The eagerly anticipated crossover between Marvel's Avengers and the bestselling manga "Attack on Titan" doesn't feature only Earth's Mightiest Heroes but also the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Anime News Network reveals a first look at a printed page from the comic, appearing in Japan's "Brutus" magazine, which shows the Guardians soaring in to the tune of "Hooked on a Feelin'" to give the Avengers some relief in their fight against a Titan.

Plotted by "Attack on Titan" creator Hajime Isayama and illustrated by Gerardo Sandoval, the crossover titled "Attack on Avengers" is described as a "What If?"-style story in which Captain America, Iron Man & Co. battle the 46-foot Female Titan on the streets of New York City. However, as the page above and the original teaser demonstrate, she's not alone.

Although the story is published in English, Anime News Network reports it's accompanied by a Japanese translation guide. The issue of "Brutus," which goes on sale Saturday in Japan, also includes a discussion with C.B. Cebulski, Marvel's senior vice president of international business development, about the popularity of "Attack on Titan" in the United States.

Debuting in 2009, "Attack on Titan" is a post-apocalyptic fantasy set in a world where remorseless, flesh-eating giants have all but wiped out humanity, whose remnants are forced to live within a country surrounded by three enormous walls. The series has sold more than 30 million copies to date and inspired spinoff manga, light novels, video games and a hit anime. A live-action movie is also in development.
