Award-winning comic-book creator Brian Michael Bendis is one of the most successful writers working in mainstream comics today. He has helmed a renaissance for Marvel's popular Avengers franchise, writing every issue of New Avengers and launching Avengers, Mighty Avengers and Dark Avengers. He has also written the event projects House of M, Secret War, Secret Invasion and Siege. Bendis is one of the architects of Marvel's Ultimate line of comics, having written every issue of Ultimate Spider-Man since its launch in 1999, as well as Ultimate Fantastic Four, Ultimate X-Men, Ultimate Marvel Team-Up, Ultimate Origin, Ultimate Six and the Ultimate Enemy trilogy. The introduction of multiracial Ultimate Spider-Man Miles Morales made USA Today's front page and went on to become a hotbed topic on Fox News, CNN, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Howard Stern Show and more. Bendis' creator-owned projects include Scarlet with Alex Maleev, Brilliant with Mark Bagley, the Eisner Award-winning Powers with Mike Oeming and the Hollywood tell-all Fortune and Glory.

Angela is a shot in the arm the GOTG needed after the opening volume; and her Arrival upsets the Watcher, Uatu. "She cannot be here." She's from Heven, and all she knows of Earth are childhood stories - much like Earth knows of Heaven. Peter Quill was close to one of the ruptures when the event that brought Angela from her universe occurred; an event Tony Stark knows something about. And Thanos says will doom the Earth. Just another apocalypse!
After Angela is introduced, the second half of the book is connected to the Infinity crossover, but isn't bogged down by it. Quill intercepts a distress call from Abigail Brand from the SWORD orbital station. The GOTG head to Earth to discover Thanos is trying to take it over! When their rescue mission goes awry, Angela arrives to assist and facilitate the Avengers arrival. That battle takes place "off screen" as part of the event. A lot happens in this volume but it avoids being a confusing mess by focusing on the characters. The volume closes with Angela and Gamora freeing slaves from the Badoon and Angela learning that the Badoon may know something of her people.
Overall, Angela is sure to be a lot fun for the Marvel Universe, especially in light of what is coming in the crossover Original Sin. I can't wait to see what happens! Highly recommended.
A few points:
(1) Sara Pichelli's art is very good
(2) The plot is quite loose....lots of things happen just to happen and don't make much sense
(3) Angela, the heroine of the story, has little personality
(4) Too many fights that happen for no reason
(5) Bendis's strength is dialogue. Too many of his characters are offering up sarcastic quips - maybe this is the state of 2014 America, but I'd rather have some of these characters uttering deeper and more substantial thoughts
(6) Rocket Racoon has been moved to the backburner, and when he does talk, it is quite fluffy
*addendum - Tony Stark in space does not work (I realized this while on the treadmill today). He has inferior technology compared to most of the other races that the Guardians come into contact with. He wouldn't be able to zoom around and defeat soldiers with better tech and huge spaceships for more advanced civilizations. It is similar to a 15th century soldier taking out a 21st century soldier today. It's silly.
Some of the stories are hit or miss, but good overall. Pretty funny throughout. Worth a read.
I really enjoyed the first Vol. of Brian Michael Bendis' Guardians of the Galaxy, and was looking forward to seeing how they introduced Angela into this universe. Needless to say, the first issue or so of this Vol. is the best and it quickly goes downhill.
I'm going to take a wild guess and assume the constant change in artists had something to do with the whole cohesion of this Vol. We go from having Iron Man as a new member of the group, to having him completely absent from proceedings later on under different artists. Where did he go? I don't want to have to read so many additional titles just to keep track of characters.
It seems working with 3-4 different artists over the span of 5 issues might have adversely affected Bendis' continuity.
Here's hoping the story gains its footing back with a regular artist for Bendis to work with so future Vol. don't suffer from the same fate.
