A slew of new adventures awaits Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Groot and Rocket as Marvel launches a new Guardians of the Galaxy series.
My Take: No one should be shocked to hear that Marvel has announced a new Guardians of the Galaxy with the movie release being so close. The twice monthly release schedule will definitely get the book ample exposure but as always is the case with any Guardians series if the writing and stories aren't good then character popularity will mean nothing. Guess we'll see what happens when the book hit shelves.
Check out some of the covers plus a sneak peek at the first issue below.
