GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY looks like it's going to be
the blockbuster hit of the Summer, so I thought you might like to
see where they got their start. Behold the cover and a few pages from
MARVEL SUPER-HEROES #18, dated January 1969 (on sale from
around October '68), which is when they made their debut. There's no
real point in telling you anything about it, because (going by the stills
I've seen) I very much doubt that the movie bears more than a super-
ficial resemblance to the comicbook which inspired it. (Also, I'm
far too lazy to be bothered reading up on it.)
So, don't bother about the details, just sit back
and enjoy Genial GENE COLAN's art.
BONUS: The Guardians popped up again as an ongoing
series in MARVEL PRESENTS #3 (dated February 1976,
but on sale in November '75). Here's the cover and a few
pages to appease and please your popping peepers!
