With a Guardians of the Galaxy movie coming out in 2014, you can expect Marvel to pimp out this property with the subtlety of a sledgehammer to the chest. So it should come as no surprise that the House of Ideas unveiled its plans for a new Guardians of the Galaxy ongoing comic series by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Steve McNiven for this March.

Bendis has a history of taking some of the company’s less popular concepts and turning them into full-blown bestsellers, and the thought is that he will do the same thing here. With a roster that will be identical to what we’re getting from the eventual movie, this book should act as a primer for fans to get accustomed to the world of the Guardians.
