Marvel Collecting First Appearances of Nova, Star-Lord and Guardians of the Galaxy This May

Body

Today we found out in the Marvel Comics solicits for May that the first appearances of Nova, Star-Lord and the Guardians of the Galaxy will be collected in the Marvel Firsts: The 1970s TPB.

Nova #1 from 1976, Marvel Preview #4 features Star-Lord, and Marvel Presents #1 and #3 sees the Guardians of the Galaxy (though not really the first appearance).

Recently Marvel has been collecting a number of our favorite cosmic characters including Darkhawk and Quasar. Speaking of the Cosmic Avenger, the Quasar Classic Vol. 1 TPB goes on sale tomorrow!

As we've seen in the past from Marvel, they tend to collect stories and characters that will be featured in some way in upcoming arcs. 

And we do know that Marvel has plans for both Nova (though which one?!) and the Guardians. Hopefully we see some more of Darkhawk and Quasar, too.
