Marvel has officially confirmed that a new ongoing series featuring the Guardians of the Galaxy will begin in February from Brian Michael Bendis and Steve McNiven (Steve Wacker will handle the editing). With the movie on the way, this news is as equally un-shocking as it is awesome.
The Guardians of the Galaxy team in this book – Star-Lord, Groot, Rocket Racoon, Drax and Gamora- will be the same we see in the movie, with the addition of Iron Man. Judging by current chatter surrounding the project, the roster won’t be the only way it links to the film.
Things kick off with Guardians of the Galaxy #0.1 in February. Provided there is no additional decimal trickery, Guardians of the Galaxy #1 will follow in March.
