Trailer released for new Guardians of the Galaxy series – Grootfall is coming!


This April, Marvel’s new ongoing Guardians of the Galaxy series is set to kick off, with Collin Kelly, Jackson Lanzing and Kev Walker taking the team into a dark, uncharted corner of the cosmos.

Here’s the official blurb:

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #1 introduces an overwhelming new cosmic threat to the Marvel Universe, one that emerged from the very heart of the team: GROOTFALL. This mysterious phenomenon will push Marvel’s beloved team of intergalactic super heroes to the Manifold Territories: an uncharted, lawless area of Marvel space filled with never-before-visited planets and undiscovered alien species. The Guardians have brought to their lowest depths and their found family is fractured like never before.

Tying to outrun their tragedy, the Guardians rise as the Folds’ only chance at salvation. Can they rediscover their heroism and humanity on the bleakest frontier? Can they forgive the failures of their past? Or will they fade into the dark, eternally unforgiven?

And to give readers their first glimpse at what to expect, Marvel have dropped a brand new trailer for the series, which you can feast your eyes on below.

Speaking about the series, Lanzing said “These characters have been psychedelic super heroes, lovable smugglers, and cosmic war fighters who are living under constant chaos. This was a chance to take them somewhere completely different. So, the Western became a way for us to say that the tone of this book is going to be different from the Guardians books that you’re familiar with, and it allows us to get a little crazier.”

Kelly continued, adding “I think fans can also get excited about the structure of our run. Initially, we’re popping off five individual issues. This is the story of every week coming to a new town and discovering the trauma, drama, and pain, then engaging with that and not necessarily resolving it in the best of ways, but stepping into it in their own way and then coming out the other side.”

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #1 hits comic shops and digital platforms on April 12.
