The Guardians of the Galaxy have taken off into space once more, on their biggest and weirdest misadventures yet! Kicking things off with the biggest heist they’ve ever tried, we join Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon and company as they blast their way through the galaxy, the peacekeepers of the Nova Corps hot on their tails. And once they find themselves caught in a war between The Collector and The Grandmaster, there will hardly be time to explain why Groot can’t grow any bigger, what Gamora is searching for or why Drax has sworn off violence! But don’t worry, we will – with a new twice-monthly schedule, All-New Guardians of the Galaxy has space for ALL your Marvel Cosmic needs!
Welcome to the Austin Books & Comics New Reader Guide! We’re here to introduce some of our favorite books that you may not already know about, and maybe even help you find your next favorite comic series!
Starting with 2006’s sadly out of print Annihilation event series, and especially since 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy film, the cosmic part of the Marvel universe has been at the forefront of the Marvel universe. Mostly set apart from the events of the other Marvel titles, the cosmic titles offer action, adventure, and thrills like nothing else in comics today.
In this guide you’ll find a collection of Marvel’s recent cosmic titles.
All titles are available at the store, and if not we will be happy to special order them for you!
