Rocket Raccoon Review

Rocket Raccoon by Skottie YoungRocket Raccoon, Vol. 1: A Chasing Tale
by Skottie Young, art by Filipe Andrade (2015)

Rocket Raccoon has been a hero to the weak, a champion of good, a heartthrob to many intergalactic females, but his high-flying life of adventure may be a thing of the past when he’s framed for murder. And the authorities aren’t the only one on his tail! (Get it? Tail?)

The real killer is an imposter who seems to be one step ahead of Rocket at every turn. It’s up to our hero and his best pal Groot to find the truth!

Graphic Novel Review

If you loved the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, you’ll love Rocket Raccoon too. It delivers everything: action-packed combat, epic space battles, snark galore, and an unrestrained sense of lighthearted fun that makes it a joy to read. You can’t take it too seriously, but it’s the perfect book to keep you going on a hot summer day.

Rocket Raccoon features cameos from Starlord, Drax, and Zamora, but for the most part it’s Rocket and Groot off on their own adventures. (And really, who doesn’t want that?) Groot fans will get a special treat – the last issue is from Groot’s point of view, with every dialogue bubble and visual text filled with I. Am. Groot. It works surprisingly well, and is the perfect bit of irreverent humor to finish off the volume.

I Am GrootRecommended for:
* Marvel fans
* Anyone seeking a light, fun read
* Comics newcomers looking for an entry point
