Good News For Guardians of the Galaxy Movie: Bendis, Loeb, Wacker, Alonso Marvel Cosmic Doesn't Match Up


After reading Guardians of the Galaxy #1 & 2, and Nova #1 & 2, it's pretty evident that Axel Alonso, Brian Michael Bendis, Stephen Wacker and Jeph Loeb have no idea what they are doing with Marvel Cosmic.

Just look at Rocket Raccoon stating how he is murdering everyone. 

Hickman might be able to save it with Infinity, but if Brevoort is going to edit those issues like he did Fear Itself, may the thunder god help us.

We all know Marvel cancelled the previous Marvel Cosmic regime as a result of Marvel Studios going forth with the Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

Marvel simply couldn't let someone else be on the book that isn't an Architect or what have you.

Well, sales are down; Loeb, McGuinness and McNiven are already gone -- and Neil Gaiman is coming onboard to save Guardians.

How much Gaiman is really involved with the book will tell us its fate.

With Alonso's Marvel Cosmic doing so poorly, some might think this would reflect badly on the Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

Well, from all indications it's not, as director James Gunn has mentioned - numerous times - the previous canceled books by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning.

And we have some more good news as Marvel EIC Axel Alonso states at their CBR column, that the direction of their books doesn't necesarrily follow Marvel Studios' (for once).

While we don't want our cosmic universe to present an aesthetic that is completely at odds with the movies, we aren't worried about matching up 100 percent.

Hopefully, the not matching up parts means Star-Lord's helmet is back in the movie and no Sam Alexander.
