Guardians Of The Galaxy Relaunches With New #1 In January
by James Ferguson
As announced at Marvel’s Next Big Thing panel at New York Comic Con, Guardians of the Galaxy (which is currently only on issue #9 of its current run) will be relaunched in January 2020 with writer Al Ewing and artist Juann Cabal. The team is put at the center of a new intergalactic war, facing the latest threats to the galaxy, including the reborn Dark Gods of Olympus.
Writer Al Ewing says:
Guardians of the Galaxy is a high-octane spy-fi action-adventure set against an evolving backdrop of interstellar politics, intrigue and suspense. War is coming – and if the Guardians can’t stop it, they’re going to be right in the middle…
I’m a big fan of the current Guardians of the Galaxy series, as well as Ewing’s work on Immortal Hulk, so I’m a little torn about this. Cabal’s style, as seen in Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man is a perfect fit for Guardians of the Galaxy so I can’t wait to see what he brings to the title. This news seems to diminish the rest of the current run. I mean, the arc going on right now has to do with the death of Rocket and he’s right there on the cover for the new book.
Guardians of the Galaxy #1 is set for release in January 2020.
