Synopsis for "Shattered"

  • Synopsis not yet written

Solicit Synopsis

• Since the beginning of the series, the mystery has lingered… what happened to Groot that made him revert to being a tiny shrub?

• Why isn’t he growing back? And why does Rocket think it’s all his fault? Guest artist Mike Hawthorne joins his frequent Deadpool collaborator Gerry Duggan to tell the tale of the all-too-tragic hedge trimming!


  • Mike Hawthorne's Rock-N-Roll variant originally featured Groot hanging from Rocket's belt. According to himself, he decided to remove it later on because it muddied the composition of the cover.[1]
