Marvel has announced that it is releasing a series of Guardians of the Galaxy trading cards to coincide with the release of Guardians of the Galaxy #1 that arrives in March. Sounds like a really good gimmick for collectors, but your local comic shop will need to be one of the “select retail shops hosting a launch party.”
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #1 (JAN130642)
Written by BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS
Pencils & Cover by STEVE MCNIVEN
Courtesy of blockbuster creators Brian Michael Bendis (All New X-Men, Age Of Ultron) and Steve McNiven (Civil War, Old Man Logan), fans are in for the ride of their life as the Guardians of the Galaxy put their lives on the line for the sake of the Marvel Universe. There’s a new rule in the galaxy, and it’s put Earth off limits to any outsiders. But why has Earth become so important? That’s what Star Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket Raccoon, Groot AND Iron Man are about to discover.
Marvel is making this a pretty big deal, as one of the cards pictured above will be ultra rare, which should cause the online auction houses prices to skyrocket.
