Exclusive: Marvel Announces All New Guardians of the Galaxy

The Guardians of the Galaxy may be grounded on Earth for now, but you can't keep a band of cosmic outlaws away from the stars for too long.

This May, Star-Lord, Rocket, Groot, Gamora and Drax will return to the cosmos in All-New Guardians of the Galaxy, with the all-new creative team of writer Gerry Duggan (Deadpool, Nova), artist Aaron Kuder (Death of X), and colorist Ive Svorcina (Secret Wars).

All-New Guardians of the Galaxy brings some changes for the Guardians. The team's roster has shrunk down to the core five Guardians, Groot is stuck in his tiny form and no one can explain why he isn't regenerating, and Drax the Destroyer is now Drax the pacifist.

The series will pick up some time after "Grounded," the final arc of the current Guardians of the Galaxy series. All-New Guardians of the Galaxy #1 kicks off with the Guardians on a job and embroiled in a war between two of the Elders of the Universe, the Collector and the Grandmaster.

ComicBook.com spoke to Duggan, Kuder, and editor Jordan D. White about what fans can expect from All-New Guardians of the Galaxy. You can also see Kuder's cover art for All-New Guardians of the Galaxy #1 and some of his character sketches in the gallery below...
