With a new movie opening wide this weekend, Marvel is also relaunching the Guardians of the Galaxy comic series. Now, we have an extended first look.

The relaunched run comes from the creative team of Gerry Duggan and Aaron Kuder, and finds the rag-tag galactic heroes finally headed back into space, after being stranded on Earth in the wake of Civil War II. But, don’t think that means the team will be staying out of trouble. Here, we get a look at Rocket’s insane plan to scare a planet with a trojan Galactus, which looks positively bonkers. 

Here’s the official synopsis for the series:

A NEW ERA OF COSMIC ADVENTURE BEGINS HERE! Double ships every month! The Guardians of the Galaxy have taken off into space once more, on their biggest and weirdest misadventures yet! Kicking things off with the biggest heist they’ve ever tried, we join Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon and company as they blast their way through the galaxy, the peacekeepers of the Nova Corps hot on their tails. And once they find themselves caught in a war between The Collector and The Grandmaster, there will hardly be time to explain why Groot can’t grow any bigger, what Gamora is searching for or why Drax has sworn off violence! But don’t worry, we will — with a new twice-monthly schedule, All-New Guardians of the Galaxy has space for ALL your Marvel Cosmic needs!

The first issue of Guardians of the Galaxy drops May 3.
