Marvel Comics has announced that Dan Abnett will be writing Guardians 3000, which features the future Guardians of the Galaxy, set for a September release with art by Gerardo Sandoval.

The new series spins out of Guardians of the Galaxy #14, which featured a future Guardians back-up by Abnett.

Guardians 3000 will feature Major Vance Astro, Starhawk, Martinex, Captain Charlie-27, Yondu and one more to-be-revealed character.

"Guardians 3000 is a truly a case of you asked for it, we delivered!” Marvel Executive Editor Mike Marts offered in a statement. “Readers have been begging for the return of the original  Guardians team for a long time… and we’re happy to debut this series right in the midst of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy movie excitement!”

15967 Guardians 3000 is fast, character-driven and contemporary – it’s a great series for readers (both new and familiar with to the Guardians world) to dive in and follow a cast of bombastic underdogs as they attempt to save the Universe,” added editor Katie Kubert. “Seeing Dan [Abnett] tackle Marvel’s cosmic characters again is a blast, and developing this project with him and artist Gerardo [Sandoval] reminds us how much fun making comics can be!”

"True to the original tales, they are trying to save the future from the menace of the Badoon,” Dan Abnett stated. “I wanted to keep that element, and indeed try not to do anything to deny any continuity. So they are freedom fighters, first and foremost, facing an immensely hostile culture. However, they soon discover that the Badoon are just the tip of the iceberg, essentially opportunists taking cosmic advantage of a much deeper crisis. As Starhawk deduces, the very future itself is in danger. History and causality are unraveling and repeating themselves, and not in a friendly 'Groundhog Day’ way."
