With GUARDIANS 3000 #1 landing in October, there's a new team of Guardians in town—and they're actually the old team of Guardians, who just so happen to be the future team of Guardians.

You catch all that?

The all-new ongoing series by Dan Abnett and Gerardo Sandoval will push the original lineup—a team of alien super heroes from the year 3000—back to the forefront in a big way. Since most of the characters might be new to comic book fans familiar with the lineup currently crusading through the modern Marvel cosmos, we've assembled a list of comics for you to read in order to get a grip on the original Guardians!

Meet the founding Guardians in this, their classic debut from Marvel's Silver Age! Major Vance Astro, Charlie-27, Martinex, and Yondu—four characters you'll see in GUARDIANS 3000—all band together against the warlike aliens called the Badoon, setting the stage for many adventures to come.

The original Guardians, plus new additions Starhawk and Nikki, travel to the modern day Marvel Universe to team-up with the Avengers. Together the two teams had to put a stop to the threat posed by the time traveling cosmic being known as Korvac!

After two decades of guest starring in other heroes' books, the original Guardians finally got their own ongoing series. Firelord, a former herald of Galactus, joined their ranks as they continued guarding the 31st century from threats even more terrifying than the Badoon! 

The modern day team interacted with the originals when a temporal error threatened to destroy the 31st century. With the fate of their future in the balance, only the all-knowing Starhawk—both a presence on the present and future team—possessed the solution to stop the annihilation!

in every article about the gotg they never mention Aleta, in the 90's comic, she was an integral part of the team and one of my favorite characters, but they always forget about her or downplay her. This really irks me
