Plot by H-E-D
Peter Quill: legendary outlaw, Star-Lord, galactic superhero, sorcerer.
Wait... sorcerer?! Seriously? Nobody tell Doctor Strange.
The Guardians of the Galaxy have disbanded. Star-Lord has become a disciple of the Master of the Sun and settled on a planet called Ciress, the “Kamar-Taj of Space”. He's cleaned up his act. He spends his days meditating, practicing elemental magic, studying runic languages, and sleeping with Giselle Villard, a wealthy Ciressan heiress. Star-Lord would remind you that "clean" is a very relative term.
His days of guarding the galaxy are over… until the Shi’ar Empire is thrown into chaos by the Hell Lords of Chandilar! With the Imperial Guard captured, Adam Warlock alone is bold enough to go to their aid. The news stirs Star-Lord's dormant heroic impulses, and he rallies a rag-tag group of sorcerers’ apprentices – Mantis, Moondragon, Magique, Ika, Krugarr – to aid Warlock and save the day. Together, they will be known as the SORCERERS OF THE STARS.

Sorcerers of the Stars Vol 1 2

Issue #2 Cover

Written by JEFF PARKER
Plot by H-E-D
Chaos reigns as Chandilar is occupied by Ak’ma, Hell Lord and master of the Wrathian Core!
As the group fights to protect civilians, Moondragon and Star-Lord both think they should be the ones giving the orders.
Krugarr realizes that it’s hard to communicate in the midst of battle when you can’t speak and nobody is fluent in Lemistan sign language.
Mantis’s powers open her mind to the emotions of those around her. She must struggle to remain composed in the face of not only her own fears, but the fears of the very people she’s trying to save!
Magique is the latest in a long line of Shi’ar spellweavers, but never knew magic could be used on such scale. Now her home is being consumed before her very eyes. When Adam Warlock tells her that her power is essential to the defeat of Ak’ma, will she be able to step up to the plate?
If they can manage to save the day, there’s going to need to be a serious discussion about what this team is.
But if Ak’ma can subdue the Imperial Guard, what chance do a bunch of sorcerer’s apprentices have?

With Ak-ma’s invasion defeated, the seven magic-users decide to form a team, the Sorcerers of the Stars, to safeguard the galaxy. But first, it’s time to take a well-earned break in the Shi’ar capital of Chandilar.
Adam Warlock advises the Shi’ar Imperial leadership on how to best prepare the Empire for future magical threats. Warlock is bad at vacations.
Meanwhile, high off the adrenaline of battle, love is in the air! Or, lust, at least. It’s a little unclear.
Star-Lord hooks up with Magique! Nobody tell Giselle Villard, his wealthy hookup back on Ciress. Or Gamora (What, you thought they’d broken up?)
Mantis can sense everybody’s emotions, except the crystalline Ika’s. That just makes her all the more alluring.
Krugarr, a mouthless snakeman, longs for the telepathic Moondragon. There’s an insurmountable roadblock to his affections, and it’s not the mouthless snake part.

On the advice of Adam Warlock, the Shi’ar Empire takes steps to increase it’s magical capabilities.
Unfortunately for Ika, the Crystalline Conjuror, the first of those steps was the annexation of her homeworld Crystalium into the Shi’ar Empire!
Nobody thought to ask her about that, of course. Or the people of Crystallium for that matter.
As the planet descends into the chaos of resistance, Moondragon is determined to keep the Sorcerers of the Stars neutral. But can the team’s freshly forged bonds survive the strain of war?
Those bonds are tested when they discover that one of their own is leading the charge! As a member of the Imperial Guard, and their sole sorcerer, Magique finds herself on the front lines of the Shi’ar conquest.
Will Ika hold the peace, or join the revolution? Will Mantis follow the group, or her heart?
Star-Lord trusts Adam, but he’s not sure how conquest squares with the Master of the Sun’s doctrine of balance.
The people of Crystalium are hopelessly outmatched, even with their magic. How high a price is their prince willing to pay to regain his people’s independence?

