Star-Lord, debuting in a magazine has always been a joke to me. Any Marvel character that is the case is interesting. This is because the Marvel Comics format has been completely forgotten over the years. There are a lot of good things in those mags. And I always thought they should bring that format back. It presents a more mature story in tone and action. It has a denser reading than standard floppy fare. I miss them. Star-Lord made his grand entrance in Marvel Trailer #4A copy of CGC 9.0 is up for auction today at Heritage Auctions at the time of this writing for $180. Check it out below.

I’ve always wondered how MCU fans who don’t read manga react when they see these cartoon versions of the characters. How many people will see this and pass it on because it’s so different from what we see on screen?
