Brian Michael Bendis

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Guardians of the Galaxy

gotg-lede


Guardians of the Galaxy #1 hits stores today, a new series by Brian Michael Bendis and Steve McNiven that hopes to boost the profile of Marvel's space-faring super-team ahead of next summer's movie release, so that when your non-comics friends ask you, "Who are these Guardians of the Galaxy?", you don't answer, "the who-dians of the what-now?"

But... who are the Guardians of the Galaxy? They're actually talking owls from a series of fantasy novels about... no, sorry, my editor is telling me that is not correct. Let's see... the series tells the story of Jack Frost, Santa Claus, the Sandman and... no, I'm getting another note here, hang on... A talking raccoon and a tree? That can't be right.

If you're feeling a little confused, don't panic! ComicsAlliance is here to tell you everything you need to know about the Gladiators of the Gridiron! And then some.

‘All New X-Men’ #1: Bendis Script Excerpts And Immonen Artwork

untitled-1-1348796640

By far the most intriguing of the incoming Marvel NOW slate is All-New X-Men, which not only brings the publisher's longtime Avengers architect Brian Michael Bendis to an ongoing mutant title for the first time, but truly threw everyone for a loop when it was announced that the book would pull the original X-Men of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby out of the past and drop them into present day X-Men lore (let's not think about "what year it was" when those '60s stories are meant to have happened in "Marvel Time," it gives me the fear).
