Next month, the Guardians of the Galaxy enter uncharted depths of space in a new comic series from writers Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing, the superstar duo behind Steve Rogers’ bold ongoing adventures in Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty, and drawn by artist Kev Walker, known for his recent acclaimed otherworldly artwork on Predator.
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #1 introduces an overwhelming new cosmic threat to the Marvel Universe, one that emerged from the very heart of the team: GROOTFALL.
This mysterious phenomenon will push Marvel’s beloved team of intergalactic super superheroes to the Manifold Territories: an uncharted, lawless area of Marvel space filled with never-before-visited planets and undiscovered alien species.
The Guardians have been brought been to their lowest depths, and their found family fractured like never before. Now, trying to outrun their tragedy, the Guardians rise as the Folds’ only chance at salvation.
Can they rediscover their heroism and humanity on the bleakest frontier? Can they forgive the failures of their past? Or will they fade into the dark, eternally unforgiven?
In a recent interview, Jackson Lanzing said about the upcoming series:
“These characters have been psychedelic superheroes, lovable smugglers, and cosmic warfighters who are living under constant chaos. This was a chance to take them somewhere completely different. So, the Western became a way for us to say that the tone of this book is going to be different from the Guardians books that you’re familiar with, and it allows us to get a little crazier.”
In the same interview, Kelly added:
“I think fans can also get excited about the structure of our run,” “Initially, we’re popping off five individual issues. This is the story of every week coming to a new town and discovering the trauma, drama, and pain, then engaging with that and not necessarily resolving it in the best of ways, but stepping into it in their own way and then coming out the other side.”
In the new trailer, fans can see the lineup of the new run in action, including Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Nebula, and Mantis. They can also glimpse the devastating effects of GROOTFALL and witness the true, galaxy-bending might of what the Guardians are up against…featuring never-before-seen artwork!