Under the consul of a shadowy figure, Prince Moltar of Crystalium has sold his people to Ammon, the Demon Prince of Chaos!
Imprisoned for ten thousand years by the magic of Zhered-Na (a story for another time), he is eager to spread his domain across the cosmos once more.
The Sorcerers of the Stars must aid the Shi’ar against Ammon to avoid galactic catastrophe. But aiding and abetting imperialism doesn’t sit well amongst most of the team.
Especially when the key to defeating Ammon is to destroy the Prisma-Crystal, the most ancient and cherished artifact of Crystalium.
Nor does the revelation that the annexation was Adam Warlock’s idea! Can the Sorcerers trust their most senior member’s moral compass?

Mantis and Moondragon have been abducted to Cymradia, known as the homeworld of Mentor, the Shi’ar Superguardian!
Centuries of careless experimentation by the Brain-Lords, their local leadership, have genetically doomed the Cymradian race.
Now that the crises in the empire have showed them that magic is real, the Brain-Lords of Cymradia wish to use it to give their people new bodies.
Thanks to their mastery of telepathic magicks, Mantis and Moondragon are the keystones of their scheme – and their first intended host bodies!
By the time the Brain-Lords discover the true forces in play, it will be too late.
Meanwhile, Krugarr has found the trail that will lead the Sorcerers right to their kidnapped teammates. But without the Moondragon or Mantis around, he has no way of telling them!
Even if he could, it might not matter. Enraged and frightened by the disappearance of Mantis, Ika finds an easy scapegoat in Magique. Even if the Shi’ar sorceress can swallow her pride to make peace, will Ika listen?
Meanwhile, Adam Warlock makes a decision that will change the team forever, and Star-Lord receives a message from Gamora of dire consequence.

His unfaithful ways exposed, Giselle Villard has gotten the two-timing (three-timing?) Star-Lord imprisoned on spurious grounds. Even on a world of magic, money is power.
To everybody’s surprise, Magique and Gamora get along swimmingly. Is Star-Lord’s spot on the team about to get filled?
The Master of the Sun arrives with the imprisoned Star-Lord, about his future.
As Ika and Mantis set off on a couples retreat, a heartbroken Moondragon throws herself into her work. She has a realization of dire consequences.
One Hell Lord was a freak accident. Two Hell Lords, a worrisome coincidence. But Three? Too much of a pattern to be accidental. There’s a conspiracy at work.
Meanwhile, A lonely and isolated Krugarr accepts a fateful offer from his new friend, who is still definitely on the level and not sketchy.

Remember when we said Krugarr’s new friend coming to Ciress couldn’t be a bad thing? We might have gotten a little ahead of ourselves.
Unbeknownst to Krugarr, this friend is actually Hybrid, a telepathic Dire Wraith mutant that’s been stalking the team ever since their adventure of Eoduun.
They’ve made a deal. He’ll gift Krugarr the powers of telepathic magic. All he needs to do it is the Star of Catalax, an ancient artifact held within the Vaults of Ciress.
Meanwhile, Star-Lord is remitted to R'lalmis, home of the Order of the Sun, for final judgment. Will he forge himself a new destiny, or will sorcery be a new addition to his long list of failures?
And then, everything changes when Moondragon figures out the shocking true identity of the one orchestrating the Hell Lord conspiracy.

