After a couple years of focusing on non-comics work -- novels and screenplays -- Dan Abnett is returning to write some of the characters that rocketed him and writing partner Andy Lanning into the comics stratosphere a few years ago, the Guardians of the Galaxy, with the new Guardians 3000 series, which comes out in October.
Before that, though, Abnett has another Guardians-themed project coming out. He co-wrote the new mobile game from Disney Interactive, titled Guardians of the Galaxy: The Universal Weapon, and it's more than just a movie tie-in. He told ArcadeSushi, "What we didn't want to do was create a game that tied so tightly to the movie that they strangled each other. The movie has its own story and the game has its own story."
