The Hachette Group’s catalogues for distributing Marvel’s titles have gone live for the end of 2014. Obviously, much of what is listed are what we’d expect but there are a few outliers in there.
Guardians Of The Galaxy and Marvel’s Agents Of SHIELD get nice big hardcover art of the movie/TV series collections in July for $49.99 each. Heavy on the glossy photographs.
But… and I’m not sure exactly what this will be responding to, there is a Rocket Raccoon & Groot prose novel. Whether Groot will say anything more than “I am Groot”, whether we will get a further insight into what drives his vegetabley ways, I do not know. Hardcover, 304 pages, $24.99 in July.
And there’s also The Ultimate Fantastic Four Volume 1. 136 pages, $17.99 for August, it could be a reprint of the original trade. But it could also be a sign for whatever Marvel is planning for the Ultimate Universe beginning in April. A new Fantastic Four? Okay, that’s nothing more that speculation.
