In Review: Groot #1

Groot #1 is quite simply a great book, which is fun as hell and a nice refreshing read.

From Marvel Comics and the creative team of Jeff Loveness (writer) and Brian Kesinger (artist), Groot #1 is the first time everyone’s favorite Guardian of the Galaxy and living sentient tree, Groot, has been featured in his very own comic book!

But much more important than that, Groot #1 is quite simply a great book, which is fun as hell and a nice refreshing read. The book really not only has fun with Groot and his best pal Rocket Racoon, but it is also able to capture the spirit of Groot’s gentle side, along with his warrior’s spirit!

The story is in and of itself light hearted, yet is still interesting, with a good mix of humor and plausible Guardians of the Galaxy storyline. Rocket Racoon is just as snarly and grumpy as he always is, yet somehow his friend Groot always has a way of tempering him.

This book is easily one that any collector should pick up and is also one which a fan of either the Guardians of the Galaxy or just Groot and Rocket Racoon will likely also enjoy. So definitely visit a planet with a good comic shop as soon as you can and pick up your copy of Groot #1!
