With Guardians of the Galaxy set to hit this August from Marvel Studios, the comic book side of things sees the return of the fan-favorite cosmic duo known as DnA.
With the release of the April solicits, Marvel announces that Bendis' Guardians of the Galaxy #14 will feature a pair of back-ups from Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning.
In addition, a Guardians of the Galaxy prelude comic from Abnett and Lanning is also solicited for April with art from Wellington Alves.
The return of DnA to Marvel Cosmic is short-lived, however, as Dan Abnett has let it be known that he isn't currently writing with Andy Lanning. The same tweet also reveals that Abnett is interested in writing a cosmic Avengers book.
@MikeFitz538 I'd love to write a cosmic Avengers book solo, (I no longer work with Lanning) More cosmic stuff from me TBA soon!— Dan Abnett + Nik (@VincentAbnett) January 6, 2014
Abnett is currently writing issues of Battlestar Galactica solo for Dynamite.
Lanning is on the new Marvel UK stuff paired with Alan Cowsill.
Both visited the set of the Guardians of the Galaxy movie with director James Gunn.
