So we got Galacta Daughter of Galactus. Roll your eyes all
you like, but your missing out.

Many might forget this was part of the Assistant Editors special anthology,
which was a contest for the fan to pick. So if you think this was just some
cheap ploy to get girl Galasctus in the Marvel U, Think again, because the Fans
wanted this. And for the moment, just don’t think about the obvious question,
such as who’s the mom, they explain it all. 

So we have Galacta, the conscious devourer with daddy issue. She try very hard
to not be like her daddy, by eating anything that doesn’t belong to the earth.
But she finds herself in a deadly Catch 22, when she finds a Cosmic Tape Worm
is feeding off her. Now caught between her growing hunger and her ethics on
eating, she tries all she can think of to find a way to remove the tape worm.
This is a funny book, from both the plot and Galacta’s narration.
I would say one of the best panels of this issue was the panel in which she
thinks about taking Logan‘s
healing factor and placing it into a Living Plant, much like Ego, to have an
endless food source. Seeing Ego with Mutton Chops and wild hair is worth
it 4 bucks alone.
Plus, you get a lot out of this book, the first 8 pages being the pages from
the Assistant Editors comic, 22 pages of new story, and oddly enough 7 pages of
Galacta’s tweets. The Tweets was an odd touch, but informative on her
character, from her thoughts about body image to what alien taste better.

I found the art enjoyable, despite how many of you rolled your eyes to the idea
of manga/anime art in a Western Comic. However, not sure if it was just my
copy, but a few pages seem a little blurry, that or the inking was just off.

All in all, I found this to be a good book.
