Me: This is starting to make me a bit nervous: this is the second solicitation I've seen for a HC with a Guidebook that hasn't been solicited separately. I hope we're not going to have to pick up this hardcover and the previous one if we want to just get Guardians 2 and Agents of SHIELD 4.

The description says "including an ALL-NEW exclusive chapter on S.H.I.E.L.D. Season Four!" which is kind of leading me to believe this. Also it has been kind of quiet on the announcement thread and there has been no mention of GotG Vol. 2 getting a handbook on other sites that usually post solicits for each month. Now I'm beginning to believe that Marvel might skip the single issue format for their Netflix properties and just go for a hardcover compilation since there has still been no mention of a handbook for either of them.

AIDA (2 pgs.)
Phil Coulson update (2pgs.)
Leopold Fitz update (1 pg.)
Ghost Rider/Robbie Reyes (2 pgs.)
Jeffery Mace/the Patriot (1 pg.)
Alphonso Mackenzie update (1 pg.)
Melinda May update (1 pg.)
Quake/Daisy Johnson update (1 pg.)
Holden Radcliffe update (1 pg.)
Jemma Simmons update (1 pg.)
Yo-Yo/Elena Rodriguez update (1 pg.)

1/2 pg.: Darkhold, Anton Ivanov, Eli Morrow, Watchdogs update

1/3 pg.: Agent Burrows, Lucy Bauer, Hellfire update, L.T. Koenig, Gabe Reyes, Glenn Talbot update

One odd thing. All the reprinted pages are numbered in order, up to 98. However, after that, with the new material, the page numbers start bacl at 1, even though the character index lists them as if the numbering continued.

I haven't bought any of these hardcovers, but given the page count for the new material in this hardcover and the last one, I wonder if Guardians 2 and Agents 4 were originally intended to be another flip book. Also a bit disappointing that the Framework didn't get a profile, with capsule blurbs on characters native to the Framework such as that world's Grant Ward and Hope Mackenzie.

Very likely, given past publishing history. Although that would make quite an odd combination!
