The Press Release:
Because YOU demanded it! This October, blast off into the far unknown and the future of the Marvel Universe for GUARDIANS 3000 – an explosive new series starring the original Guardians of the Galaxy! From the mind of critically acclaimed writer and iconic Guardians of the Galaxy scribe Dan Abnett and fan-favorite artist Gerardo Sandoval comes a high-octane new series starring the team that started it all!
Perfect for new and old readers alike, GUARDIANS 3000 is set to reintroduce the original team to the Marvel Universe in a big way! With a new mission, Vance Astro, Yondu, Starhawk, Martinex and Charlie-27 are back and better than ever. Follow this cast of bombastic freedom fighters as they battle to gain control of the galaxy back from the hostile alien armies of the Badoon!
“Guardians 3000 is truly a case of you asked for it, we delivered!,” says Marvel Executive Editor Mike Marts. “Readers have been begging for the return of the original Guardians team for a long time…and we’re happy to debut this series right in the midst of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy movie excitement!”
But the Brotherhood of the Badoon are just the tip of the iceberg. The Marvel Universe of the 31st Century is a hostile and unforgiving place – with both new & classic foes from throughout Marvel history. A new threat has emerged disrupting the timestream in the past and the present, and it’s up to the original Guardians of the Galaxy to prevent the collapse of all reality! But to save the future, one must look to the past – and the discovery of a mysterious young girl named Geena Drake could hold the key to saving all reality…or destroying it!
What does the future hold? When the dust clears, will there still be a future worth fighting for? Find out as Dan Abnett and the original Guardians of the Galaxy make their triumphant return to the Marvel fold this October when the senses shattering first issue of GUARDIANS 3000 hits comic shops and digital devices!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Straight up I am excited for this new series because it’s the Guardians of The Galaxy team that I had grown up with. Their return to print makes me wonder if we can count on a live action premiere in a future Marvel Studios feature of some kind. Sure that’s forecasting something fierce but let’s face it, none of us expect a “Guardians” film to be released but here we are only a few weeks away from it happening. I’ll close this one up now and ask what you comic book collectors think about this new title. Will you be calling up your local shop and asking for a copy to be reserved for you? Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you again in the soon.
