Sneak Peek: Guardians of the Globe

Published on March 19th, 2010

For the past week Image Comics has been putting out posters that are making fun of the Marvel campaign “I am…” as part of their Guardians of the Globe. We have seen everything from my boy Invincible to President Obama and yeah, even Harry Potter. I am not a Potter fan but I do love the artwork on it. It looks like next week we will find out who the REAL Guardians of the Globe are.

Here is the Press Release Image has put out.

Invincible is off fighting the Viltrumite War, so who’s watching the shop while he’s away? GUARDIANS OF THE GLOBE, a new six-issue miniseries coinciding with INVINCIBLE: The Viltrumite War, tells Earth’s story.

In GUARDIANS OF THE GLOBE — co written by superstar Robert Kirkman (Invincible, The Walking Dead, The Astounding Wolf-Man) and Benito Cereno (Invincible Presents: Atom Eve, Invincible Presents: Atom Eve & Rex Splode) and drawn by gifted newcomer Ransom Getty — heroes both familiar and new struggle to protect Earth in Invincible’s absence.
“Needless to say, Invincible, Spawn, Rick Grimes, President Obama, and a certain boy wizard aren’t GUARDIANS OF THE GLOBE,” jokes Robert Kirkman. “The teasers released this week have been all in fun, but next week’s teasers will get down to business, revealing who’s a Guardian. Invincible’s absence due to the Viltrumite War has left people vulnerable, and GUARDIANS OF THE GLOBE will answer the question, ‘What’s up on Earth?’”

Tune in next week to find out who protects Earth while Invincible is away as the GUARDIANS OF THE GLOBE teasers continue!

GUARDIANS OF THE GLOBE, a six-issue miniseries written by Robert Kirkman and Benito Cereno and drawn by Ransom Getty, will start its run in August 2010.

I love Invincible so anything that has to do with that book is fine with me.
