Note #1: The events depicted in this miniseries took place “260 lunar cycles ago” but the lack of any present-day sequences means that the entire story should not be treated as a flashback.

Note #2: Character watches for the rest of this miniseries (issues #2-5) have already been done by Jason Doty.

Opinion: I have mixed feelings about this miniseries. On the one hand, the story itself is fairly good and would be an interesting addition to Gamora’s admittedly-sparse backstory. On the other hand, the idea that Gamora and Nebula were raised together as sisters by Thanos is something from the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s continuity and NOT from the Marvel Comics Universe continuity. So, unless someone produces a retcon story which reveals that Nebula from Reality-616 had actually been raised by Thanos but the memories of all involved were somehow erased, I’m going to consider this miniseries to be non-canon.
