First Look: Guardians of the Galaxy # 19

With the release of last month’s Guardians of the Galaxy # 18, writer Brian Michael Bendis promised to finally address what happened to Richard Rider aka Nova when he and Star-Lord were trapped in the Cancerverse with Thanos the Mad Titan.

The gist of it is that Drax was resurrected there because nothing could die in the Cancerverse and Thanos strongly urged the heroes to give him the Cosmic Cube so he could transport all of them home before the Cube began to take over Star-Lord’s mind.

Because this is a Bendis comic, it’s wasn’t a done-in-one tale. Truthfully, it wasn’t even a real tie-in to Original Sin despite having the cover marker for that event. So, the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy # 19 will continue the storyline as Star-Lord explains what went wrong… and the evil Avengers aka the Revengers make their presence known.
