Another Guardian Of The Globe...In Case There's Zomibes Around

"Makes no logical sense" is right but who cares?

This is getting pretty crazy yet pretty funny at the same time. Image has been sharing glimpses at the Guardians of the Globe. Something we'll see more of in August. So far, we've seen Invincible declare he was a member, as well as Spawn (because Todd McFarlane lost a bet). Today's reveal might not make any sense but it's a great idea...just in case these Guardians have to face any...zombies.

We have to assume there's a bit of joking around here. But just imagine if this were all legit. How rad would it be to see Invincible, Spawn and Rick Grimes (in black-and-white of course) running around the same comic?
Who will be next? Place your bets.

As funny as these ads are, I was really excited for a real Guardians of the Globe book.  Looks more and more like just a joke now.

I havn't read any Image comics in a while but these ads make me want to catch up on what I've missed. They;re hilarious.

haha image is great for doing this. if they are all in a comic book, it would be so damn hilarious if rick was in black in white, while everyone else is in color. they'll make the whole black and white thing a running joke.

This made me laugh.

I would love to see them take the joke so far that they print an issue 1. And whoever said Rick in black and white, that's a hilarious idea.

don't get what?
that it's in black and white? (the comic he's from is in b & w)
or that it's nonsensical for him to be on an Image superteam (since he's part of an Image comic that's seperate from the main universe) and yet profitable (since the comic is a big-seller)

@aztek the lost:  I don't get this whole thing ... Is the zombie guy, like, a joke? or is he going to be part of an actual team? .. and if so, why a zombie? -_-
Posted by Asymmetrical
@AngelFrost: he lives in a zombie world, he's not a zombie himself...but as you can tell from the posts, people are really starting to doubt there will actually be a book at all, it seems it's just about the humor factor, though I'd gladly read a book it seems unlikely
Posted by AngelFrost
@aztek the lost:   Oh right, so this is kind of making fun at the previous advertisements? - in a way?
Posted by Asymmetrical
@AngelFrost: that's the idea
Posted by AngelFrost
@aztek the lost:  Okay (: thanks for clearing that up.  xxx
