    After last month's artist abortion, things are back to normal with this issue. Brad Walker does a great job of depicting some of the weirder element involved with a cosmic title. Most importantly though, Rocket Raccoon doesn't look like he's about to die of rabies anymore. I thought it was a basic rule of comic art…anthropomorphic animal heroes have to have a level of cuteness to them, something Rocket was lacking completely last month. With the return of good art, there's not much to complain about with this title, and it's only bound to get better during War of Kings. Read Full Review

    That I can jump into this series halfway through a story and still be entertained, get a strong sense of the characters, and feel compelled to read the next issue suggests that Abnett and Lanning are definitely doing something right with the book. As Jack Flag opines in this very issue, maybe this cosmic stuff isn't so bad after all. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Feb 22, 2009

    This book will get a shot in the arm from its proximity to "War of Kings" and it should. It seems to me that there isn't enough buzz for a book that features a talking raccoon, a tree with a mad-on, and the celestial Madonna. With one collected edition already available and a second on the way, readers might want to consider jumping on board with issue #11, which hits the ground running headfirst in the "War of Kings."

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Feb 19, 2009

    I don't want to give the book an Avoid It because I do love this title and stuff does happen in this issue it's just completely predictable and felt like the writers were finishing up their chores moreso than telling us some thrilling prison break adventure. Hopefully things pick up next month. Read Full Review

    It's a "Meh" issue, even with a ton of Rocket Raccoon and Groot. Read Full Review
