Old school fans of Marvel's run of comics throughout the 80s were either very excited or completely bummed out to see the inclusion of oddball character Rocket Raccoon in the Guardians of the Galaxy line-up released yesterday. We have another look at the little critch in a another, somewhat low-res photo.
About Rocket Raccoon
" Rocket Raccoon acts as the "Guardian of the Keystone Quadrant", an area of outer space sealed off from the rest of the cosmos by the so-called Galacian Wall. Rocket is captain of the starship Rack 'n' Ruin, and he and his first mate Wal Russ (a talking walrus) come from the planet Halfworld, in the Keystone Quadrant, an abandoned colony for the mentally ill where the animal companions were genetically manipulated to grant them human level intelligence and bipedal body construction for many to become caretakers of the inmates. Rocket was Halfworld's chief law officer ("ranger") who protected the colony against various threats."
