October 30th, 2014 – They’re already invading your favorite comic book titles this November, bringing with them the best and brightest talent in the comic industry. Today, Marvel is proud to announce that the breakout comic book characters of the year – Rocket Raccoon & Groot are coming to one additional, previously unannounced cover in December! That’s right, December’s SPIDER-WOMAN #2 will get the last Rocket Raccoon & Groot variant of the year, courtesy of legendary artist Simone Bianchi!
“We were totally overwhelmed by the response to the Rocket Raccoon & Groot variants when we released them last month,” says Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel. “When Simone Bianchi said he wanted to do one too, we couldn’t resist! We couldn’t be happier with the stunning cover he turned in.”
Rendered in Simone Bianchi’s unique style, this previously unannounced variant provides a classic homage to the iconic cover to Amazing Spider-Man #129 – starring everyone’s favorite Guardians of the Galaxy! Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on the final Rocket Raccoon & Groot variant of the year when SPIDER-WOMAN #2 hits comic shops in December!
