Guardians of the Galaxy’s Star-Lord is getting a whole new remake and also getting his own solo comic book series with Marvel NOW! Now, we have our first look thank s to Comicbook.com. Costume designed by artist Kris Anka. Designer Anka said more about his design:
“My basic approach with this new Star-Lord design was I wanted one that encompassed all his previous designs. I think it’s safe to say Peter has had a lot of different costumes over time, so I wanted to bring them all together into one cohesive look.
“The first thing I knew I wanted was to make the undershirt a throwback to Peter’s original costume; it seemed like the perfect opportunity. Everything else was forged out of creating a combination between his movie costumes, which he has been rolling around in, with his [Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning Guardians of the Galaxy] military looking costume. The helmet is iconic now, so that didn’t change.”
Star-Lord writer Chip Zdarsky chimed in to talk about the artist and Star-Lord’s now look saying:
“I’ve said it before that if you have Kris Anka on your book and DON’T get him to re-design something? You’re a monster. So I’m eternally grateful that our bosses Jordan D. White, Kathleen Wisneski, Darren Shan, Axel Alonso, Joe Quesada, Stan Lee and Walter Disney are NOT monsters so we could get this gorgeous new outfit. It’s fresh and fun with some really nice ties to previous outfits. Kris is a genius”
