The Guardians of the Galaxy, stars from both comics and film, will also soon appear in a novel (ie. a REAL book, as some snobs might say), in April of 2017. Written by Young Adult (YA) author Corinne Duyvis (visit her website), the upcoming novel will place an emphasis on the character of Groot, and force the Guardians to ally themselves with a not-so-nice alien that fans of the Guardians movie will recognize: The Collector!
Here is the write-up of upcoming book Guardians of the Galaxy: Collect Them All from Duyvis’ website:
We are Groot!
When the Guardians attempt to evacuate a Kree prison planet and end up in a fight for their lives – what else is new? – they discover their old pal Groot is stretched a little thin. Someone is planting stolen branches of the monosyllabic hero and selling the saplings across the galaxy!
The search to find Groot’s missing pieces forces the Guardians into an alliance with the unscrupulous Collector, but the real problem is more complicated than he wants them to believe. The seller is a kid. And she’s got more than a few things in common with Gamora – like green skin and a wild temper. Now with an unruly teen in tow, the Guardians attempt to track down the remaining Groots – and discover an interplanetary conspiracy. War looms on the horizon. It’s a race against the Collector, Groot himself, and the entire Kree armada. It’s battle as Rocket likes it best.
After this new Guardians book drops, we will read it and give you a review.
