Rumor: Rocket Racoon and Groot getting their own series on Disney’s streaming service. ALL the beloved side characters getting one, eh?
Rumor time, motherfuckers! Rocket Raccoon and Groot are going to be getting their own series on Disney’s streaming service. At this point it seems as though every fucking beloved side character is getting their own series on the platform. And? Sounds good to me.
I mean. This has totally got to be playing into like, multiple fetishes. Right?
Remember that story about Rocket Raccoon‘s first issue totaling like 300,000 in orders? Well it turns out that a solid 100,000+ of them are from Loot Crate. That “Monthly Box of Dope Swag for Geeks” service that I’ve been fighting the urge to get into for a couple of months. So while that puts a different spin on the number of issues being ordered for Rocket, it also means that a whole lot of people are getting to be getting a look at the Rabid Prick. Which is neat. Yes, yes. Seed the Geek Earth with Guardians fans. Let them become acolytes. Plus! 200,000 issues ordered is still really fucking impressive.
Deep, critical thinking: Skottie Young rules. Rocket Raccoon rules. Combining them together in an orgy of rabid violence and gorgeous artwork is the definition of ruling.
Hit the jump for some deets and look at the full artwork.
Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon is weird. Not at all what I’d picture, want, or cast. But hey whatever it is more Guardians material to sci-wank over.
There is a Guardians of the Galaxy trailer coming down the pipe, so we should all be excited for that. However, what if we’re so excited that our nipples are leaking? Our nose is running? Well bad news — that means you’re probably dying and not actually excited. However!, if it is excitement, I have something to sate you. Some fucking GNARLY test footage featuring Groot and Rocket Raccoon opening cans. Of Dat Whup Ass.
I say goddamn yeah! The first promo image for Guardians of the Galaxy has dropped. It features the ragtag gang of space fuckers all lined up. Probably being busted for drinking too much and letting Rocket pull his furry balls out in some intergalactic cantina.
Hit the jump to peep it.
Chris Pratt rules. Andy on Parks and Rec? Wonderful. So I’m not surprised by his assessment of the characters of Guardians of the Galaxy, but I’m happy with it none the less. Dude is all about Rocket Raccoon. And why wouldn’t be? It’s a fucking gun-toting murderous raccoon.
I enjoy Bradley Cooper. His musk. Those eyes. His acting prowess. I also am learning to love Rocket Raccoon. His tail. His intellect. His capacity for murdering baddies. How well will these two entities mesh in Guardians of the Galaxy? I don’t know. But I’m eager to find out.
