First Look At McGuinness Nova & McNiven Guardians of the Galaxy

Body

Marvel Editor Stephen Wacker filled in for Axel Alonso over at the latest CBR column.

They revealed a page from Nova by Ed McGuinness and one from the Guardians of the Galaxy by Steve McNiven.

Wacker offered the following about the new books:

I'm also editing a couple new outer space centered books starting in February – "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Nova."

I do think what we have going for us on these books is that there will be a lot of new people picking these books up because of Loeb and Ed McGuinness' involvement and because of Bendis and Steve McNiven's involvement.

We'll get a bunch of readers who may have been ignoring what has arguably been Marvel's richest mythology over the past few years.

So because of the potential fresh eyes and new readers, I'm cognizant of making those books more approachable. The creators are doing that to make sure a new generation can find their way in. But like any new kind of art, it's risky. I hope people can get excited about it. I think it's some of the best work these guys have ever done.

But what’s important is that we're on the same page about Guardians. There hasn't been a lot of back and forth necessary. Does he get too many balloons in a panel sometimes? Yes. So I give him that note. But he knows what he’s doing and has a clear vision. It's pretty cool to do this book with him and Steve.

(As a side note: It's been interesting to watch his process because he approached the book – particularly the first "Point One" issue – in such a left field way. I like how his mind works.

In the end, the best thing about working with Brian's scripts is that he gives editors a lot to do. [Laughter]
