‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ #13 kicks off Marvel’s new space age

New teammates, new costumes, and a new artist as Al Ewing begins the next era of his critically-acclaimed run.

Press Release

Ahead of their full April solicitations, Marvel Comics has teased Guardians of the Galaxy #13 officially kicks off a new space age at the publisher. Not only that, the issue will kick off new teammates, costumes, and it’s getting new artist as Juan Frigeri takes over. Fans will note Wiccan appears to be on the roster based on the cover art.

“GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, both the book and the team, are going to be stepping up a gear in 2021, with villains the team have never faced, guest stars you never thought you’d see, and a new teammate you can’t even begin to believe – all coming together for a crisis that’ll shake every planet in the Marvel universe down to the bedrock… maybe even a backwater planet like Earth,” Ewing promised, from a press release sent to AIPT.

So what’s it about?

They were soldiers, misfits, mercenaries, thieves and a family. They were heroes… but times have changed. The galaxy no longer needs heroes. It needs super heroes! In the aftermath of their climatic battle with the Olympian gods, the Guardians of the Galaxy have been deputized by the Galactic Council. New adventures call for new teammates and the Guardians have expanded their roster like never before. Joining Star-Lord, Gamora, Rocket, and Groot will be Young Avengers Wiccan and Emperor Hulkling as well as some surprising new teammates yet to be revealed. Now, when the call goes forth – whether it’s from a stranded team of planetary explorers or Emperor Hulkling and his Kree/Skrull Alliance – the Guardians of the Galaxy answer!

Marvel also released an animated clip for the reveal:
