Drunk Super Heroing in Old Man Quill #3

A lot of people probably think Old Man Quill is just the latest attempt by Marvel to cash in on the Old Person ____ trend of making comics set in the future starring elderly versions of popular characters. But could it actually be a cautionary tale about the perils of super heroing while intoxicated?

Well, probably not. But we do see this in a preview of next week’s Old Man Quill #3, wherein Star-Lord is heralded as a savior of the wastelands, leading Rocket Raccoon to encourage him to indulge in some heavy drinking…

At first, Star-Lord resists, but soon gives into his demons…

No, Star-Lord! One is too many, and a thousand never enough!

It looks like Peter has really been putting them down. And now, it seems, duty calls…

From yourself, Peter. You need to be saved from yourself.

Old Man Quill: Demon in a Bottle hits stores next Wednesday.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
