Also, a talking racoon won't hurt.
When the GotG rumors started in 2011, I decided to see what was up. Over the course of December of last year, I read the entire Marvel cosmic canon from Thanos #1 in 2004 through the Thanos Imperative. I'm now as big of a Guardians of the Galaxy fan as I am any character in Marvel.
If any of you are unfamiliar and unsure, I suggest you read through the material. It's a hell of a ride.
