Fan-Favorite Writer Returns for Series Starring the Original Team!

Because YOU demanded it! This October, blast off into the far unknown and the future of the Marvel Universe forGUARDIANS 3000 – an explosive new series starring the original Guardians of the Galaxy! From the mind of critically acclaimed writer and iconic Guardians of the Galaxy scribe Dan Abnett and fan-favorite artist Gerardo Sandoval comes a high-octane new series starring the team that started it all!

Perfect for new and old readers alike, GUARDIANS 3000 is set to reintroduce the original team to the Marvel Universe in a big way! With a new mission, Vance Astro, Yondu, Starhawk, Martinex and Charlie-27 are back and better than ever. Follow this cast of bombastic freedom fighters as they battle to gain control of the galaxy back from the hostile alien armies of the Badoon!

“Guardians 3000 is truly a case of you asked for it, we delivered!,” says Marvel Executive Editor Mike Marts. “Readers have been begging for the return of the original Guardians team for a long time…and we’re happy to debut this series right in the midst of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy movie excitement!”

But the Brotherhood of the Badoon are just the tip of the iceberg. The Marvel Universe of the 31st Century is a hostile and unforgiving place – with both new & classic foes from throughout Marvel history. A new threat has emerged disrupting the timestream in the past and the present, and it’s up to the original Guardians of the Galaxy to prevent the collapse of all reality! But to save the future, one must look to the past – and the discovery of a mysterious young girl named Geena Drake could hold the key to saving all reality…or destroying it!

What does the future hold? When the dust clears, will there still be a future worth fighting for? Find out as Dan Abnett and the original Guardians of the Galaxy make their triumphant return to the Marvel fold this October when the senses shattering first issue of GUARDIANS 3000 hits comic shops and digital devices!

They're milking the hell out of GOTG. I liked it better when they were Z listers.

This is a different incarnation of the team.

But they are promoting the main team for obvious reasons (hint: movie coming out. The smart move that every company would do is promote said team)

If Guardians of the Galaxy wasn't coming out in Cinema there would not be like... 4 GOTG titles at the moment.

ARe you people seriously bitching about this when UNDERPROMOTION has plagued this team for years and has been the death of many great books? Finally the Guardians are getting some recognition and all people do is complain.

@the_stegman agreed, ha.

Never read solo Dan Abnett, might be good.

I demanded nothing - but would love to see someone else take on Guardians besides Bendis.

I DON'T like how they gave Star-Lord those horrible costumes in his run. Marvel/Bendis ruined Moon Knight and Guardians for me...

@jonny_anonymous: Comic fans complain. Especially for things that one should be enthusiastic about.

I've seen people complain about Jonathon Hickman's run and how Original Sin "rips off" of Identity Crisis,with the only link being a mindwipe. When people say stupid things,I ignore them and their opinion.

Although I'm not saying that about anyone here,but people will always complain. Ever read Newsarama comments? Or any other forum comments on the web?

@twix_right_side: @granitesoldier: Man it literally baffles me. The main complaint about the entire DnA Guardians of the Galaxy/Nova/Annihilation era and the main reason it ended was because Marvel refused to promote it. And now that they have rebuild the Cosmic line and gave the Guardians a few variants and everybody is crying.

@twix_right_side: Or, you know, they have different/better taste than you.

So it's a ripoff of Justice League 3000 and further milking of a dumb franchise because theres a movie coming up. Keep up the great work, Marvel. *rolls eyes*

I'm fine with the Guardians getting a bit more promotion, but I see the over saturation point. I just wonder why people are more willing to allow it for The Avengers, X-Men and Wolverine, who are basically most of Marvel's line.

They have "better" taste than me because they like dislike something I like?

Okay,just clearing that up....

"Dumb franchise"? I actually like the GotG,and so do many other people. It's one of Marvel's most well-known franchises and one of the best in comics.

It's a rip-off of JL3000? Seriously? A team of clones/grafted people that can't get along is totally identical to this team....I mean,the 3000 almost made it too similar for me.....

And yeah,Marvel/DC and any company that has a movie coming up from one of their franchises would promote said franchise. That's called being smart,so...yeah...."great work"

Bring on more Marvel Cosmic stuff! :)

@jonny_anonymous: I've come to the conclusion many comic readers must be some sort of closet hipseter. It's cool when it's unpopular but if a company promotes it and pushes it because fans have wanted it then it's popular and deserves hate.

A rip off? LOL you do know that Guardians is decades older than JL3000 right? Fail.

The entire friggin' concept of the teams are nowhere NEAR similar,but hey,it has "3000" in it,so it must be the same.

I swear to god,I cry every time someone uses the "rip off" card,because the argument and reasoning just fails miserably.

It's Weird because 10 Avengers books is fine, 14 X-Men books is fine but the Guardians getting more than 2 books? Gawd Marvel stop saturating the market >_>

This looks awesome, actually! I remember digging the 90s series Jim Valentino did, pretty underrated stuff, a look at different characters and their possible legacis in the Marvel U. I always liked Vance Astro & Starhawk. And their ship was called the USS Captain America, which was pretty awesome. It was kind of like Star Trek meets the MU, and me & my best friend in junior high really dug that. I mean they had Rancor(super-psychotic descendant of Wolverine), Dr. Doom, a whole ton of Punishers, a planet of mutants, the Universal Church of Truth- it was pretty cool. Can't wait to see what Abnett does with this series. If only he were writing the main GotG book as well, instead of Bendis.

When I was younger, I used to go to the little market in my town and buy random back issues for 25 cents a pop. Most of what I bought was the original GotG comics. Definitely looking forward to reading about their adventures again.

You know I would be all for this if we weren't already getting Star-Lord and Rocket Racoon. A little too much, sure they are underrepresented characters but I would rather have one good book than four okay ones.

So you don't tolerate rudeness,and you prove that by being rude?

I'm Twix_Right_Side,can't you read?

And I don't care what I was asked,it's an open forum.

@jonny_anonymous: Dude please fuck off. All I'm saying is that they're overdoing it. Calm your goddamn ovaries. It's okay to promote something.

in what world are they "overdoing it"?

Hyperbole much? So their getting a little advertisement it's not like it's anywhere close to X-Men/Avengers/Spider-Man level. ADVERTISEMENT IS GOOD

This is going to be great! I loved Dan and Andy's Guardians run (not really a fan of Bendis', but oh well), so I'm all for Dan giving it another crack with the original team. Does anyone else think that maybe the original team might appear somewhere in the film? I mean, Michael Rooker is cast as Yondu after all.

I Think people should be happy lesser known characters are being pushed. I think everyone would like to see other characters get the spotlight other than the A-listers.

Because lesser known characters getting more popularity/exposure instead of getting pushed into Limbo is a bad thing now?

@twix_right_side: Listen if you like over saturation then that's cool. I tend to enjoy characters in small doses. Some of my favorite characters are not everywhere and I'm perfectly cool with that.
