Marvel is looking to make trading cards popular again! I used to collect all kinds of comic trading cards back in the day, I've also got a collection of trading cards for The Tick and Batman The Animated Series. Does anyone even make trading cards anymore? If so, do people still buy them?
Well, Marvel is going to include a small set of cards with issues of the upcoming Marvel NOW! relaunch of Guardians of the Galaxy. The set includes Star-Lord, Rocket Racoon, Iron Man, Gamora, and Groot. I can't wait to see these characters brought to life for the big screen! Here's the press release...
This March, Guardians of the Galaxy #1 launches in style with special limited edition trading cards, ONLY available at select retail shops hosting a launch party! That’s right, one of the biggest launches of the year just got bigger with one of a kind collector’s items! Courtesy of blockbuster creators Brian Michael Bendis (All New X-Men, Age Of Ultron) and Steve McNiven (Civil War, Old Man Logan), fans are in for the ride of their life as the Guardians of the Galaxy put their lives on the line for the sake of the Marvel Universe. There’s a new rule in the galaxy, and it’s put Earth off limits to any outsiders. But why has Earth become so important? That’s what Star Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket Raccoon, Groot AND Iron Man are about to discover.
But that’s not all! ONE of these trading cards will not be as readily available as the others. But which one? Well you’ll have to head on over to a local participating retailer to find out!
