If you’re going to this year’s San Diego Comic Con, you’ll be able pick up a Rocket Raccoon iPhone case, a Rocket Raccoon mug (both by Joe Quesada), as well as a whole slew of other things. Check out the list of merchandise at Marvel’s website, here.
They don’t include a photo of the mug, but the iPhone case looks great!
This week, on the red carpet at the Saturn Awards, Joss Whedon spoke to Collider about Guardians of the Galaxy, as well as the rest of the Marvel line-up! Check out the video below. The video won’t embed, but you can check it out here.
Among some other comic-inspired art, I found these wonderful little watercolor pieces done by David Bisbal Gallart on his DeviantArt page, which can be found here. I’m not sure if these are for sale, but I hope they are because I’d love to hang them up on my wall.
I’m not sure how I missed it, but James Gunn tweeted a photo of Dave Bautista “getting a facial” (har har) last month.
Obviously, it’s a make-up test. It’s not much, but it’s enough to give me a pretty good idea of what he’ll look like fully made up and I have to say I think it’ll be pretty solid.
Found this really great black & white, DnA-era Star-Lord by Jeffrey Huet and, man, does it kick some serious ass. If you like this (or just black & white comic art in general) I highly recommend you check out the rest of his work here.
Well, sort of. Last week, director James Gunn, who previously mentioned studying live raccoons for the Guardians of the Galaxy, tweeted a photo of himself with a little furry friend:
Awwwww. What a cute little guy.
So, even though there’s been no official casting news for the voice of Rocket, I’m really glad to see they’re trying to go for a more realistic-looking raccoon, as opposed to some goofy, cartoony raccoon. I’m sure I’ve mentioned that before. I just can’t help but feel giddy looking at James Gunn playing with a little raccoon.
Friday, Guardians of the Galaxy scribe Brian Michael Bendis tweeted a variant cover for Guardians of the Galaxy #1:
It’s more or less the same as what we’ve been seeing from the current artists behind the new series, but I like it. Glad to see Rocket Raccoon front and center. It’s still weird to me that Iron Man is a Guardian.
