COMICS: Marvel Reveals Details And Artwork From Upcoming LEGENDARY STAR-LORD Series
"There was something about Star-Lord that I immediately gravitated to," writer Sam Humphries told MTV News when asked what made him decide to pen Legendary Star-Lord for Marvel ahead of the release of James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy movie this August. "Star-Lord was something that I felt I could have a blast with. He's a charming motherf--ker! He's a down-to-Earth individual. Everyone has a friend like Peter Quill. He's cocky, he's arrogant, but he's always got your back." As for his take on the character, it doesn't sound as if he'll be too different to his big screen counterpart played by Chris Pratt. "Peter sees himself as a legend because he can fly fast, and shoot fast, and flirt fast. But what really makes someone a legend are things buried in yourself that you didn't know you had." Star-Lord will still appear in the Guardians of the Galaxy comic book series, but this solo spin-off will seem him take on his own adventures, including a budding relationship with the X-Men's Kitty Pryde! "You can't get that more long distance than the Earth to the edge of the galaxy. They have this two-way holographic phone, and get to know each other across the stars, and see where this leads them. There's this heat on both sides, but we're going to see how their personalities actually mesh." What do you guys think about Legendary Star-Lord? Will you be picking up issue #1 this July?
Spinning out of Brian Michael Bendis' Guardians of the Galaxy series, this July will see the release of a solo Legendary Star-Lord series from the creative team of writer Sam Humphries and artist Paco Medina. Hit the jump for details on the series and some great artwork!
