This May, just in time for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 to hit theaters, Marvel Comics is launching a brand new look at the unique little fur-ball.
The comic, simply titled Rocket, comes from the writer/artist team of Al Ewing and Adam Gorham. The new book is being described as a “hard-boiled crime” book with Rocket leading the pack as “Daniel Ocean with a penchant for blasting first.”
While no mention was given to the new team seen behind him or the absence of the rest of the Guardians, the creative team teased crazy heists, lots of conflict, and — very uncharacteristic of Rocket — plenty of heart.
Look for the book wherever comics are sold this May and catch Rocket in the theater in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, in theaters May 5, 2017
