We've seen the solicits for the new Guardians of the Galaxy and Nova -- watered-down versions of their former cosmic selves.

And as we have been previously told by Marvel editor Tom Brevoort, if you don't like it -- go buy Green Lantern.

So with that, here is your alternative to Nova and the Guardians of the Galaxy: DC Comics, Keith Giffen, Tom Raney and Scott Kolins' new cosmic comic book, Threshold.

Giffen's already compared the series to what he did previously with Annihilation and Guardians of the Galaxy, and I'm betting he is going to do with Blue Beetle what he did for Nova.

Below you can check out the solicits for the issues, with Threshold starting in January.

Sold!
