COMICS: Dan Abnett Talks About His Upcoming GUARDIANS 3000 Series

A while back we learned that the original Guardians of the Galaxy would be receiving their own series in October of this year. Come see what legendary comic scribe Dan Abnett has to say about his series after the jump!

Back in early June, it was announced that the original Guardians of the Galaxy team, first introduced in 1969, would be receiving an ongoing series in October of this year. Writer Dan Abnett sat down and had a chat with the magazine WIRED in regards to the upcoming comic book series, with art provided by Gerardo Sandoval. Here's what Abnett had to say about it:

"It's set (to begin with) in 3014 and it's the classic, original Guardians," he explains. "Then some wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff happens. I am dedicated to not overthrowing any continuity. This isn't a reboot or re-invention. Everything's canon. Everything a reader needs to know, be they old and familiar or new and startled, will be in the series. There will be 'Easter Eggs' for the old guard, and total explanation for the newbies."

The writer goes on into detail about reintroducing a character, a female Badoon by the name Geena Drake, from the 10 page short contained within the anniversary special issue and how she'll factor into the series with Abnett saying "she's a key character".

Guardians 3000 #1 is set for an October release with the team consisting of characters from the original 1969 run. The initial team will feature the Centaurian archer Yondu, the Jovian muscle-man Charlie-27, the crystalline Pluvian Martinex, the Arcturan and omnipotent Starhawk and finally, the human psychic Major Victory/Vance Astro.
