We knew that Marvel’s Silver title for Free Comic Book Day this year was Guardians Of The Galaxy related. Now we know it will have a Defenders story too.
Well, there is a new Guardians film out on the same weekend as FCBD this year. And a new Defenders TV show landing from Netflix. And new launches for the Guardians comic and for Defenders as well.
First, blast off with Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket Raccoon and Groot as they head for the stars and right into an all-new ongoing series! Creators Gerry Duggan, Aaron Kuder and Ive Svorcina bring you over-the-top action and out-of-this-world adventure as the stage is set for May’s highly anticipated ALL-NEW GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #1! As this unlikely band of misfits returns to outer space once more, nothing will prepare them for their first run in with the new Nova Corps!
Then, head back down to Earth and the mean streets of Hell’s Kitchen as the blockbuster creative team that brought you Civil War II, Invincible Iron Man and Ultimate Spider-Man bring you their next explosive epic in…THE DEFENDERS! Superstar creators Brian Michael Bendis, David Marquez and Justin Ponsor unite Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist as they go head-to-head with the new criminal element in the Marvel Universe. What new player is running things in the underworld? Find out here with a 10-page tale that leads directly into THE DEFENDERS #1 this June!
May 6th, folks. Here’s the new solicit and cover. As for the gold title? Spider-Man and Secret Empire!
