I got sidetracked from my reading a little, but, so far, the book is more detailed, as you'd expect. Plus, there are some changes and additions in the movie, presumably for wider appeal (if so, I disapprove), but some of it is only speculation, since I haven't read the whole book yet.
I'm really looking forward to getting near the end. That whole concept really took my breath away. I'm sure you can guess what part. I definitely would not spoil that for anyone. What a moment. I might have shed a tear. Can't remember now, but I'll make note when I reach there in the reading. That and the initial premise were two things that really struck me as inspired.
I don't think you have to be in a rush to watch the Blu. I'm guessing it will be more of an exercise in seeing where they differ. Not that it's terrible, but I was both let down and inspired upon finding out it was based on a Grant Morrison book (author credit over artist, hehe); let down because I was so initially hyped about the cleverness of the movie, but inspired to realize I had a new (old) book I really wanted to read.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Movie Images Feature Benicio Del Toro as The Collector and Karen Gillan as Nebula | Collider
14 Things We Learned From The Guardians Of The Galaxy Trailer
What have we learned???? Well let me sum it up for you. That this is just straight up gonna be a lot of fun. And that James Gunn(who, unfairly, is fighting claims of sell-out from his twitter fans) has finally given me back what I have wanted all along...a comic book movie...that LOOKS LIKE A ****ING COMIC BOOK.
Still a lot to see here basically with no real showing of Lee Pace's Ronan, Rooker's Yondu, the Nova corps in action(you see Reilly/Serifinowicz...but C'MON!!! We wanna see the helmets!!!!) and...GLENN CLOSE! I am glad they basically made this a longform version of the footage they showed at SDCC 2013. That was a little tighter and they used Hooked on a Feeling to better effect, but thats minor quibbling. So...those of you who were pessimistic, 'a tree? A violent gun-toting raccoon????', how ya feeling about this now?

Ok, so after looking at the link in this post:

-Don't really mind the change in Drax's origin, though I wonder if they're going to try and work in the "Created solely to destroy Thanos" thing. Maybe Thanos is responsibe for his family's death? I also wonder if Gamora's history with Thanos (as his adopted daughter) will make it in somehow.
-****ing Nebula looks way more awesome and badass than she did in the comics.
The gripes about cybernetics are minor, and super-nerdy, and it's not really going to bother me that much, I'm sure. I'm just glad the movie still looks like a ****ing blast.
Going to take a look at those other links now..
