In the universe of Secret Wars, there is only Battleworld. But, there is another thing that God-doom also created which is a floating celestial head which is revolving around the planet to serve as a reminder that Doom will always keep his people safe. But, on this head lies a number of alien species that call this place home. This home is called Knowhere and it is where this story lies. It is on this planet(moon) that the remaining Guardians of the Galaxy call home, along with a number of other species that inhabit the remaining pocket of the universe.

Written by Brian Michael Bendis and drawn by Mike Deodato(of "Original Sin" fame),this comic had the potential to be another of the surefire hits of "Secret Wars". We had the chance to being a number of alien creatures together and watch them wreck havoc on whatever is left of the universe. Plus, we also got a chance to see Rocket Raccoon in his original costume. So, what could possibly go wrong? Well, a decent amount. The art is incredible, especially in the fight scene between Angela and Drax, but that takes up a large majority of the issue and prevent any plot from developing. Deodato has a chance to showcase his abilities by having a number of aliens in each panel, and the few chances he gets to draw Knowhere showcase just how talented he is. But, Bendis as always finds a way to make the story more confusing that it needs to be. Sure, we have the Guardians and a giant fight, but nothing else. We don't learn enough about the actual storyline to keep us glued to our seats and waiting for next month. All in all, if you need your Guardians fix, then read this issue. But, The story is interesting, but just not enough of it, the issue is mostly fight. I give this comic a 6 out of 10.
