You know having read let’s say, a crap-ton of superhero comic books, I’ve read and seen some pretty weird stuff. Sometimes time travel is involved and my brain melts like an ice cream cone on the hottest day during the summer. Telltale has now broken my brain so much, I’m not sure I can properly file my taxes.
Telltale has recently released the first episode of their latest game, Guardians of the Galaxy. The game is of course based on the superhero space group from the pages of Marvel Comics, but is more based on the movie adaptation by James Gunn from 2014. So do try and keep a hold of your sanity when I say that Telltale are releasing a comic book based on the game that’s based on a movie that was based on a comic book. Writing this article right now is a task, believe me.
Yeah, Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series is a five-issue miniseries that acts as a prequel to the game that is once again based on a movie that was based on a comic book, seriously editing this will be the hardest thing I do all week. Fred Van Lente is writing it with the art being handled by Salva Espin as David Nakayama colors it. Here is the solicitation for the first issue coming out in July.

So I can only assume that the comic will have the Guardians of the game meet the ones from the movie who will then run into the originals from the comics and thus make reality continuously collapse in on itself. I need to lay down.
