When watching Guardians of the Galaxy, I had only read one of the comics. So afterwards, I wanted to submerge myself a bit more in these characters and their stories. Rocket Raccoon is a great standalone comic series that heavily relies on it’s art and wit.
Skottie Young wrote and pencilled this series and he did an amazing job with it. He is known for his ‘Little Marvel’ variant covers, which are always funny and cute and even had their own series. Now he is creating a series called I Hate Fairyland for Image and he is continuing on Rocket Raccoon and Groot.
The art is bright and colourful and fits well with the story and the overall feel of this series. From issue #5 and on, Jake Parker takes over the illustration part from Young. Parker does a good job in maintaining Young’s art style.
I seriously cracked up when Rocket shot something and when it blew up the phrase Nailed It was written over the blast. It’s these little things that make this series unique.
