Thanks to Civil War II, the Guardians of the Galaxy are grounded on Earth and for Peter Quill that means he's stuck on his homeworld for the first time in decades. While his situation might be grim, his new ongoing series should be anything but, thanks to the creative team of Chip Zdarsky and Kris Anka, and Marvel has provided us with a preview of Star-Lord #1.

In the most recent retelling of Star-Lord's origin, he left Earth in his teens after stealing an experimental Kree spaceship and joining up with Yondu and his crew. He's been back to Earth on a few occasions since, but never for any prolonged period of time, so it'll be interesting to see how he adapts to a world he left behind.

Also, and if you'll excuse us a moment... "Dem abs"

Peter Quill might have been born on Earth, but he’s been away a LONG time. How does a man go from soaring through the stars as the legendary Star-Lord to living with his feet planted firmly on the ground? What kind of job options are available for a guy whose CV mostly consists of “guarding the galaxy”? One thing is certain, Earth has a new guardian. Also, a new bartender.
