    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 25, 2014

    Rocket beating down his angry exes provides quite a bit of fun as well as the comic's second ongoing story arc comes to a close with a battle royal which Rocket stumbles out of victoriously. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Oct 10, 2014

    This has been a fun read each issue, and with the end of the first storyline itll be exciting to see what Young and Beaulieu come up with next. Who is she?! Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Dan Gehen Oct 10, 2014

    Rocket Raccoon #4 may not be considered to be one of the greatest books released this week, but it earns high marks for being the most entertaining. Though the story may not have the tightly wound narrative and impact on the Marvel Universe to fully justify the $3.99 price tag, the gut-busting humor will make that an afterthought. For pure, escapist fun, readers could do a lot worse than picking up Rocket Raccoon #4. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Dennis Burns Oct 13, 2014

    While Bendis is having his own fun while writing the Guardians of the Galaxyteam book, Young seems to enjoy just having this one small (pun intended) corner of the universe to play in. The story itself is fun, frantic, and engaging, like the art, if not a bit predictable at times. Rocket has been framed in this first arc, so we know that either A) Rocket hasan evil doppelgnger, or B) someone is pretending to be like Rocket and dresses up like him, just to mess with him. I won't give away what the reality is here, but suffice to say that these tropes can get repetitive when seen so often in our funny books. Which is a shame, because I want to love this book wholeheartedly, and right now I like it but that's all. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 14, 2014

    In short? This is a fun one, full of chaos, crackin' skulls and the occasional shot to the face with a giant monkey-wrench. Rocket Raccoon #4 winds up the first arc with style while fitting together past stories and giving Rocket Raccoon more depth than I expected, and leaving the reader with a grin on their face.

    IGN - Jeff Lake Oct 8, 2014

    Thematically, it's up and down, the mid issue bait-and-switch and subsequent reversing cliffhanger leaving Rocket's emotional arc feeling slightly stunted. Young hits some poignant chords, but the narrative yo-yo proves more sneaky than satisfying. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Oct 10, 2014

    Having said that, the book remains wildly inventive and one of the most joyous on the shelves. There's also a touching moment at the end of the issue that may make you think you've got a little something in your eye, followed by a reveal of big doings for future arcs. There may have been elements that troubled me, but I'm still on board for the future. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Atlee Greene Oct 13, 2014

    During the SLAP, BANG, and KAPOW fisticuffs, Rocket catches a punch and it simply said "Nope" underneath before he starts putting the boots to his foes. I never thought I would ever find an ounce of sadness while looking at Skottie Young's imagery, but that just speaks to how he can convey a range of sentiment and individualities in a character like Rocket Raccoon. This series has been a surprise thus far and just keeps getting better with every outing. Read Full Review
