Al Migrom:

At the time, Marvel was still in the throes of expanding, and not having enough talent to do all the work. And once you had a few jobs under your belt - for a new assignments. Having done Captain Marvel, which had a lot of outer-space science-fiction-y stuff, and cosmic stuff... I think they felt like I might be a good fit for [Guardians].

Up 'til then, I think all I had done was just take over books that [Jim] Starlin quit, you know? He did Captain Marvel, and when he decided to leave that, I got it. And then he was doing Master of Kung Fu, and when he decided to quit, I got that - briefly. That was the first one where I think they said, "Yeah, let's just skip Starlin and go straight to Milgrom on this one."
