Marvel has announced Guardians of the Galaxy: Mother Entropy, a new five-issue limited series from writer Jim Starlin and artist Alan Davis, just in time for the May release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
The story focuses on Mother Entropy, a new cosmic villain created by Starlin for the story. Starlin has created numerous Marvel Cosmic characters, including Thanos, the Infinity Stones, and even the Guardians' own Drax and Gamora.
Starlin bills the series as a standalone story that is accessible to fans of both the Guardians of the Galaxy films and their ongoing comic series.
Alan Davis did some minor redesigns for the characters as well, giving Star-Lord a goatee and putting Gamora back in a suit that's "less Stormtrooper and more ninja," according to Starlin. The series also brings Pip the Troll into the Guardians lineup, something Starlin says he's surprised didn't happen sooner.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Mother Entropy #1 is due out on shelves in May.
