Marvel Comics is launching a new series featuring the members of Guardians of the Galaxy: all of them. The galactic team-up will feature characters from the original lineup last seen in Guardians 3000, all the way up to the modern makeup.
Guardians of Infinity #1 is set to hit stores in December of this year, and will feature an all-star lineup of talent behind it: Dan Abnett and Jason Latour will be writing the issue, and art will come from Carlo Barberi and Jim Cheung.
Here’s the description for the first issue:
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!
The Thing and Rocket Raccoon trapped on a planet based on professional wrestling? That sounds awesome.
