FIRST LOOK: Marvel puts the Raccoon in charge in Guardians of the Galaxy #1

September 17th, 2015 by Marc Comments


This October, blast off into the stratosphere as the recharged group of galactic guardians explode into the All-New, All-Different Marvel Universe in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #1! Coming to you from legendary comic writer Brian Michael Bendis (Invincible Iron Man) and rising star artist Valerio Schiti (New Avengers) comes a team unlike any you’ve seen before!

Eight months have passed since the end of Secret Wars, and Peter Quill didn’t waste any time abandoning the Guardians and taking the throne as ruler of Spartax. And Rocket didn’t waste any time taking his place as leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy either!

Leading a team comprised of Kitty Pryde (now known as Star-Lady), Drax, Groot, Venom and newcomer Ben Grimm, the everlovin’ blue-eyed Thing – Rocket and the Guardians are out to show that even though Secret Wars may be over, the galaxy still needs guarding.

Strap in and hold on this October for their bombastic new debut in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #1!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
