The eagerly anticipated relaunch of Guardians of the Galaxy boasts one of the most eclectic and powerful lineups in the team's history and a new, yet familiar, face will be joining the series this February.
Marvel Comics has released their advance solicitation information for February 2019 which includes details about the second issue of writer Donny Cates and artist Geoff Shaw's upcoming run on the popular title revealing a new version of Thanos will be the subject of a search by the interstellar team. The advance solicit info from Marvel, standard cover illustrated by David Marquez, and variant cover illustrated by Matteo Scalera are below:

In the pages of Cates' just-wrapped Cosmic Ghost Rider miniseries, a baby Thanos was raised by the eponymous spacefaring Spirit of Vengeance who will likely be on the upcoming Guardians roster.
