Varmint variants: A whole month of Rocket and Groot in November

Superior Iron Man #1 by Tom Fowler. (I love this.)

Can’t get enough of Rocket Raccoon and Groot, the dynamic duo that busted 2014 wide open? Marvel thinks you can’t and in November will present no less than 20 comics with Rocket and Groot variant covers, by artists including Chip Zdarsky, Ulises Farinas and Tom Fowler.  And Marvel SVP sales and marketing David Gabriel agrees. “People everywhere can’t seem to get enough Rocket & Groot! As soon as we came up with the concept to do Rocket Raccoon & Groot variants, the ideas just started pouring in. We couldn’t wait to get our hands dirty creating some really fantastic cover homages. This program is really the best of both worlds and we know it will really excite old and new fans everywhere.”


Here’s the line-up:

· All-New Captain America #1

· All-New X-Men #34

· Amazing Spider-Man #9

· Amazing X-Men #13

· Avengers #38

· Avengers World #15

· Bucky Barnes: The Winter Soldier #2

· Captain America & The Mighty Avengers #1

· Deadpool #37

· Guardians 3000 #2

· Guardians of the Galaxy #21

· Hulk 8

· Legendary Star-Lord #5

· New Avengers #26

· Rocket Raccoon #5

· Spider-Verse #1

· Spider-Woman #1

· Superior Iron Man #1

· Thor #2

· Uncanny X-Men #28

Marvel didn’t give the names of the variant artists but using our deductive powers and the file names, we’ve made some guesses.

Avengers #38 by Chip Zdarsky


Hulk #8 by Tom Fowler
Guardians of the Galaxy #21 by Dustin Nguyen
Captain America and The Mighty Avengers #1 by Ulises Farinas (be still my heart)
Bucky Barnes The Winter Soldier #2 by Sanford Greene
Thor #2 by James Stokoe



  1. That James Stokoe variant is glorious for its Walt Simonson “Frog Thor” homages. Check out the crouching Rocket in the corner and the “broken glass” sunlight effects. Maybe we’ll get some classic John Workman sound effects when the text is revealed.
