After months of desperately fighting against the tide, I’m almost completely caught up on my single issue read pile. That means it’s the perfect time for new comics! Let’s look at my buys, recommendations and curiosities from the week of comics, led by a relaunch 364 days in the making!

Book of the Week: Guardians of the Galaxy #1

I led this off with a slight dig, as it really is the second Guardians of the Galaxy #1 in 364 days.
