Welcome to Journey Into Misery, where I explain complicated comics characters, continuity and concepts to the patient and perpetually perplexed Helena Hart.
This week we’re covering the modern day Guardians of the Galaxy all the way from before they were a team in Annihilation through to the most recent issue of the relaunched comic.
Fan mail, death threats, corrections and questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
We’ve launched a Patreon to cover the hosting costs and hopefully be able to put out more shows that last longer. If you enjoy what we’re doing and want more, please take a look at the rewards we’ve got and consider signing up.
As I go through the podcast, I bring up images to show Helena what a character looks like. You can follow along with this image gallery.
Please read more about Bill Mantlo and consider donating to his ongoing care.
