    Although we do get a Rocket Raccoon/Groot back-up story it's far shorter than what was included in the first Annihilators mini-series. And that's really too bad because less Rocket Raccoon is never a good thing. Best of the week. Read Full Review

    I've liked Marvel's cosmic offerings since Annihilation, and this book is continuing the tradition of stong writing, good characters and tremendous amounts of action. I feel like the book will ramp up as issues go on, and a "main character" that isn't Cosmo needs to emerge. Read Full Review

    But forget all that noise. The real question worth asking is how the Rocket Raccoon and Groot feature shapes up. Sadly, the duo are no longer granted a full-length co-feature, but are merely relegated to back-up status. The story is definitely a lot of fun, and Timothy Green's art is stellar, but it's far too short and sweet. The one benefit to the reduced content is that the cover price has been adjusted accordingly. Hopefully that and the presence of the Avengers will be enough to bolster the readership for a series that sorely deserves it. Read Full Review

    As with the last mini-series, “Earthfall” also features a Rocket Raccoon back-up feature, though now reduced to 5 pages of tightly told frivolity. Unlike the main feature, Abnett and Lanning capture the perfect tone for the characters, and are backed up by the appropriate artist in Timothy Green II, whose expressive illustrations have a cartoonish nature without being too cartoony about it.
