We Are Groot; Groot to Get a Spinoff Comic

Guardians of the Galaxy Groot

New information that surfaced online early today tells all that Guardians of the Galaxy’s own Groot will be getting a new Marvel spinoff comic!

Marvel’s log line states the following for the new Groot comic:

When Rocket and Groot are on an intergalactic roadtrip and calamity strikes, the two get separated — and for the first time in years, Groot’s on his own! Written by comedic ace Jeff Loveness (“Jimmy Kimmel Live!”) and drawn by Marvel Comics newcomer Brian Kesinger (Disney Animation), get a front row seat for EXPLOSIONS, SPACE SHARKS, ALIENS, AND INTERGALACTIC HITCHIKING (YEAH, BABY! YOU READ THAT RIGHT)! Whatever may be coming Groot’s way, one thing’s for sure — it’s going to be a GROOT adventure!

Along with the log line that Marvel provided for the first Groot comic, the cover for it has also be revealed.

Guardians of the Galaxy was without a doubt one of my favorite movies from 2014. Without the film, I among millions of others wouldn’t have even been introduced to the Guardians of the Galaxy and unique cast of characters. Seeing as the ‘Rocket Racoon‘ comic was the best selling comic for July of last year, it’s hard not to believe that we would eventually see a comic centered around Rocket’s right hand man… err tree. According to Jeff Loveness, he has sent in the first issue and has started working on the second with an arc planned out.
