First Look: Guardians of Knowhere #1


Even with no more galaxy, there’s still a need for Guardians.

At least there is during Secret Wars. With Battleworld all that remains of the Multiverse, there are still a few things in existence not confined to the surface of the crazy quilt world ruled by Doom. Specifically, there’s a floating Celestial head, and nearby, there is still a Knowhere. Full of convicts and criminals, it needs someone to look after it.

In Guardians of Knowhere #1, the superstar team of writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Mike Deodato are ready to show us who’s ready to step up and answer the call. Spoiler: some characters from Guardians of the Galaxy might be involved.

Here’s how Marvel sums up the premise of this Secret Wars tie-in:

"Yet amid this vile hive of killers, thieves and thugs – there is hope. People who will stand and defend those who cannot defend themselves – the Guardians of Knowhere! But there is a new power rising inside this head of a dead god. Suspended thousands of miles above Battleworld’s surface, a dangerous new foe stalks the alleys and corridors of this floating fortress. A villain with their crosshairs aimed squarely at the Guardians of Knowhere! Who is this new foe and what are they after? No one knows! One thing is for certain – not everyone will walk out of Knowhere unscathed."

That sounds maybe not so good for your favorite Guardians, but then again, death might not be permanent during Secret Wars. We just don’t know yet.

In any case, we’ve got a first look at three pages of Deodato’s art while you wait for the finished product to arrive. Guardians of Knowhere #1 arrives in stores and on digital on July 15.
