We all love the Guardians of the Galaxy. Peter Quill, who’s more likely to be called “Star Munch” by an adversary than by his chosen moniker, “Star-Lord.” Gamora, who’s dealing with the mother lode of daddy issues. Drax, who discovers he’s more than the revenge he seeks. Rocket, torn between two worlds, and Groot, the ultimate giving tree. They all come from nothing—or something much, much worse than nothing—and the world expects as much from them. But together, they become something greater. They’re exactly the kinds of losers we root for, because even in their failures, they act valiantly...against their nature. They’re reluctant heroes, just as most of us are when the situation arises, but when the chips are down, they bring their A game and are ready to die for what they know is right.
Over the next 100 pages, we’ll venture off into deep space as we look at everything Guardians-related, how a somewhat obscure band of misfits jumped off the comic book page to the big screen, how an indie filmmaker with a passion for superheroes turned them into some of the most popular characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and how they became household names. So, in anticipation of Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3, hop on the Milano, kick it into hyperspace and turn the page for everything you never knew you needed to know about the MCU’s favorite band of lovable losers.
