Marvel To Release New ‘Legendary Star-Lord’ Series Just In Time For The ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Movie
We’ve already heard about the new Skottie Young Rocket Raccoon series coming this July, but it’s not the only Guardians of the Galaxy solo title that will be hitting shelves that month.
Marvel has announced the first issue of a new Legendary Star-Lord series, which will also be coming in July, just in time for the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. The new series will be written by Sam Humphries (Avengers A.I.) and feature art by Paco Medina (Ultimate Comics X-Men).
July’s going to be a big Guardians month for Marvel. Not only are the new Star-Lord series and Rocket Raccoon #1 debuting, the company will also publish issue 17 of the ongoing Guardians of the Galaxy series by Brian Michael Bendis and Ed McGuinness and a one-shot titled Guardians of the Galaxy: Galaxy’s Most Wanted #1 by Will Pilgrim and Andrea Di Vito.
Beyond that, quite a few books being released in July will have GotG-themed variant covers. Marvel is also releasing a $49.99 hardcover volume of concept art and behind-the-scenes photos from the movie titled Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Art of the Movie.
Then, if you’re not totally burned out on Guardians of the Galaxy stuff, the movie, which is directed by James Gunn, will be out August 1.
