Rocket Raccoon 1 (September 2014)

Rocket Raccoon #1

Rocket Raccoon is cute. Part of its cuteness is how it’s not supposed to be cute, even though it’s Skottie Young and he does cute stuff.

Raccoon isn’t supposed to be cute because it’s all about how Rocket is actually a dangerous space rogue and Casanova. The ladies can’t get enough of him. Why would be the first question? It’s funny, of course, because he’s a raccoon or whatever but it would have been nice for Young to pay it some attention.

Unless no one can figure it out, other than he’s a cute little critter and the ladies just can’t resist.

The issue moves pretty well from joke to joke. One problem would be the sitting and talking on the phone sequence. Young tries to keep it lively with Star-Lord having an action sequence but it’s not enough.

Young’s the right Raccoon artist, but maybe not the right writer.
