Get (To? Two?) Guarding With “Gamora #1” & “Star-Lord #1” On The Wednesday Run

gamora-1-coverI remember when the Guardians of the Galaxy film was first green-lit.

Finally the Guardians of the Galaxy have found the Cosmic Seed, on Earth, where Thanos found them and took it from them like they were children (I could make a Star-Lord joke here, but I’ll refrain). Now Thanos is using the Seed to make the Earth into his own super-weapon, who can stop him? Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “I Feel the Earth Move.”
