Al Ewing and Juann Cabal join the “Guardians of the Galaxy” this January
What’s better than a sass-talking space raccoon? Said raccoon in a dapper suit.
And what’s better than that? Al Ewing writing and Juann Cabal illustrating him.
So good news, everyone, because Ewing and Cabal will be the new creative team behind Guardians of the Galaxy come this January. Ewing’s The Immortal Hulk is consistently one of my favorite Marvel titles, and Cabal’s been doing great work with Tom Taylor on Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, so I’m down for this.
And yeah, that’s a fly suit Rocket’s wearing. Check out the details below.
AL EWING TAKES COMMAND OF THE GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY IN JANUARY
THE GUARDIANS BLAST OFF INTO A DARK NEW ERA IN GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #1
New York, NY— October 4, 2019 — Al Ewing is currently taking the Hulk on strange new journeys in the critically-acclaimed IMMORTAL HULK and starting in January, he’ll do the same for everyone’s favorite ragtag group of space adventurers. Just announced at the Marvel’s Next Big Thing Panel at New York Comic-Con, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY will be launching in January under the new creative team of AL EWING and JUANN CABAL. Ewing’s spin on Marvel’s flagship cosmic title is sure to be intense, putting the Guardians in the center of a new intergalactic war and going up against the latest threats facing the galaxy, including the reborn Dark Gods of Olympus.
“GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY is a high-octane spy-fi action-adventure set against an evolving backdrop of interstellar politics, intrigue and suspense,” says Al Ewing. “War is coming - and if the Guardians can't stop it, they're going to be right in the middle…”
The Guardians of the Galaxy are a family as much as they are adventurers and Juann Cabal is the perfect artist to balance those two tones. Known for his dynamic work on books like X-23 and FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD SPIDER-MAN, the Guardian’s latest mission will look as beautiful as it does dangerous.
More details on the upcoming title will be released at a later date but you can bet that everyone’s favorite spacefaring heroes are about to experience the brand of chaos that only Ewing can deliver!
