• Rocket and Groot are the two best friends that anybody ever had. And they're also amazing at killing really big alien things/saving the Galaxy!

    This particular issue may be less bold in its execution than other issues, but it's just as assured and the book remains one of the best Marvel is putting out. Read Full Review

    And so Rocket and his nonsense-speaking friend (“Brute” only communicates in bianary) head into action. The result of which, as expected, is pretty damn entertaining. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Overall, is this issue especially meaningful? Probably not. Rocket and Cosmo are even now, but I can't say that that the adventure much impact in the series. It wasn't meant to be. It feels like a type of palette cleanser, an injection of guns and silliness that serves as a tremendously enjoyable read but that I can't say blew me away. It's just fun in the special, ultra-violent way that we've come to expect from Rocket Raccoon. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Dan Gehen Dec 11, 2014

    The script is Skottie Young at his irreverent best. Though the series may be in danger of becoming rather one-note, it has worked so far as the majority of comics published today strive to tell mature stories. Young's Cosmo has hilarious broken-English that makes the four-legged telepath sound like a Bond villain. Reading it with the voice of Dug from the Pixar film Up can further enhance the reading experience. This issue also allows Rocket the opportunity to comment on his own adventures – specifically with the recurring gag of him stating that, just for once, he'd like to be paired up with someone with a semblance of a vocabulary.As much as he may want that, it's become clear that the character works best when he does the talking for two.

    Comicosity - Kelly Richards Dec 12, 2014

    Massively tongue-in-cheek and violent without being graphic, Rocket Raccoon is both fun and funny. Featuring what is possibly the best-written Rocket yet, it is easy to see how he sweet-talked all of those princesses into falling for him. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Dec 15, 2014

    "Rocket Raccoon" #6 hits the right notes to be both a successful Rocket Raccoon adventure and a fun, complete issue. While I'd prefer the comic -- especially with Parker's animated, bouncy art -- to be more closely acceptable by an all ages audience, there's simply no denying the fact that "Rocket Raccoon" is a fun book that flows in the same vain as the boisterous beast from the "Guardians of the Galaxy" feature film.
