mash: advertising / Marvel Universe / DC Universe
When I first heard that they were going to do a Guardians of the Galaxy movie, I was super excited. Have you read any of those comics? If not, you should. It is Marvel’s answer to the Green Lantern part of the DC Universe.
The Guardians of the Galaxy might not be something many people who don’t read comics have heard of. The members of the team that will be presented in the summer 2014 movie are the brilliant Rocket Raccoon, the deadly sexy Gamora, the sarcastically funny Star Lord, the angrily vengeful Drax, and my favorite, the eloquently spoken Groot! The Marvel website has a really great, hyper detailed piece, about the origin of all of these characters. And of course, the Mashed Up household loves Star Wars. Some of us more than others, but everyone definitely has a soft spot for the masters of The Force. So it was easy to pick this month’s Mash-Up. It’s a comic merge two great nerdy-franchise: Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and Star War’s Return of the Jedi.
