Issue Review
   May 17, 2017

A tedious story which amounts to nothing.

The hero is passive throughout. Sucked against his will onto a massive ship he is told a tale of its origins. Soon after, he is told a different version of the same events by someone else. Then, he plays a small part in a large battle and the story ends.

This is such bad writing. Most of it is exposition. Just characters telling each other stuff. No conflict or drama or anything.

  -Not a bad story, but not up to the benchmark established by previous Starlord tales.

  It's worth repeating...Ship is kind of a creeper!

  Ship secretly assumed human form to get with Star-Lord AGAIN?! And neither of them mention the last time... this is not a healthy relationship

Quote of the order so far.

  A light year in size? How would it manoeuvre through any galaxy?

  In Full Brilliant MARVEL COLOR! Sure was, especially the Worm Hole experience.

  I have other questions...

1. Where did they get the materials to build it? The Empire ravaged hundreds of worlds to build the Death Star.

2. How do you get around inside it? You would die before you got half way.

3. What about communication? Even with something like fiber optics, its going to take a long time to travel the length of the ship.

4. It would be mostly an empty ship. Two billion people is no where near enough to fill it up. Even the current population of Earth (7-8 billion) wouldn't fill it.

The was the weakest of the Star Lord stories. I don't think color added anything to the story. I miss the black and white art.

Ship is really creeping me out.
