First look at Skottie Young’s Rocket Raccoon interiors

Rocket_Raccoon_1_CoverAs announced yesterday, Skottie Young, Eisner winning artist, will be writing and drawing a ROCKET RACCOON ongoing series in July. And here’s some interior pages. Also of note: David Peterson (Mouse Guard) will be supplying a variant cover. Sold and sold.

As defenders of the cosmos go, Rocket Raccoon has faced his fair share of galactic battles. He’s been a hero to the weak, a champion of the good, a protector to the innocent, and  a heartthrob to many intergalactic species across the cosmos. But is he ready to be a raccoon on the run?!

Rocket’s high-flying life of adventure and heroism may soon be a thing of the past when he becomes framed for something he didn’t do! And the authorities aren’t the only ones hot on his TAIL! (Yeah, we went there.) “I figure that a guy like Rocket, with his attitude, has swindled his way over many planets and charmed many ladies,” says writer/artist Skottie Young. “He’s racked up a malitia of ex-girlfriends I’m dubbing the Exterminators. They’re all fed up and they’ve decided it’s time they dish out some payback on his furry little tail.”

With his pal Groot at his side, Rocket will have to blast his way out of trouble (and blast his way into some) if he wants to clear his name. Along the way he’ll tussle with some of the fiercest creatures in the known galaxy! But they’re about to bite off more than they can chew if they think they can go toe-to-paw against the shortest Guardian with the biggest gun!

  1. Sold and sold again. Skottie is in his zone here. Unleashed and in control. This is what I would love to see more from Marvel. Don’t get me wrong, the core line up of A-list super hero genre titles is still their bread and butter, but they can afford let a few titles, like this, have some rip roaring fun.

    I admit, if not for the movie this would probably never happen. But I’m not gonna let cynicism get in the way of supporting this.

    Sold! Can’t Wait!

  3. I dunno, I’d rather see something interesting with Rocket (hell, with anyone) in the main GotG book before we go spinning it off.

  4. Pedro Bouça says:

    Not much hope for that, Zach. It’s Bendis. At least on RR’s solo book we can hope for something!
