Find out as Dan Abnett and the original Guardians of the Galaxy make their triumphant return to the Marvel fold this October when the senses shattering first issue of GUARDIANS 3000 hits comic shops and digital devices!
See now? The original Guardians, like, from 1969 original. A very different team than the one that was brought together after the Annihilation crossover a few years back, this version of the GotG first cropped up in the ’60s and featured a cast of names that you’re probably familiar with from one corner of the Marvel U or another. They also were of another branch of Marvel’s multiverse in that they hailed from Earth-691 in an alternate timeline.
Last seen in their own standalone book in the early 1990s, this team hasn’t seen the light of day since guest appearing in the modes GotG comic in 2010. Here that are though, ready to ride the wave of Guardians of the Galaxy fervor brought about by the new film.
It seems as though they’re no longer separate, but a part of the modern Marvel U too, just set int he far future. It’s an interesting idea that publishers have played around with before with mixed results. With the interest in Guardians right now though, and the Marvel Universe of the future taking a bigger role in general in the Marvel of today, it just might be the right time for a Guardians 3000 rebirth.
See what happens when the book debuts this October from the team of Dan Abnett and Gerardo Sandoval.
