Comic recommendation of the day.
Rocket Raccoon by Bill Mantlo, Mike Mignola, and Alan Gordon
Continuing our tour of the cosmic side of Marvel’s universe, in preparation for the next Guardians of the Galaxy film, we now leave behind the ’70s and come to 1985.
Upon reading this series, you will be left with an inevitable question: Why did it take almost 40 years for Rocket Raccoon to appear in a feature film? Any fool could see there was money just lying around waiting for a studio executive to merely reach out and grab it.
Mike Mignola is probably best known for creating Hellboy. Bill Mantlo is probably best known for creating Rocket Raccoon. At least until Woodgod gets a Netflix series.
(In fairness to Bill Mantlo, I should also point out that the trailer for the upcoming Cloak & Dagger series looks pretty good. We’ll cover Cloak & Dagger another day.)
This collection contains all 4 issues, plus a bunch of other Rocket and Groot stories.
