Cosmic Marvel fans rejoice! Today was a day with two expected but nonetheless awesome announcements, as two flagship titles of the post-Annihilation intergalactic side of the House of Ideas (see out article on Nova here) got a relaunch courtesy of Marvel NOW!
Guardians of the Galaxy will indeed be returning to you local comic shop. Sporting new outfits with the team set to be featured in the forthcoming movie, with one noticeable addition… Iron Man!
Here’s what IGN had to say about it:
Long rumored and confirmed at Marvel’s Cup O’ Joe panel at NYCC, Brian Michael Bendis and Steve McNiven are launching a new Guardians of the Galaxy ongoing series in March following a #0.1 issue in February.
The team they shared consisted of Starlord, Groot, Rocket Raccoon, Drax, Gamora, and… Iron Man? The hook of the series appears to be why exactly the Guardians need the help of Tony Stark.
So there you have it guys, now be honest are you as excited as I am? Personally I absolutely loved the epicness of the cosmic books pre and post Annihilation, and I’ll candidly admit the quality did take a dip as it went along but I’m thoroughly jazzed about this. But what are your thoughts?
