"Somethin' good......something' bad, little bit 'o both"
-Star Lord (Guardians of the Galaxy)
You better be ready because here they come. The Guardians of the Galaxy from Marvel.
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY PRELUDE:
Prepare for Marvel Studios' newest big-screen blockbuster with these new stories taking place just before the film! Who is Nebula? What tragic events forged her unbreakable allegiance to her dark lord? And how does Korath the Pursuer fit in? Then, as Gamora begins her quest for the Orb, learn firsthand why she's considered the most dangerous woman in the universe! Plus: Relive the Guardians' solo debuts as Gamora and Star-Lord burst onto the scene, Drax and Iron Man take on Thanos, Rocket Raccoon meets the Hulk - and Groot attempts to enslave Earth!
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: MOST WANTED #1
Rocket Raccoon and Groot-your favorite cosmic bounty hunters (and soon to be world-famous movie stars)-leap into action in an all-new adventure! Could it possibly happen? Is Groot attempting to arrest...his best bud Rocket?
LEGENDARY STAR LORD:
From the pages of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY!
A brand new series from SAM HUMPHRIES and PACO MEDINA! In this exciting first issue, Peter Quill battles the Badoon, fights to save an orphanage, and still finds time for some flirting with Kitty Pryde--but it's all in a day's work for the STAR-LORD!
ROCKET RACCOON #1
ALL-NEW, IN-CONTINUITY SERIES!
As defenders of the cosmos go, Rocket Raccoon has faced his fair share of galactic battles. He's been a hero to the weak, a champion of good, a protector of the innocent, a heartthrob to the many intergalactic female species and now--a raccoon on the run?! ( I'm sorry, I'm sorry, a "formidable-and-expert-Guardian" on the run. Rocket is NOT a raccoon, okay?) Rocket's high-flying life of adventure and heroism may soon be a thing of the past when he becomes a wanted man-and the authorities are not the only one on his TAIL! (We'll definitely be overusing that pun!)
Superstar creator Skottie Young brings his A-game as writer and artist on the series we've been waiting decades for. Because let's be real, this is the only Guardian of the Galaxy you actually care about. Am I right?
