No.
>>
Just bendis run.
>>
Here we go again...
>>
>>77714672
Yes. All volumes. All have their own thing to offer. Some are big cosmic stories, others are focused more on the characters. Faggots here insist on pushing console wars between two volumes but just ignore them.

I'd also recomend you to stop when you finish Thanos Imperative
it's a nice closing for that era of cosmic Marvel
>>
>>77715550
That's the first trade in Vol 2.

Everyone needs to be aware of his greatest atrocitiy

First >>77715077
When you finish that, you can start with Bendis run. It's easier to follow until the Black Vortex where you will have to read some X-Men as well.
>>
>>77716629

Why do you fucks keep suggesting Hacknis Guardians? its best to just pretend they dont exist at all.

Guardians and Cosmic Marvel died with the Cancerverse and thats that.
>>
>>77717152
To trick someone into wasting their time reading absolute garbage.
>>
>>77714672
There's an omnibus coming out next year for GoTG that collects GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY (2008) #1-25; THANOS IMPERATIVE: IGNITION #1, #1-6 and DEVASTATION #1; and material from ANNIHILATORS #1-4 and ANNIHILATORS: EARTHFALL #1-4.
>>
>>77717152
I'm not gonna play your childish games kid. If you want to be an autist go ahead, pretend they don't exist. The reality is that all stories are there and new people have to read them.
>>
>>77717460

There are literally years worth of amazing stories to read from the original runs in the 60s to the original Drax and Gamora stories combined with the masterpiece that is DnA Guardians (which is like at least 5 years of content all things considered). There is no reason why someone who has never read these comics before has to read these shitty Hacknis books especially when the only relation they share to the original comics, the good comics are the characters have the same name. Everything from their designs to their assbackwards constant crossovers with only bendis written books makes them a shallow reflection of how good they used to be.

Im trying to spare him.
>>
>>77717460
Why the hell would you try and direct someone towards crap when some many quality stories exist from previous years?

You some kind of asshole?
>>
>>77717717
>Im trying to spare him.
More like you are trying to make him read just what you want him to read.

Afraid he might like the new books?
>>
>>77717717

I'm OP. Are you talking about Bendis? I liked Ultimate Spiderman.
>>
>>77717826
Yeah, he's talking about Bendis. The writer.
>>
>>77717802
It's a new, evolved form of bait.
>>
>>77717826

Bendis used to be good. Like 10 years ago.

His Guardians is absolute and utter wank. They do nothing and every "arc" is padded out forever without them every accomplishing anything. The only time the characters ever do anything is when they end up teaming up with bendis's shitty O5 X-men or the like. Hell im not totally unconvinced that the real reason Agent Venom got canceled was because bendis told marvel that he wanted to use Agent Venom in space and they just canceled the book and gave it to him (only to be over a year later and Flash has literally done nothing). Then you have the great disrespect towards anything not written by him. The new costumes are so awful that for once making the characters look like they did in the popular movie was actually a good idea since the new original designs were like aborted power ranger designs.

If you never read a guardians book you might like it because it caters to the audience who has never read a book before, the bottom rung of a ladder audience who knows no better.
>>
>>77717900

A writer who is named Bendis?
>>
>>77717991
>the bottom rung of a ladder audience who knows no better.
and is this elitism why those people don't bother to try the old stuff
>>
>>77714672
>and it was okay
Why would you even want to look up the comic of a movie you only considered "okay"?
>>
>>77718344

Because I've read some Marvel before and I find Rocket adorable.
>>
>>77717809
I don't think anyone has to be afraid of that.
Humphries and Bendis do a good job at making everyone hate their writing.
>>
>>77718477
A good job at getting a lot of fans as well.
>>
>>77718519

Alright Bendis we get it you appeal to people who have no clue who these characters are besides from the movie.

Its alright though we know you cant stand anyone elses writing besides your own.
