I’m really torn with how many stars I want to give.
On the one hand, I just loved it. Rocket is adorable. His misadventures are so amusing. He gets himself into more trouble than he makes. What’s not to love about a smartass little furball?
On the other hand, I didn’t fully love it. The stories are too quick. I feel like there should have been more to the story line, or more as far as other stories added (like Volume 1’s addition of a story from Groot’s comic books). I was left feeling like I needed so much more.
I will say I loved the crossover of Rocket with the Avengers…in the far, far distant future. Old Stark and Cap…And I think the Clintasha crowd would be pleased because in one of the images, there seems to be Natasha Romanov with two younglings who are carrying bows & arrows and wearing Hawkeye’s violet color…
You be the judge.
I enjoyed the continuation of the MAIN STORY: Rocket having to deal with all of his old conquests. That cheeky racoon. And I did, so very much, enjoy the illustrations, which is what graphic novels are all about, IMO. The best part was the additional variant covers and art in the back of the book.
Overall, I think four stars is about right. (Three for number of stories, Five for art and The Avengers) It wasn’t the love at first volume continuing for me, but it was good.
