Groot and Rocket Raccoon have got a lot of buzz lately largely in part to the success of the Guardians of the Galaxy film. They have been showcased in both solo stories and the Guardians of the Galaxy series but Marvel will be taking it a step further this November as they invade the variant covers of some of your favorite Marvel titles. I like that Marvel is showcasing  Groot and Rocket on a broader scale because their stories are good. I hope Marvel continues focusing on their cosmic heroes because there are a few with great stories that play a larger role in the Marvel universe. Check out the variants below.

Which cover is your favorite? Let’s hear it in the comments
