As a child, Peter Quill spotted a flying saucer — and it ruined his life forever! Now a withdrawn, embittered adult, Quill strives to become an astronaut — so he can return to space and take revenge! How does a fateful encounter with the Master of the Sun change his destiny — and transform him into the intergalactic policeman known as Star-Lord? And can even the newly empowered Star-Lord triumph over a sadistic group of alien slavers? Collecting material from MARVEL PREVIEW #4, MARVEL PREVIEW #11 and STAR-LORD SPECIAL EDITION.
