Bendis and McNiven taking on Guardians of the Galaxy relaunch
October 13, 2012
Bendis and McNiven will take on Guardians of the Galaxy this March (with a zero issue in February). The lineup looks to be about the same as when Abnett and Lanning were working on the book with: Starlord, Gamora, Drax, and Rocket Raccoon. Though this time around Iron Man will be added into the mix somehow.
When the Earth is threatened, you call the Avengers—but when entire universe is at stake, there’s only one team for the job… …they are the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY! Starlord! Groot! Rocket Raccoon! Drax! Gamora! Iron Man?! That’s right folks, the Armored Avenger is joining the Universe’s Mightiest Heroes to tackle the threats too big for the Avengers! But just what threat would require the help of Tony Stark? That’s the question Brian Michael Bendis, , and Steve McNiven plan to answer. What do you get when you combine the man who redefined the Avengers for an entire generation and one of the greatest comic book artists of our time? You get an all-new ongoing series featuring the team starring in Marvel Studios’ next major super hero franchise! With a new mission and a new lineup you’ll only see in comics, the Guardians of the Galaxy head in an exciting new direction with only one goal in mind—SAVE THE UNIVERSE.
