The second volume of Guardians of the Galaxy was published in May 2008, written by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning. The title features a new team of characters from the Annihilation: Conquest storyline.

Abnett and Lanning's work on the Annihilation: Conquest story helped lay the foundation for the new Guardians of the Galaxy book that they had been wanting to launch for some time. Editor Bill Rosemann, who had also edited Annihilation: Conquest, provided more background: "As the planning of Annihilation: Conquest came together, it occurred to us that, if things went well, there would be a group of characters left standing who would make for a very interesting and fun team." It also provided the motivation the team would need, as "on the heels of two back-to-back wars, they’re out to prevent any new Annihilation-size disasters from erupting.
