Under DnA, the Guardians weren't allowed near Earth and now we see Earth has become the most important planet in the galaxy.
How things change.
I have a bet with Tom Brevoort for all the money in my wallet that Guardians won't make it past issue 12. At the time I had about three bucks in there (lol), so that's what's up for grabs.
Also, looks like Rocket Raccoon will be featured in Nova. Possibly Gamora?
Both Nova and Guardians of the Galaxy are also featured in the Marvel NOW! Omnibus, which we covered previously, but you can check that solicit out again as well, in addition to one for Jim Starlin and a Rocket Raccoon collection.
