Rocket Raccoon #4

Rocket Raccoon #4 wraps up the two ongoing stories of the series as Rocket comes face-to-face with both the other raccoon who has been framing him for murder (who turns out to not be a raccoon at all) and the army of pissed-off princesses who he each saved, dated, and unceremoniously dumped.

The reveal that Blackjack O'Hare is actually the one who has been masquerading as a Rocket lookalike feels a bit like a cheat, but Skootie Young's final page means there's still quite a bit left of this story to explore and Rocket, whether he knows it or not, is not alone. The use of O'Hare also ties back into Rocket's bizarre comic past and the planet of Halfworld where both crazy creatures came from.

Rocket beating down his angry exes provides quite a bit of fun as well as the comic's second ongoing story arc comes to a close with a battle royal which Rocket stumbles out of victoriously. Worth a look.
