary of the entire volume says to consider this to be an origin story. In the event I am wrong, please, consider this as an origin story. It provides information on Gamora's back story on her race, it explains why she is such a talented assassin, and it provides us a really interesting take on her relationship with Nebula. In fact, it makes it appear like the both act like nothing more than teenagers living under their father's roof. I really I truly loved this story.

In fact, it makes it appear like the both act like nothing more than teenagers living under their father's roof. I really do not have any complaints with this story. I feel the art is absolutely beautiful, the characters are all personable and interesting, and the lessons Gamora learns really help make sense of why she is soon willing to become a hero and oppose Thanos as based on her depiction in the Marvel movie universe.Considering how the characters were in the volume, I feel Thanos' relationship and interactions with Nebula were really troubling. He basically calls her a piece of shit that will never be likely or lucky enough to rival her sister, Gamora. Nebula's depiction in the second Guardians of the Galaxy movie play off well as she is shown in this volume as she is countlessly trying to find ways to kill Gamora. It seemed funny and insane just how focused Nebula was in the film. I also found it very interesting how Gamora herself was depicted. She is observed to constantly be a in a depressed and introspective mood while curled up in the fetal position on her air ship. Her inner thoughts really helped show her change in heart. She learned quick what seemed to be the right thing to do even though her intentions were to assassinate a character that was truly good of heart. The character of T'wit was charming and the art made her seem so beautiful. As of the writing of this review, I am unaware if the comic series will continue beyond this arc but I feel it has great promise. If not, this was a strong and solid origin story which I feel is definitely a good read for any fans of the Guardians of the Galaxy.

    i appreciate the redemption storyline but this was filled to the brim with predicable tropes.
