Sorry. No idea who the main character is or book he was from. A fan at Lille provided me with a Marvel comic and asked me to draw the tree guy. I couldn't resist adding his little racoon friend. Please let me know who this is so I can tag this post properly.

It's Rocket Racoon and Groot. Nice stuff.ReplyDelete
I first read Rocket Racoon when it was the back-up strip in Marvel UK's Transformers. My first introduction to Mike Mignola. Lovely stuff. Didn't know who the tree guy was, though.ReplyDelete
Yeah, both characters are mainstays in Dan Abnett's Guardians of the Galaxy series. Still got the original Rocket Racoon mini-series kicking about in my garage or loft somewhere, Think Bill Mantlo and Mike Mignola introduced him in their Hulk run before doing the mini-series.ReplyDelete
Really nice 'sketch' - especially for characters you don't know.
They've been riding high in the Guardians of the Galaxy series by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning. After that series was cancelled it was announced the two would be appearing in their own mini-series, although it will now be a double header with "Rocket Raccoon and Groot" in one big fat comic with The Annihilators. If you like big mad sci-fi it is well worth catching up with the series and characters, Annihilation is a good starting point.ReplyDelete
