Rocket Raccoon #3

After breaking out of prison and surviving a murderous armada made up of dozens of Rocket Racoon's pissed-off ex-girlfriends, Rocket, Groot, and their friend/hostage take a bizarre trip to Sendak and Funtzel's Intergalactic Towing and Recovery Service (of course that's after Rocket goes super-violent on a couple of amateurs foolish enough to refer to him as a "raccoon").

There's plenty of mayhem and crazy violence for fans of Rocket Raccoon here along with finally giving a hero a look at the impostor who has been killing in his name. Longtime fans of the character should also be keenly aware of the mention of the Book of Half-World foreshadowing where this journey may ultimately lead our hero.

We'll have to wait at least another month for the story behind the other raccoon, and probably even longer to find out how the latest setback effects Amalya's murderous plans, but Skootie Young delivers yet again matching art and story for some bizarre fun. Worth a look.
