COMICS: Intergalactic Adventure In First Look at THE LEGENDARY STAR-LORD #1

This July, Peter Quill flies solo for the very first time in The Legendary Star-Lord #1, the bombastic new series from writer Sam Humphries and artist Paco Medina spinning directly out of the pages of Guardians of the Galaxy and just in time for the highly anticipated summer blockbuster!

By Josh Wilding - 6/7/2014
The notorious interstellar outlaw is striking out to swindle and swashbuckle his way across the galaxy in search of big adventures and even bigger scores. Expect a battle with the Badoon, a fight to save an orphanage, not to mention a little flirting with Kitty Pryde of the X-Men – and that’s just the FIRST ISSUE!

“This book is going to be Peter’s adventures untethered from the Guardians, where he gets to play a little more fast and loose in the cosmic playground, says series writer Sam Humphries. “He likes to fight. He likes to flirt. He flies by the seat of his pants. This book is almost more like a Space Western. It’s about heists and cons, bounty hunters, revenge and all that good stuff.”

“These are the high flying adventures of a space cowboy,” Humphries continues.

From the cold abyss of deep space to the seedy alien underworld, deadly forces await around every turn – and the Star-Lord stands alone. As the brazen outlaw prepares to strike out on a new journey, no fan can afford to miss the continuing adventures of the leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy. An epic new adventure begins right here – if he lives that long! Hang on dear reader, as Sam Humphries & Paco Medina take you out of this world when THE LEGENDARY STAR-LORD #1 explodes onto comic shop shelves and digital devices this July!

"Aim at a high mark, and you'll hit it."

I just truly learned a lot about this site.

dumbest epitaph ever

Really looking forward to this flick!

Love Medina's art

dumb mask
Starkasm - 6/7/2014, 4:59 AM
God that mask is awesome. Bendis needs to bring it back and ditch the power rangers get up they're currently wearing.

Lovely art, but I'd like to see Quill back in his old duds. The movie costume looks dope but it's also a complete 180 from what they were doing in the relaunch

This will always be the definitive Starlord

Anyone else notice they spelled Aim wrong on the tombstone.
Snotzo - 6/7/2014, 5:16 AM
This is his first on-going series, he did have a limited series in the late 90s. He had a mini-series too.

LOL DAT MASK

Star lord is going to be a bigger player in the MU after that movie hits ...
I'm just genuinely happy for Chris Pratt .. He deserves the success coming his way, and comes across as a decent dude, I wish him nothing but the best
Snotzo - 6/7/2014, 5:26 AM
Agree with you 0mega that is the best incarnation. Way better than the original.



However I also loved his Mass Effect look.


p0ppysmic - 6/7/2014, 5:28 AM
Daaaang, Chris Pratt really made the character. Look how Star Lord looks now, more ego, more attitude. Which is good.
MightyZeus - 6/7/2014, 6:00 AM
I like it. Looks pretty good. Although i do wish there where nod's to previous incarnations of Star-Lord's costume. I wonder if there will be reference's in the film, probably not.
MakluIV - 6/7/2014, 6:13 AM
Maybe Quill gets the blue and yellow suit in the Guardians sequel? That would be awesome.
Goji54 - 6/7/2014, 6:21 AM
Thank god DC doesn't needlessly change their comics to be like the movies. Marvel Comics are SO bad these days.
SageMode - 6/7/2014, 7:04 AM
That artwork is great. I'm glad to see Star-Lord's movie costume in the comics. It's badass
Pedrito - 6/7/2014, 7:58 AM
@Goji54
Superman lost the red undies like in the movie. And that's the only character WB has put out recently, so I guess your comment was supposed to be ironic. Haha.
sikwon - 6/7/2014, 8:00 AM
Flarkin awesome.
HurricaneXavier - 6/7/2014, 8:41 AM
I don't think his comment was meant to be ironic, I think it was just stupid.

Maybe if DC could put out a movie and not have to reboot it after a few years we could see if their movie universe changed their comics at all.
XF14 - 6/7/2014, 8:43 AM
The art is awesome, BUT the MCU whoremongering is disgraceful. Never giving Marvel comics another penny.
SCURVYDOG619 - 6/7/2014, 8:49 AM
That original Star-Lord is by Claremont and John Byrne....
GamerKT - 6/7/2014, 9:05 AM
@Pedrito

Superman lost the red underwear two years before Man of Steel came out.
CharlesLord - 6/7/2014, 9:24 AM
Wats funny is that the marvel now suit looks more like his original costume. I agree that the annihilation costume is the definitive version tho. I love the movie outfit tho and its cool to see them implementing them into the comic

SHAMELESS MOVIE TIE IN ALERT!

Good grief.

GoodOlBarry

All you learned is that whoever wrote Starlord's mother decided to make her an optimistic character.

The mask is great but the Baggy cloth costume is complete shit.
scapegoatjones - 6/7/2014, 9:58 AM
lol that image of him in the police line up is all kinds of terrible. nice chin jay leno.
and for the love of god stop with the depicting characters like a little kids squeaky toy.
ScionStorm - 6/7/2014, 12:17 PM
At least the Shameless movie costume inclusion is for a good costume. I like Star Lord's look in the movie. I would rather he wore that NOW than the blue and yellow armor or those horrible generic mass effect outfits of the current NOW. I hope he wears the 2008 outfit in the movie sequel though. That would be the best!
Alfredo27 - 6/7/2014, 12:48 PM
sequel? arent we getting ahead of ourselves
manofmidgard - 6/8/2014, 12:51 AM
love the yellow and blue armor. hope he gets it at some point in the movie. hope they don't do us like fox xmen and never give us real costumes. and no, the black bondage suits (complete with knee pads) in dofp do NOT count.
SnapperCarr - 6/8/2014, 4:19 AM
Damn Marvel loves to milk the MCU.
nibs - 6/8/2014, 11:39 AM
lol @ the number of times Marvel people like Joe Q say the movies don't effect what they do in the comics

Paco Medina needs to work on the anatomy proportions. His figures look like they're all about 3 ft. tall.
