    Rocket Raccoon #9 doesn't do anything to move the mercenary duo's storyline forward, but it's a fun self-contained romp around a 'What if?' type scenario. Some of the best issues of this run so far have been these standalone tales, and I can't wait to see what others get thrown in the mix down the road. Read Full Review

    The twist near the end of the comic lessens the impact of the story a bit as it's revealed we're only seeing a simulation of one possible future of the pair. What makes the story work is Young flipping the idea that Groot keeps Rocket in line and that the raccoon's loving friend might become something far more dark and dangerous without his questionable influence. Yeah, looks like Rocket Raccoon is a good influence after all (at least for a living tree turned Kaiju monster). Worth a look. Read Full Review

    It's not a bad issue, but it's not a particularly memorable one either, the book's amusing pop culture nods not quite enough to mask a so so installment. Read Full Review

    While some characters don't set out to be heroes but become heroes nonetheless, Groot's quest to be a hero puts Rocket on a path to forge his own heroic legacy. Along the way, Young, Parker, Beaulieu and Eckleberry have fun celebrating every wacky thing about comics in one of the most consistently irreverent books on the racks today. It's not an all-ages title, but "Rocket Raccoon" #9 is certain to remind readers of the joy comic books can deliver at any age. Read Full Review
