I decided to read the first 3 knowing very little, save that they have a movie coming up and I should be prepared. So, They ended up in my list. Go me! Though I would have been completely lost without that point-1 issue, seriously. It did do a good job of making sure the new-to-the-characters person could pick up and join in. It’s a good thing.

I’m not sure I’d pick up physical books on this series, yet, but so far I’ve reasonably liked it as the first hints of villainy emerge. Only time with the characters will tell if my love for Rocket Raccoon will transition into a real relationship with the series. I do think the book has potential, but the story has been slow so far. Tony Stark in space is randomly, but that might be because I’m out of the loop as far as what’s up with the greater Marvel Universe. Hopefully they’ll address it (and P.E.P.P.E.R. instead of J.A.R.V.I.S.) in the future. Or I’ll end up reading something that tells me what’s what.
