Guardian Jones 

Hey, there's another interview with Mystifying colleague Casey Jones over at Comic Book Resources today. He needs to tip us off on items like this. Casey's talking about his new Marvel project, "Guardians"...

It's a story about a group of kids who run around playing super-heroes, and one day they have an actual 'alien encounter!' When they end up saving the little guy from danger, they tell him that if he ever needs their help again to just let them know. Well, 14 years later, the alien comes back to Earth and takes them up on their offer! It's up to them to rise to the occasion. It's a really fun story that has elements of 'The Goonies,' 'Last Starfighter,' and even 'Lilo and Stitch.'

Ah, that Last Starfighter comment puts me in mind of Robert Preston's final screen role as the foppish alien Centauri...

"My dear boy, I merely lay dormant while my body repaired itself!"
