Marvel has announced a new series starring the original Guardians of the Galaxy by Dan Abnett launching in October.
Abnett, along with artist Andy Lanning, is responsible for the second, modern incarnation (2008) of the Guardians of the Galaxy team, which was assembled from characters in the Annihilation: Conquest storyline. The original Guardians of the Galaxy first appeared in Marvel Super-Heroes #18 in January 1969, written by Arnold Drake and penciled by Gene Colan. The first team consisted of Major Vance Astro, Martinex T’Naga, Captain Charlies-27 and Yondu Udonta, who together fight the alien race known as the Badoon in the 31st century. Starhawk and Nikki later join the team.
Guardians 3000 #1, written by Abnett, with art and cover by Gerardo Sandoval (Tomb Raider, Cable and X-Force), arrives in October, well timed to cash in on the anticipated need for new Guardians content after the August release of the movie (see "New 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Trailer").
