Skottie Young Õ Rocket Raccoon Volume 1 A Chasing Tale kindle

L Get it Tail The real killer is an imposter who seems to be one step ahead of Rocket at every turnnow it's up to our hero and his best pal Groot to find the truth With Macho Gomez and the Ex Terminators tracking him can Rocket make it out alive a Last year 2013 in the run up to the Guardians of the Galaxy movie this past summer 2014 Brian Michael Bendis was given the task of re launching the Guardians of the Galaxy comic to prep and gee up the audience in advance His Guardians series was fairly good at least to start with and did the job nicely Guardians is now a top 10 bestselling comic for Marvel AND a major hit movie To accompany the print issues Bendis wrote a limited run of four Infinite Comics – Marvel’s digital line with each one focusing on an individual character in the team Drax Gamora Groot and Rocket Star Lord had the first print issue all to himself The Ming Doyle drawn Rocket story ended with him realising he wasn’t the last of his kind as he previously thought Skottie Young picks up this strand and kicks off his Rocket and Groot solo but really duo series with the mysterious other hunting down Rocket in A Chasing Tale I’ve been a fan of Young’s art for a long time now but I wasn’t sure if he had the writing chops to pull off a title on his own steam And while he’s not as great a writer as he is an artist his Rocket series does read uite well The first issue is a blisteringly good start riffing on Luke’s rescue of Leia in A New Hope before switching to Groot in an alien WWE style wrestling match and then throwing in one action set piece after another foot chase gun fight imprisonment and multiple villains appearing It’s probably my fault for expecting that level of intensity for the rest of the story as things do slow down from then on and though it’s never boring the rest of the book never reaches those initial giddy heights Young’s art though is sensational From the splash page of Rocket and Groot’s escape from the prison planet to the space battle in the seafood Cadillac to the space fish wormhole; Young’s vision imagination and skill in producing some truly outstanding pages is breath taking Young’s ability to tell a story with just visuals is most evident in one of the two standalone issues that closes out the volume The Groot issue is Rocket’s pal telling a troop of space scouts a fireside tale but being Groot he can only say three words I Am Groot So the entire issue bar the framing is told using those three words – even the signs in the story say I Am Groot But Young’s layouts along with artist Jake Parker who draws this and the other standalone issue really sell the story so you can totally understand what’s happening from the art alone The final standalone issue is a pretty forgettable story of Cosmo hiring Rocket to help out some Transformers esue robots break free or something I suppose it has its moments Rocket complaining about never having a sidekick with any vocabulary is a cute aside and I guess fans of the AbnettLanning run will enjoy seeing Cosmo and Knowhere again Rocket is for the most part the brash and charming ladies’ er “man” the animal euivalent of Han Solo but Young does try here and there to give him a rounded personality Like in the movie an unexpectedly touching moment emerges from Rocket and we catch a glimpse of his inner self that’s at odds with his outward wild whacky and fun character that sets the overall tone of the book But mostly this volume is silly over the top actionhumour There are a couple of great issues here and I love that Marvel published that cray cray Groot story but a lot of the book is fairly ordinary scripting – maybe trying a bit too hard to be funny in places – with consistently strong art throughout It’s a fine fun comic that’s definitely worth checking out for fans of the two best Guardians which after the success of the movie is pretty much everyone 35 stars

Rocket Raccoon Volume 1 A Chasing TaleRocket Raccoon has been a hero to the weak a champion of good a heartthrob to many intergalactic femalesbut his high flying life of adventure may be a thing of the past when he's framed for murder and the authorities aren't the only one on his tai You guys really are hardcore Hey that's a pretty fly name for a group or something Bust in doors wave the four fours and be all 'we're hardcore' and you're about to be Rocket Raccoon Can someone please make the small furry thing stop talking 'war grade mech' robotYou know it's a sign of trouble when the robot seems to have the right idea for this volume Other than a half dozen or so pages early on where RR is briefly incarcerated and holding court with the new cellmates A Chasing Tale was a curiously one dimensional and drawn out affair There were a few good laughs but it was silly in a juvenile sense than actually funny Maybe the character works better as part of his usual 'Guardians' ensemble instead of having a starring role
