Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy by PatrickBrown
Guardians of the Galaxy is the new sci-fi adventure we've all been waiting for, jam-packed with the perfect amount of comedy, action, and Chris Pratt. The newest Marvel movie featuring six anti-heroes and their journey to become actual heroes has stolen our hearts. But how much do you know about the movie and the comic that inspired it?


Deviant AlexGarner was one of the official cover artists for the Guardians of the Galaxy covers! (He's since switched over to working on covers for DC Comics).

PaulRenaud is another amazing artist and deviant who has worked on Guardian of the Galaxy covers for Marvel.

The Story Behind the Comic
  • First published in 1969, the Guardians of the Galaxy comic featured a completely different team  of superheroes fighting crime in space in the 31st century. The team was made up of heroes from Earth, Jupiter, Pluto, and Centauri-IV. Each was the last of their kind. 
  • They were replaced with the new team in 2008, featuring Star-Lord, Gamora, Rocket Racoon, Adam Warlock, Quasar, Drax the Destroyer, and Groot. 
  • Adam Warlock and Quasar are not featured in the new movie (although Adam Warlock may have had a cameo...) 
  • Thanos, who is featured as a villain in Guardians of the Galaxy, also appears at the end of the Avengers movie. 
The film has also spurred a great deal of creativity! Here's some of the amazing fan art to come out:

Great film. One of my favorite sci fi/comedy films.

I've seen the movie. It . Was. Awesome.
I know about the Thanos part. When I was in the cinema, Thanos showed up on the screen and I turned to my sister ( who was completely uninterested ) and kept nudging her. She STILL doesn't get it. The Collector ( dude with the white hair ) appeared at the end of 'Thor: The Dark World'.

I had a marvelous time watching Guardians of the Galaxy! I hope to see it once more at the movies and I will purchase the DVD when it is released for sale. It has something to tease all the emotions.

Of course, you get the joke from the first Paul Renaud cover, right?

(Hint, Spider Man, said by Mary Jane.)

I haven't read any of the original Guardians of the Galaxy comics. But I have read the comics regarding.... ah, hm, how do I keep this spoiler-free----regarding the big mega-story-arc the past umpteen Marvel movies have been spinning toward. And as far as that overlying story goes, I was satisfied with this movie. :)

Also.... Groot is so much love. :happycry:
