How to Get Started on Guardians of the Galaxy

So you just saw Guardians of The Galaxy in theaters, and want to know the best way to become a fan of the comics too? Look no further! Pete's Basement's got your back on where to get started.

The best way to get started on the current team of Guardians of the Galaxy is through the classic Abnett/Lanning series from 2008, which picked up right after Annihilation: Conquest.

The current team started to take root (not a Groot pun I swear!) here, in the wake of a universe-wide attack by the alien Borg-esque lifeform The Phalanx, led by Ultron!

You can grab that trade paper back right here at Amazon for a pretty cheap pricetag. Check out the link below.

If you don't want to be bothered with all the back story, you can jump on the new Marvel NOW! series that started last year with Brian Michael Bendis at the story's helm, and drawn by Steve McNiven.

This series is currently up to issue 17, and features all of the outer space goodies you saw in the movie. Trades which are a collection of several of the new Marvel NOW! series issues are out and about too. You can also find these at Amazon below.
