When you’re Peter Quill, life isn’t exactly easy.
Today, Marvel is pleased to present your first look at LEGENDARY STAR-LORD #3 – the next issue in the hit new series from the fan-favorite creative team of Sam Humphries & Paco Medina! On the run across the cosmos – Peter Quill has landed in the clutches of the Badoon! Not really a great showing for the legendary space outlaw. Not to mention sharing a cell with a Spartax criminal and a Badoon child are not his idea of a good time. Luckily Peter’s got an ace up his sleeve – and her name is Kitty Pryde! But how? She’s on Earth! Wait and see, True Believer! Plus – who is the mysterious crime boss known as Mr. Knife and what does he want with the Legendary Star-Lord? Strap in and blast off for another out of this world issue when LEGENDARY STAR-LORD #3 hits comic shops and digital devices this September!
Though the movie has cooled off a little, the Guardians of the Galaxy are still hotter than hot and drawing all kinds of new fans to a team that was all but dead before their rebirth last year. Right at the center of that of course is Peter Quill, otherwise known as Star-Lord.
It’s no surprise either that the character would start to see some interesting crossovers from other Marvel heroes as the GotG’s section of the Marvel U starts to get all that much bigger. Shadowcat might seem like a strange person to cross into Quill’s territory, but she’s right on target with the general weirdness that the property exudes. Kitty is an X-Men too, and one with outer-space experience, so she kind of fits in an odd way.
It’ll be interesting to see where Humphries and Medina take Star-Lord down the line as the Guardians draw more attention from their involvement in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. A role that’s bound to only get bigger as Phase II continues into Phase III. For now though, you can catch the team’s leader in The Legendary Star-Lord #3, which’ll be hitting the racks on September 3rd.
