Our favorite Marvel cuddly bad ass (Not Squirrel Girl) is going to be shining in his own comic book series this coming July, one month before the summer blockbuster hits theatres.
"I think it's going to have a connection to that nostalgic feeling for 'Looney Tunes,' that old animated flavor where everything wasn't squeaky clean, you know? Daffy Duck would get his bill blasted off with double barrel shotguns... That's what I grew up watching, and being able to play around with that in this hyper-superhero intergalactic universe will be a lot of fun."
As the issue #1 cover suggests, Rocket's buddy and awesome talking tree friend / muscle Groot will also play a role in the book. In fact, at one point the series was billed as "Rocket Raccoon and Groot." "I felt that it would be a disservice to that character if we naturally focused on Rocket all the time, and had [Groot] as a side thing, but with his name in the title," said Young. "But you can't have one without the other, so he's not going anywhere. He's not going to be on every page, but he's definitely going to play big roles in all the stories I have in mind. He's definitely going to be his buddy throughout all the stories."
Can't wait for this book, i'm a huge fan of the series as a whole but to give Groot and Rocket a story of there own is amazing and should be hilarious.
