Dan Abnett To Write A New GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Ongoing Featuring The Original Team
Are you a big Guardians of the Galaxy fan? Are you sitting down? Well I hope you are, because some very exciting news has found its way online. Marvel have announced that the original Guardians of the Galaxy team will be getting their own ongoing series from legendary Guardians scribe Dan Abnett with artist Gerardo Sandoval. Guardians 3000 will be launching this October featuring Major Vance Astro, Starhawk, Martinex, Captain Charlie-27, and Yondu fighting the good fight in the far-flung future of the MU.
According to Newsarama, the series spins out of Abnett‘s back-up story in Guardians of the Galaxy #14, which served as a teaser of what’s to come in the new book. If you missed it, it featured the original team having to deal with the fact that reality is “wearing out” around them. It’s the same sort of timestream problems that have been plaguing a lot of books in the current Marvel line-up. Abnett said of his story, “True to the original tales, they are trying to save the future from the menace of the Badoon. I wanted to keep that element, and indeed try not to do anything to deny any continuity. So they are freedom fighters, first and foremost, facing an immensely hostile culture. However, they soon discover that the Badoon are just the tip of the iceberg, essentially opportunists taking cosmic advantage of a much deeper crisis. As Starhawk deduces, the very future itself is in danger. History and causality are unraveling and repeating themselves, and not in a friendly ‘Groundhog Day’ way.” What do you think about the big news Guardians fans? Are you glad to see Abnett out in the cosmos once again?
