Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind comic book tells the story of the new Disneyworld ride

Visitors to Disneyworld’s Epcot Center are currently experiencing the excitement of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, a highly innovative indoor roller coaster experience featuring the cast of the MCU Guardians of the Galaxy films. But now, a new comic book one-shot from Marvel Comics tying into the theme park ride will let those of us who aren’t prepared for the sojourn to Epcot Center to experience just a bit of the magic back at home.

Appropriately titled Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind #1, the one-shot from writer Kevin Shinick and artist Gerardo Sandoval focuses on efforts by the government of Xandar to build a Xandarian Pavilion on Earth (just like the Xandarian Pavilion that accompanies the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind attraction at Epcot Center).

In the MCU, Xandar was completely decimated by Thanos (off camera) in Avengers: Infinity War, but we’ll overlook that.

Peter Quill tries to guide the Xandarians – and his fellow Guardians of the Galaxy – on a tour of Earth. But while the team is distracted, a cosmic Celestial arrives to enact a plan to full-on destroy the Earth, leading the Guardians to kick back into action to save the day.
