Abnett and Lanning to assemble Marvel’s Annihilators in March [Updated]

Annihilators #1

In the wake of The Thanos Imperative, Marvel will launch Annihilators, a four-issue limited series that teams writers Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning with artists Tan Eng Huat and Timothy Green III.

Debuting in March, Annihilators brings together the Silver Surfer, Beta-Ray Bill, Quasar, Gladiator and Ronan the Accuser — the so-called “Cosmic Avengers” — as they attempt to “fill the void left by the loss of Nova and the Guardians of the Galaxy.” The miniseries is being billed as an ideal jumping-on point for readers unfamiliar with Marvel’s recent cosmic titles.

“We picked the top flight, first class heroes,” Lanning tells Marvel.com. “The wish list; the A-grade, to contrast with the mavericks and misfits of [Guardians of the Galaxy]. This is the anti-Guardians, though their primary role is the same, and they’re essentially the Guardians’ legacy.”

Each double-sized issue will feature a full-length lead story by Abnett, Lanning and Huat, plus a back-up story by DnA and Green: the Rocket Raccoon and Groot adventure that was announced in July at Comic-Con International as a separate four-issue miniseries.
