Collects Guardians of the Galaxy (2023) #1-5. A Guardians story like no other! One year ago, the Guardians of the Galaxy were torn apart - their optimistic future shattered by the betrayal of one of their own. Now they ride the space lanes of a lawless corner of the galaxy, trying to outrun their tragedy. Can they forgive the failures of their past? Or will they fade into the dark, eternally unforgiven? Caught in the middle of a civil war, those who were once Guardians face a battle that was lost from the start. Because they're about to find themselves face-to-face with their old ally Groot - and he's not the friend they remember! Where Groot goes, Rocket won't be far behind - but he's not happy to see the Guardians! Where has he been all this time? What's happened to him? And can the team ever recover?
