Marvel Comics Guardians of the Galaxy #1

“Welcome to a whole new era for the Guardians of the Galaxy”

According to info, Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Nebula, and Mantis attempt to outrun the tragedy of Grootfall, a mysterious phenomenon involving their beloved teammate where they will find themselves at a terrible crossroads that leaves the Folds’ fate hanging in the balance.

“Welcome to a whole new era for the Guardians of the Galaxy, riding like mad through an endless alien dust storm of sun-soaked tragedy, intense violence, and deeply dysfunctional heroes,” co writer Jackson Lanzing said in a statement to Marvel.com. “The optimistic peacekeepers that defeated the reborn Olympian Gods and overcame The Last Annihilation have fallen about as far as they possibly could—and now Peter Quill and what remains of his found family will have to fight like hell in a new western-fueled frontier to find a scrap of forgiveness. After all, the Guardians are a fire—and a fire only ends one way.”

Guardians of the Galaxy #1 hits stores April 12 from Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzig with art by Kevin Walker who did art on Annihilation: Nova.
