Announced EXXXCLUSIVELY over at ComicBook.com, where former Marvel P.R. guy James Viscardi is the Editor in Chief, Marvel will be releasing a second Guardians of the Galaxy series bringing together the current Guardians of the Galaxy, the Guardians 3000 Guardians of the Galaxy, and a brand new team of Guardians of the Galaxy called the Guardians 1000. Dan Abnett will write, with Carlo Barberi on art, along with Jason Latour and Jim Cheung, just because. Latour and Cheung are apparently just doing a backup story in the first issue about pro wrasslin' starring Rocket Raccoon and Ben Grimm. After the first issue, other creative teams will take Latour and Cheung's place. The series is--

Jim Starlin: Did somebody say Infinity?!

Jude Terror: God damn it, who let Jim Starlin in here again?

Starlin: I just want to let Marvel know, I'm available if they need another writer.

Terror: I think the creative team is already pretty full. Four people.

Starlin: There's always room for Starlin! This is Infinity!

Terror: That's four people they asked before you...

Starlin: Want to know what the problem is here?

Terror: No.

Starlin: They're thinking too small. I don't see Guardians of Infinity as a single series.

Terror: You don't?

Starlin: No, no. That's just wasted potential. I think we can stretch this out for ten, twenty years with sequels and companion books.

Terror: How shocking.

Starlin: Off the top of my head, we can do Guardians of Infinity War, Guardians of Infinity Crusade, and Adam Warlock and the Guardians of Infinity Watch.

Terror: Where have I heard this before?

Starlin: But it doesn't stop there, does it?

Terror: It does. Get our of here, or I'm calling the police.

Starlin *being dragged out the door by security*: But wait! You haven't heard about Guardians of Infinity: Infinity Plus One! Or Guardians of Infinity and the Infinity Infinity! Infini--

 

We really need to start locking the doors. Anyway, here's the solicit for the book, which will hit stores sometime in December or later:

GUARDIANS OF INFINITY #1
Written by DAN ABNETT & JASON LATOUR
Art by CARLO BARBERI & JIM CHEUNG
Cover by JIM CHEUNG
Variant Cover by CARLO BARBERI

IN THE INFINITE EXPANSE OF TIME AND SPACE IS THERE ROOM FOR MORE GUARDIANS? YOU BET THERE IS!

Defending the galaxy is a good gig, but Drax isn't thrilled with the combat hours (not enough of them) and Rocket isn't thrilled with the compensation (not enough of it). They're off on an adventure to supplement both, and Groot is happy to come along. But instead of the perks they want, they're about to get more trouble than they can handle. Good thing the Guardians 3000 are on hand to help! But what about...THE GUARDIANS 1000??!!

Also in this issue, Latour and Cheung tell a one-off story of Ben Grimm and Rocket Raccoon, stuck on a planet where culture is based on Earth-style professional wrestling...but the stakes are life and death! THIS AIN'T KAYFABE, BROTHER!
