If you've seen the INFINITE COMICS Marvel has put out in the past, you know how cool they can be. Marvel has released another one and this time it's FREE.

If you've been waiting for more GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, this is your chance to get the Infinite Comic featuring the team.

Written by Brian Michael Bendis with art by Mike Oeming, Ming Doyle and Mike Del Mundo, the comic introduces fans to the cast told in a way that takes advantage of today's technology on tablets and smartphones.

Here's what Brian Michael Bendis said about the comic:

It’s super exciting not only to be working on the main series but to also bring these characters to an entirely new audience of fans through these new Infinite Comics. Being that these characters are such a big part of Marvel's future it only makes sense that they take the spotlight using the future of comic book reading!

What secrets do Drax, Groot, Rocket Raccoon and Gamora hold? What made them the space faring warriors they are today? Find out as each new issues of the Guardians of The Galaxy Infinite Comic is released every two weeks ABSOLUTELY FREE via the Marvel Comics app (for iPhone®, iPad®, iPad Touch® & Android devices) and online in the Marvel Digital Comics Shop.

I see they were going for the Mike Mignola look, but couldn't get him, so they got two other mikes. Interesting.

Sweet! Good to know.

"Drax, Groot, Rocket Raccoon and Gamora," plus Star-Lord in issue one. Why those 5? Because they're gonna be in the movie!

It's a shame how Bendis and the movie based on his comics have completely forgotten about Adam Warlock, Phyla-Vell, Moondragon, Bug, Mantis, Cosmo, Major Victory, and Jack Flag, in favor of sales from randomly sticking Iron Man on it. (Even though a couple of them are dead, so were Star-Lord and Thanos, so Marvel could bring them back again if they wanted.) It wasn't supposed to be super-mainstream with famous characters. If Bendis understood DnA's run, he'd realize it was about a bunch of lesser known and no-name heroes all getting stuck together. But instead we're getting the movie roster.

I loved this comic. I really enjoyed the Guardians of the Galaxy comics from a while ago (I read the TPBs) I wish I could add them to the pull list, but my wallet is saying no

This comic seemed like it was written to be like when a character is introduced in a movie...hmmmmm

i reed it story's ok but the art is bad its simplicity at it finest

#17 Posted by CookieVonDoom (32 posts) - - Show Bio

I enjoyed it! Served as a fun, short and self contained story before the main dish! I liked the art, worked great for this kind of thing. Looking forward to the upcoming ones!

#19 Posted by Ramier (80 posts) - - Show Bio

The Drax link in the "filed under" section is the wrong Drax...

#25 Posted by Danial79 (2352 posts) - - Show Bio

That is some hideous art right there. Even being free, I'm not sure my eyes will allow me to read it.

#26 Posted by Brownghost (47 posts) - - Show Bio

Art was horrible and writing felt cheesy. At least it was free.

#27 Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus (6885 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah I'm looking at that art and think "Yeaaaaaah Im pretty sure I can see why its free"...but doesn't matter to me one since I don't have iPad..only Kindle :-/

#28 Posted by Cavemold (1684 posts) - - Show Bio

free but not worth my hardrive space

#29 Posted by alex6166 (64 posts) - - Show Bio

Marvel, you need an artist? I've sent samples.

#30 Posted by sanmono (8 posts) - - Show Bio

Please, people, stop being retarded and read a Oeming book. Please.

This. I was enthusiastic to see that they were launching a new Guardians book, but after the first issue it's like wah-huh? Basically a full reboot of Peter Quill.

@Boogiepop: I so agree. Trust Bendis to take something that was alternative and cool and make it about the bold and the bucks. How can they do it without Warlock, it makes no sense having Thanos without him. Plus without him Thanos will be abusing their corpses in no time flat. I bet he ruins Drax too. Abnett should be writing this, end of sotry.

That looks like it's been drawn by a child!

I think, after reading this, that had I paid for this, I would have been disappointed.
