July 15th
-Rocket Raccoon & Groot: Steal the Galaxy! Prose Novel (Rocket Racoon & Groot) 
HARDCOVER - This is the first 'prose' Guardians of the Galaxy novel. It is written by Dan Abnett and features Rocket Raccoon and Groot transporting something important that everyone in the galaxy seems to want. It's sure to be a great read with Abnett writing.

July 22nd
PAPERBACK - This is a collection of the original Star-Lord comics, back before he donned his now-famous mask. They are written by Steve Englehart and Chris Claremont. Add this to your collection if you want Star-Lord's origin story collected into one single book.

What do you think? Will you buy any of these? If so, let us know which ones you are most looking forward to, by dropping a comment below!


  1. ART OF THE MOVIE! ART OF THE MOVIE! Can't freaking wait.

    1. Without a doubt, that's the book I'm most pumped for as well. The prose novel is a damn close second.

  2. Thanks for making this list. It makes it a lot easier to keep up with all the massive amounts of merchandise Marvel is pushing out.

  3. I bought the junior novel for my son.

  4. Good list, but you forgot the Rocket Raccoon and Groot: Steal the Galaxy novel!

  5. Glad that James confirmed additional filming as reported by earlier this month. I think the additional filming may either be a scene where Stan Lee will cameo as a Nova Corp talking to Groot (with Vin Diesel in his mo-cap suit playing Groot), the scenes with the actor who was selected to play Thanos or it may be both. What do you think, Cameron? Maybe this can be your poll for tomorrow: "What Might The Additional Filming for Guardins Be For?". Please have this as your poll for tomorrow, Cameron.

    1. My best guess is that it's the Thanos scenes or something for the mid-credits scene. Something to (hopefully) lead into either Age of Ultron or the next Cosmic movie.

    2. I would not be surprised if they would shoot the Thanos scenes during reshoots, that way they could have a smaller crew and less chance of word getting out.

  6. So well there be a Complete Abnett and Lanning Collection 2 to get the rest of the 2008 run?

    1. Most likely. I'm sure the rest will come out after the movie is released.

  7. there was anonced a new rocket raccon series From Skottie Young Starting In July, is that also true???

    1. It's true. These are just the hardcover and paperback books, not the comic issues. You can find those here:
