The Thing’s In A New York State Of Mind In ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ #15 [Preview]

Guardians_of_the_Galaxy_15_Featured

As of Guardians of the Galaxy #15, by Brian Michael Bendis and Valerio Schiti, the titular team officially no longer exists.

Poll: Vote on the Best and Worst Comic Book Romances, Round VI

From Wally West and Linda Park, to Harley Quinn and Mistah J, we're asking you to vote on comics' most famous couples so we can determine the best (and worst) romantic partnerships that comics have to offer. If you think the couple is star-crossed and meant to be, vote 'True Love.' If you think they've got unstable chemistry and can only end badly, vote 'Bad Romance.'

In today's polls, a classic theme; beauty and the beast. Monsters and the people who love them are a recurring motif in fiction, and the tradition has proved especially popular in comics, whether it's Bigby and Snow, Bruce and Betty, or Swamp Thing and Abby. If a monstrous outcast can find love, is that the truest love of all? Or are some people too terrible to love?
