    In my review of Groot last month, I docked this series because it felt like it had retread Skottie Young's Rocket Raccoon, by having one of these BFFs race through space to rescue the other. But having read this second issue of Groot, I have to take it all back - Loveness and Kesinger absolutely improve on Young's formula, not just relying on stylish art but pure characterization to propel the story. By the end of this issue, you know why Groot and Rocket are going to be inseparable - would you give up the one person who understood you? This epic bromance is as charming as it gets, and one that makes Groot a truly surprising success. Read Full Review

    Many hardcore Marvel fans might not enjoy the undoubtable fluffiness of this series, but it is a good series regardless. It still has action and subtle violence, but for the most part, it is just a cute story to follow about a tree named Groot. Read Full Review

    Writer Jeff Loveness writes such a great stand alone story that walks us through the first meeting between Groot and Rocket. It'd be a a shame if more fans of the Guardians of the Galaxy aren't reading this title as this is such a memorable moment, and it's done so well. Loveness is able to write such a great story without a whole lot of dialogue, and the possibilities of future stories using creative ways to push the dialogue presents a lot of opportunity. If you're a fan of the Guardians of the Galaxy but we're avoiding this book, don't. Two issues in and this may be my favorite book in the Guardians family of titles, and unlike Groot, that's saying a lot! Read Full Review

    The result is whimsically entertaining as the lighthearted books are supposed to be, but equally this series puts the heart back into lighthearted by building surprising depth out of a character who most consider to be two dimensional because of his lack of vocabulary and strange background. The series proves once again that Groot is a perfect choice for his own series, and while the series started out with the idea of Groot hitchhiking to Earth, it seems as though it doesn't really matter that he might never get there.

    Kesinger dominates facial expressions. The characters don't need to speak because their faces say it all. The reader also observes more interesting character designs from the other aliens Groot encounters, and Kesinger plays around with colour a bit, which is always fun. Read Full Review

    As with issue #1, the writing is plenty humorous and entertaining, just not possessed of a great amount of depth. Read Full Review
