Marvel Comics Will Showcase “Cosplay Variants” In October 2015

The New York Comic Con is only a few short weeks away and with that being the case I wanted to make sure that I posted the assorted “Cosplay” variant covers that are going to be hitting the stands starting in October. Some of them will have already come out by the time that the Con begins and the rest will keep following each week until the end of the month. The post will help serve as your shopping list for these issues and the wonderful designs of some truly talented Cosplayers who are featured across the covers. I’m copping the “let the artwork do the talking” attitude this time around but I guess I should say “Let the Cosplay do the talking” based on the topic. Here we go.

Today: “Guardians Of The Galaxy” (TV Series)

Did you love the “Guardians Of The Galaxy”? I know that I did and when I heard that an animated series was coming to pass I knew that I would have to set my DVR for it so I could see what continued adventures would be offered up. Check out more about the show which airs today at some point on the Disney XD Channel. Times are based on your location but it should be easy enough to find on screen.

The Guardians of the Galaxy must find and destroy the Cosmic Seed before it can wind up in the hands of Thanos and anyone else who would abuse its power to threaten the universe.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I loved the live action “Guardians” film without any question and think that since purchasing the Blu-ray release of it have watched it about ten more times. Its that good. Now since I grew up on the classic Marvel Animated series’ from back in the day, well in re-runs at least when it came to the old “Spider-Man” and “Fantastic Four” shows and I loved them. I was also a big fan of the “Fantastic Four” that brought us H.E.R.B.I.E. instead of Human Torch along with “Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends” and of course “X-Men”. I never bought into the whole mindset of being too old for cartoons. Not these ones at least and that makes me welcome this new “GOTG” series with open arms. Yeah it might not be setting up anything for the future sequel but who cares. Let’s let Marvel have a connected animated universe too if they like to generate more attention to the properties and the potential comic books that these shows seem to get these days. What do you think my dear readers? Will you be tuning in to this series or at least check out a few episodes before you write it off? Let me know in the comments.
