Great issue regarding the storyline. Sets up some really cool happenings hopefully in the future. Hilarious as usual. Artwork seemed a little rushed in spots with little attention to detail so it is not a 10/10. Still, this series is getting stronger as it continues.

Completely adorable, but did not blow me away. I can see them having a lot of fun in the future though. Reoccurring jokes were not good- my only complaint. But the cuteness got me. Will be adding to my pull list and looking forward to the next issue. Visually vibrant and expressive.

Pleasantly surprised by this first issue. It is very reminiscent of Rocket Racoon and I like that. There were some flow problems in the first couple pages and when I read the preview because Rocket is trying to explain what Groot is thinking, but it gets more relaxed and the flow begins with more people introduced as the story progresses. He does show a lot of emotion for a tree. I am looking forw more

Better than expected. It took me a few pages in to get used to his speaking, but I ended up really falling for his earnest nature and willingness to protect a friend. I do see this coming back to create some problems in the future of course. Artwork was interesting too with the detail they put into the main characters, but more easy approach to everyone else. I have been searching for a DC comic t more

Every single "joke" (if you can call them that) fell completely flat. I had high hopes for Bat-mite and expected sillier humor and funnier jokes. He just came off as annoying and I did not laugh even once. The villains had more humor and interest than the main character. I would pick up the next issue to see how it turns out, but Bat-Mite would have to be completely gone from the issue. Artwork wa more

I literally picked this up from the cover art and was not even aware it included gladiator Steve Rogers with a Trex. It was amazing and you need this in your life. Funny and absurd - I think Secret Wars allowed for that in this case. 1 thing I think everyone is beating to death is the Steve Rogers looking for Bucky and trying to save him and it needs to end. I'd rather see them fighting together a more

This issue seems a little sad for me! Deadpool's jokes are off this time (ie. sad and not funny), but the artwork is still great and the turn surprised me a bit. I have no idea what is coming up next issue to wrap this up, but I will be picking it up to find out.

Very funny and I liked how they started at the end seemingly and came back around.