With the Star of Catalax embedded in his chest, Krugarr has become the avatar of Kalothir, queen of the Hell Lords of Chandilar, empress of destruction!
It’s all hands on deck as Ciress defends itself from the Hell Lords’ Trojan horse.
Featuring cameos from as many of your favorite magicians as the Bullpin will allow! (No promises they’ll speak, but we all know a background cameo in a splash page is just as sweet as character development, right?)
The Agents of A.R.C.A.N.A. are here, alongside Dark Angel and Jennifer Kale, the Spellbinder! Loki, Sorcerer-King of Jotunheim, answers the call! As does Nico Minoru – or, rather, Lamashtu!
If Ciress falls, one of the most magically powerful places in the universe falls into the hands of evil. But with the universe’s magicians occupied by one Hell Lord, the Shi’ar Empire has nobody to defend it from the rest.
The coup de grâce?
This was all Adam Warlock’s plan.
Not a trick, not a hoax, this is the real deal. The galaxy’s most storied hero is the mastermind behind this horrific string of catastrophes.
But why?
And what can the rest of the Sorcerers do to stop him?

Ika, Mantis, Magique and Gamora have destroyed Adam Warlock’s demonic instruments — among them the Asgardian artifact he received from Loki in CIVIL WAR: SORCERERS OF THE STARS — and freed Moondragon.
Things are far from over, however, as Kalothir still reigns supreme over Ciress.
The Star of Catalax that gives Kalothir her conduit into the mortal realm can only be destroyed at her own hands. That seems unlikely.
The only hope is to remove the Star from its host, but Kalothir’s avatar grows stronger by the second!
Peter Quill arrives with reinforcements in his first act as the all-new MASTER OF THE SUN.
Adam Warlock isn't willing to help them -- but thanks to a deal with his dark side, the Magus, Moondragon wields the power of his Quantum Sorcery!

Quantum Sorcery allows its user to access the power of every possible version of themselves.
Magus taught Moondragon to use Quantum Sorcery to harness the Dragon of the Moon from her past iterations – or, so she thought.
Is it only a matter of time before the Dragon takes control once more? And will this aid or hinder her search for Hybrid, the one responsibility for the tragedy that befell Krugarr and Ciress?
Meanwhile, Magique has resigned from the Imperial Guard — and was a little insulted to find that Gladiator had a replacement lined up so quickly. Who is she if not a Superguardian?
Magique II isn’t the only new member of the Imperial Guard. Who is the new name among their ranks, and why is Ika so mad about it?
Now the Master of the Sun, Peter Quill has no time to play superhero. But that doesn’t mean he’s content to let the name Star-Lord fallen into disuse. Who will be his newly appointed successor?

It’s a perfect distraction for Ika, still enraged that one of her own from Crystalium has joined the Imperial Guard as the Crystalline Conjuror.
On Pama, Mantis learned how to fine tune her empathy to be able to distinguish Dire Wraiths.
In a cruel twist, the hunt brings the Sorcerers to Lemista, homeworld of their fallen comrade Krugarr.
What sinister plans does Hybrid have for Lemista? The very thought of it enrages Moondragon – and that rage is nourishment to the Dragon of the Moon.

This, and the scryers on Ciress begin detecting pockets of Anti-Magic throughout the galaxy. But amidst the rebuilding efforts, there’s no one to spare for investigation.
That includes the Sorcerers of the Stars, who are off hunting for the despicable dire wraith named Hybrid!
Their quest has brought to the distant world of Lemista.
As they’re hunting shape-shifting dire wraiths, they aren’t confused when they encounter him pretending to be their fallen teammate, Krugarr.
What they lack in shock, they make up for with rage. None more so than Moondragon, who feels the burden of Krugarr’s death most strongly.

If she can’t get herself under control, Hybrid isn’t going to be the only casualty! All of Lemista is at stake, not to mention her teammates. Is this the end of the Sorcerers of the Stars? Hopefully not, because with Anti-Magic spreading exponentially, the universe is going to need them. Not to mention, the Kyln just went offline.
Surprise, this is a PRELUDE TO NEGATION!

The Intergalactic powers that be would see history not repeat itself. And so the armadas of dozens of empires converge of the Crunch, prepared for attack. Or so they think.
Meanwhile, in a jail cell on Ciress, Adam Warlock starts screaming.
