Once a revolutionary idea tied to Logan, the ‘Old Man’ title has become somewhat of a classic at Marvel. From Logan to Hawkeye to, now, Star-Lord, it is an idea that has gained so much traction that even the Distinguished Competition has borrowed it (for “Old Lady Harley,” obviously). This new 12 issue series welcomes “Old Man Hawkeye” writer Ethan Sacks and brings in artist Robert Grill (“Iceman,” “Book of Death”) to tell the story of an aging Peter Quill, and we’ve got an exclusive first look at the first issue, dropping on February 6.

THE FAR-FLUNG SAGA OF THE ONCE AND FUTURE STAR-LORD BEGINS! Meet Peter Quill. He used to be Star-Lord – you know, the legendary outlaw – but it’s been quite some time since he’s gone by that name. Taking over for his father as the Emperor of Spartax, Quill put the life of spacefaring adventure behind him for one of leadership and responsibility. Quill grew up. But things didn’t go as planned. Decades have passed, and Peter is haunted by tragedy. Down and out, Quill’s existence means nothing…until the former GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY drag Peter out of his funk for one last mission! The heist of a lifetime – and Quill’s harrowing quest for redemption – begins here!

Thanks to Marvel for the preview, and make sure to pick up the issue on Wednesday!
