Marvel Announces Rocket Raccoon And Groot Homage Covers For November

So it turns out that, defying any expectations that we may have had five years ago, Rocket Raccoon and Groot are the most popular characters in the most popular movie of the summer. In other words, get used to seeing them literally everywhere — starting with 20 of Marvel’s comics for November, where the talking tree and his surly procyonid pal are taking over with a series of variant covers.

Even better, the variants are homages to classic Marvel covers, ranging from classics like Captain America’s reappearance in the Marvel Universe back in Avengers #4 to one of the most obscure and self-referential homages that I’ve ever seen. It’s actually pretty amazing. Check ’em out next to their inspirations below!
