COMICS: First Look At Covers Of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #2 & #3

Check out our first glimpse at covers for the second and third issues of Brian Bendis' upcoming Marvel NOW! relaunch of Guardians Of The Galaxy, as well as a few variant covers for issue #1. We also have new details on the series from Bendis himself..

There’s a new rule in the galaxy: No one touches Earth! No one!! Why has Earth become the most important planet in the Galaxy? That’s what the Guardians of the Galaxy are going to find out!! Join the brightest stars in the Marvel universe: Star Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket Raccoon, Groot and--wait for it--Iron-Man, as they embark upon one of the most explosive and eye-opening chapters of Marvel NOW! These galactic Avengers are going to discover secrets that will rattle Marvel readers for years to come! Why wait for the movie? It all starts here!

There's a Marvel "next big thing" conference call with Brian Michael Bendis later on today, but we have a few tidbits from the writer now thanks to Newsarama..

“For fans who have been yelling and screaming about how awesome this corner of the Marvel Universe, here’s a brand-new #1, the most reader-friendly place to have them without taking away what makes them special in the first place. Even now when you say the words “Guardians of the Galaxy movie” aloud, you can’t believe that it’s actually happening. The comic book series will show a butterfly effects of recent Marvel events — some obvious, like Secret Invasion, and some not so obvious — that the Guardians will deal with directly. You’re going to see these characters face off with some gigantic villains and concepts."

They all look great!

What a bad ass raccoon
superotherside - 1/15/2013, 1:36 PM
Star Lord still needs a mask. And why is Gamora still in that retarded outfit? I hope this book isn't too Earth centered... I read and liked the originals because it wasn't about Earth...
superotherside - 1/15/2013, 1:36 PM
Oh but Rocket looks great as always.
Spideyguy94 - 1/15/2013, 1:37 PM
Can't wait for this. Bendis is one of my favourite comic book writers ever and he's been killing it with all new x-men, DD end of days and ultimate spider-man. Marvel NOW! in my opinion has been great in terms of quality writing, save for a few shit titles like thunderbolts and cable and the x-force. Remender, Hickman, Bendis, Aaron and Waid have been knocking it out of the park on all there books.

jimpinto24 - 1/15/2013, 1:43 PM
Awesome! Love Rocket Raccoon!

They look great!
DukeAcureds - 1/15/2013, 1:50 PM
What's with the random Deadpool?
Funsize - 1/15/2013, 1:52 PM
Lol @ Rocket Raccoon and Deadpool :P
shamo - 1/15/2013, 1:53 PM
great covers. but what shit artist designed Gam's new costume?
crowlers - 1/15/2013, 1:58 PM
Looking forward to this.
Who's Deadpool referencing with the wig & glasses?
marvel72 - 1/15/2013, 2:05 PM
fantastic cover,can't wait to read this series & as for the movie its my most anticipated movie of phase 2. (if you don't include the avengers 2)
CoolantTech - 1/15/2013, 2:11 PM
Looks like Rocket Raccon is shaping up to be space Wolverine
Cosmic1 - 1/15/2013, 2:19 PM
So starlord can breath in space without a mask, he looks bad ass and alien like with his mask. Stop demasking and darkening everyone for the purpose of movies. I don't give a crap who's under the mask make the movie good. Next thing we know Disney will demasking badger and bounty hunters in Star Wars movies.
DukeAcureds - 1/15/2013, 2:28 PM
If they had to cancel one of the Phase Two movies and it was between Avengers 2 and GOTG, I would want them to drop Avengers 2.
DukeAcureds - 1/15/2013, 2:29 PM
And I'm not ashamed to admit that.
mctrinket - 1/15/2013, 2:58 PM
What's up with Deadpool there?
siggisuperman - 1/15/2013, 3:31 PM
My god DukeAcureds at first your comment made me rage a little but then I realized. I AGREE! O_o
ATrueHero1987 - 1/15/2013, 4:05 PM
Bendis, you've been knocking out of the park with All New X-Men so I will most definitely check out #1 of GOTG!
StarkAnthony - 1/15/2013, 4:10 PM
I actually prefer Gamora in this outfit - the other was completely impractical
TMW1987ProudProWrestlingFan - 1/15/2013, 4:27 PM
I like both the original GOTG stories & the 2008 revamp, but for the movie, I'd hope to god they go with the 2008 look or the SDCC Concept art for Star Lord.

Star Lord shouldn't look like a pretty boy with stubble in the 2013 launch!
LordGambit - 1/15/2013, 4:58 PM
for everyone wondering, I'm pretty sure Deadpool is playing at the Hillary Clinton meme in this one. Still not sold on the new design though. Arc reactors and Mass Effect look isnt selling it for me.
Temple - 1/15/2013, 5:13 PM
@Rormachine *Update* new interior was released for this.

After reading the press conference, and what Bendis had to say about this series, I admit, I'm a bit dissappointed and excited at the same time. Dissappointed, because Bendis is completely rebooting the whole series. No explaination on how starlord is alive, the cancerverse, or anything from DnA's superb run, which sucks. The only thing I'm a bit excited for is that he announced this isn't the whole team, and starlord will get the helmet. Hope adam warlock shows up or any of the old GOTG.
LordHuck - 1/15/2013, 8:24 PM

Not if you want people to actually read this.
HULK2099 - 1/15/2013, 9:43 PM
I want to marry Gamora
Lightsplasher - 1/15/2013, 10:48 PM
The Wolverine-Pose Rocket Racoon is just awesome !!!
Hopin' Bendis will do his work as good that on Ultimate Spidey
RyGoR - 1/15/2013, 11:19 PM
Can't wait to get this title! Marvel is on fire with a lot of these titles!!!! Too bad my wallet is hurting ever so much..........
Hazmat103 - 1/16/2013, 1:47 AM
Is Annihilation & all the subsequent sequels and such worth buying?
Ninjapimp - 1/16/2013, 2:45 AM
i need to read these comics. i need to start at the begining.....looks like some cool stuff
KeefNCookies - 1/16/2013, 7:10 AM
Hate the redesigns... still pissed about Avengers Assemble and the complete lack of explanation of why they're suddenly there and what happened after Thanos Imperative. Hope they dont make these outfits for the movie >.<

On a good note, I look forward to the reviews... it would be really nice to pick this up if its good.
