All-New Guardians of the Galaxy #1 from Gerry Duggan and Aaron Kuder

The Guardians of the Galaxy may be grounded on Earth for now, but you can’t keep a band of cosmic outlaws away from the stars for too long.

This May, Star-Lord, Rocket, Groot, Gamora and Drax will return to the cosmos in All-New Guardians of the Galaxy, with the all-new creative team of writer Gerry Duggan (Deadpool, Nova), artist Aaron Kuder (Death of X), and colorist Ive Svorcina (Secret Wars).

All-New Guardians of the Galaxy brings some changes for the Guardians. The team’s roster has shrunk down to the core five Guardians, Groot is stuck in his tiny form and no one can explain why he isn’t regenerating, and Drax the Destroyer is now Drax the pacifist.

ROCKET #1

Written by AL EWING

Cover by MIKE MAYHEW

He thought his paws were clean, that they were on the up and up. But just when he thought he was out, they grabbed him by the fuzzy tail and pulled him back in. One day, and old flame (who happens to be an Otter) swims back into your life and just like that you’re back in the game…the heist game. From the dingy alleys of Knowhere to the far corners of deep space, they’ll speak in whispers that one of the best there ever was is back. If you need a safe cracked. If you need a vault busted. If you’ve got a big score that needs taking…you call Rocket. Just don’t call him a raccoon. It won’t end well for you.
