"I am Groot." Three words which stole the show in the surprise hit Guardians of the Galaxy movie, and boosted the value of an Atlas pre-hero back issue that nobody cared about prior to the GOTG fuss.
If you are lucky enough to flip through a stack of back issues from this era, you'll see that the Lee/Ditko combination created dozens of similar names:
MUMMEX, DROOM, TITANO, GORGILLA, KRANG, BLIPP, THORR, VANDOOM,
ROMMBU, KLAGG, TRULL and MOOMBA
to name just a few.
With a sequel planned for GOTG, Groot is here to stay. That, combined with the scarcity of this pre-hero Atlas book, means it's a good investment.
