Rocket Raccoon #7

After crash landing on a frigid planet full of monsters and snow ninjas on the far edge of the galaxy that makes Hoth look hospitable by comparison, things take a turn for the worse. Well, considering Rocket was already using his friend's arm to fuel their fire to keep them alive while all his weapons froze in the intense cold, things weren't going all that well to begin with.

Rocket Raccoon #7 offers an interesting premise by attacking the one aspect of Groot that we know to be true - although he can be cut, crushed, smashed, and blown to bits the living tree always grows back. However after being bitten my a space dog that somehow poisons his friend's regenerative properties, Rocket Raccoon is forced to accept the the very real possibility that Groot might die.

Thankfully there is something for Rocket and his new snow ninja friend Jinx to do as the egg of one of the monsters that poisoned Groot may hold the cure (that is if Rocket can survive long enough on his quest to retreive it). Worth a look.
