Infinity Countdown #3 Review: Sax the Destroyer, or the Draxophone

Richard Rider gives Peter Quill pertinent information which allows him to wield the Power Stone, and his first instinct is to toss it in Drax’s sax.The comic tries to make this meaningful—I think—but it’s still just so goofy and tonally dissonant.That’s before we even get to the (spoiler) fact that it’s implied this could all[...]
