This April, you will get the chance to read about the thrilling mission that turned Groot into one of the galaxy’s greatest defenders in an all-new, four-part limited series. The beloved Guardian will headline his very own solo series that will reveal his never-before-told origin and tell the beginnings of his galactic adventures.

Writer Dan Abnett returns to the Guardians universe, having been the mastermind behind redefining the Guardians characters and Marvel space as we know it in his acclaimed run of Guardians of the Galaxy and epics like Annihilation and War of the Kings. Abnett will team up with rising star Damian Couceiro, known for his work on Ghost Rider: Return Of Vengeance and X-Force, to take readers back to Planet X to explore Groot’s early days and uncover the truth about his home and species.

Before he was a Guardian of the Galaxy, young Groot lived a life of tranquility in his serene home world. But when monstrous invaders attack his planet, Groot must accept his heroic destiny! But will this destiny lead him to come to blows with a young Kree soldier by the name of Mar-Vell?

In regards to his return to the Groot, Abnett said:

“I am Groot! No, that’s not right… I am delighted to be back WITH Groot for this series that will explore his early life and adventures, reveal some secrets of his home and his people, introduce some fantastic new characters, reveal a couple of big secrets… and also guest star some VERY unexpected Marvel characters. So it’s back to the future for a blast from the past…. no, that’s not right either… If you like Marvel Cosmic, you’re going to LOVE this.”

“I’m thrilled to be working along with Dan on this origin story of Groot!” Couceiro added. “Groot is a super fun character to work with, he’s cute but also brave and a warrior so there is a lot to play with, and Dan came up with a crazy epic story full of action and fun that I think readers will enjoy a lot!”

The series will hit stands just in time for the next era of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, written by Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly and drawn by Kev Walker, that will kick off after a mysterious threat, known as Grootfall, sends the intergalactic heroes to never-before-seen reaches of the Marvel cosmos.

While details about Grootfall have yet to be explained, fans can be assured that it’ll strike at the very heart of the Guardians and usher in a tragic fate for everyone’s favorite tree-like alien. Marvel promises that 2023 is shaping up to be a defining year for Groot and both series will complement each other in surprising ways!
