Guardians of the Galaxy Already Has Fill-In Artist


Looks like the new Bendis/McNiven Guardians of the Galaxy will see a new artist come on board with issue #4.

Marvel EIC Axel Alonso announced that Sara Pichelli will be a new artist working on the series for a new arc.

That didn't take long.

Now Alonso is also trying to push this as the future Avengers or something.

Good Luck.

The last bit of artist news is that Sara Pichelli is going to be doing an arc on "Guardians of the Galaxy." We've spoken so much on the new cosmic books in terms of their big universe-impacting story issues. But Sara is an artist we identify with character work first and foremost. How does her landing this gig expand on Bendis' development of this team as people?

Alonso: Brian is writing "Guardians" because he's uniquely qualified to inject the characters with the depth of personality that's going to make them household names. And Sara enjoys a unique chemistry with Brian -- check out her character work and her storytelling on "Ultimate Comics Spider-Man" and tell me I’m wrong -- so pairing them up on this series was a no-brainer. We are fully committed to make the "Guardians" live up to their reputation as "Tomorrow’s Avengers."

Here's Pichelli's cover for #4 (via CBR):
