Guardians of the Galaxy #18 was the finale of ‘The Last Annihilation’ cosmic crossover event. Without giving too much away in terms of spoilers, we can say everything and everyone wasn’t annihilated as Dormammu wished.

For those looking to the horizon for what’s next, Marvel Comics’ next planned Guardians of the Galaxy-related comic is December 22’s Wastelanders: Star-Lord #1 (opens in new tab)one-shot, starring an elderly version of Peter Quill and Rocket from an alt-reality future. Given James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is scheduled for a 2023 release date, expect the full team to get its own book again in advance of that somehow – but at least not until 2022.

September 22’s Guardians of the Galaxy #18 is the end of an 18-issue run on the title by writer Al Ewing, joined by artists Juann Cabal, Marcio Takara, Juan Frigeri, and others. This run, the sixth volume of the Guardians of the Galaxy series, recast the Guardians away from being a group of outcasts and into being the Avengers of the cosmos, acting as true superheroes protecting the galaxy for the first time in a major way since the original version of the team 20+ years ago.

Guardians of the Galaxy #1 – #12 has been collected in Then It’s Us (opens in new tab) and Here We Make Our Stand (opens in new tab), with a collection of #13 – #18 titled We’re Super Heroes (opens in new tab) planned for November 18.
