Today sees the release of Guardians Of The Galaxy #1 from Al Ewing, Juann Cabal and Federico Blee. And with Al Ewing having been the lead writer on Incoming and also co-writing the upcoming Empyre, it is natural that we may look to see what may be set up for April today. And with a Kree Utopia being enforced, it is left to Richard Rider, Nova, to put a downer on things and recognise that there have been quite a lot of events and events after events leading up to this one.
But here's here to tell us.
The Kree have a new ruler – is that Hulking? The Skrulls sending out War Fleets – are those to Earth? And the Shi'ar are replacing Gladiator with a kid… say, is there any chance it could be Wiccan? Just a stray thought there with nothing to back it up… what other kids could be Kid Gladiator with links to everything else? Smasher? Cannonball?
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #1
(W) Al Ewing (A/CA) Juann Cabal
Once, they were a team of misfits. Now they're a family, and they've earned their peace. But the universe is not a peaceful place — and it's only getting worse. The Great Empires are in turmoil. The rule of law is dead. And amidst the chaos, the Gods of Olympus have returned — harbingers of a new age of war, reborn to burn their mark on the stars themselves. Someone has to guard the galaxy – but who will accept the mission? And will they survive it? Al Ewing (IMMORTAL HULK) and Juann Cabal (FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD SPIDER-MAN) bring you in on the ground floor of a whole Marvel Universe of action and suspense!

Guardians Of The Galaxy #1 is out today from DC Comics… I bought mine from Piranha Comics in Kingston-Upon-Thames. Piranha Comics is a small south London comic store chain with a small south-east store in Kingston-Upon Thames's market centre, which runs Magic The Gathering nights on Fridays, and a larger south-west store in Bromley, which also runs Magic nights and has an extensive back issue collection and online store. If you are in the neighbourhood, check them out.
