So this might be why Marvel is lacking so many sales?
Rocket Raccoon (2016-) #5 - Matthew Rosenberg,Jorge Coelho,David Nakayama

Or it might be a symptom of the things that are losing them money.   I read an article earlier about the burnout - series being rebooted, too many larger events and/or higher priced issues ($5-%10 for oversized issues depending on size), and a glut of series (six Avengers titles, coming up on that for Guardians of the Galaxy, up to six X-Men titles planned post their latest huge event, and a new event coming up that's rebooting series - again.)   Beside the fact that this, and the next Rocket series, won't have Groot, I'll have to deal with two issues of Guardians a month, possibly Star-Lord, and Rocket Raccoon - the newest Rocket series - as well as I Am Groot.   And possibly others.  I'm just so burnt out trying to keep track of all the series, how many they are, when they'll reboot, and on and on.  I'll probably get these on sale as digital versions or even as graphic novels eventually.  (Again, most likely digital.)

 

I'm disappointed not only that this series is ending after five issues, stopping then starting yet another Rocket series, but the writer who is currently ruining Royals for me will end up ruining Rocket, too.   Ugh.   (Rocket's next adventure?  I'll take from the library if I read it at all.)

 

This was a fun story, a good wrap up, and would have gotten five stars if not for the fact that I'm just hugely disappointed that Marvel keeps cancelling the series I like to reboot them less then a couple years in.   Just stop, focus on the characters and less on the huge ass events I don't want, and let a series stand for more than two.   Fucking.   Years.

Nope, can't do it
Guardians of the Galaxy (2015-) #19 - Brian Bendis,Valerio Schiti,Arthur Adams

Even with Gerry Duggan writing the next GotG series, I'm burnt out.   I will most likely pick up the series on sale at some point - digitally and issues or volume one - but I will most likely have to read Rocket and I Am Groot to get it all.   But mostly, I'm tired of series that last twenty issues then get rebooted.   Why?   I know that DC just did this, bt they also rebooted the world in a way that makes me think they are in this for the long haul.   

 

I'm tired of having to re-up my subscriptions all the time.   I'm tired of them dragging teams like this so there are six character titles and a main title.   (And the GotG is going to ship twice a month, from what I understand, so eight bucks each month.   Royals and Black Bolt may be the same, but, ugh, my Inhumans addiction!   Plus that's only two titles, as I have yet to decide if I'll indulge in Secret Warriors. I may have to because having Moon Girl, Devil Dinosaur - who is going to do dinosaur stuff according to the people who are creating this - and Ms. Marvel in the same title may prove too tempting for me!)

 

I'm dropping all things Guardians for the time being.   And I may indulge from time to time: the new movie, the coloring book, but I need to bow out for now.  I may drop Deadpool if Duggan drops that, and I don't like the new writer.   I'm just really worried about Secret Empire now that all this is starting.   I'd much prefer longer lasting series, but... it's not happening.

Rocket jailed
Rocket Raccoon (2016-) #4 - Matthew Rosenberg,Jorge Coelho,David Nakayama

Not only is  he stranded on Earth, he's now jailed and sent to a reservation of aliens - and one Inhuman that no one listens to when she says she isn't an alien.  

 

Rocket decides this planet sucks, and he's going to get off, even if he has to put in a little effort of his own - and maybe, just maybe, he'll get to blow some shit up, too.   That'll cheer him up!  

 

I found this book to be a little more humorous and warm than the other three, so I enjoyed it a bit more.   Still disappointed Groot hasn't shown up, though; even if the other Guardians are broken up with Rocket, I'd have expected Groot to stay with Rocket!

Angela looks for Sera
Guardians of the Galaxy (2015-) #18 - Brian Bendis,Valerio Schiti,Arthur Adams

Grounded on Earth, Angela breaks into Sera's apartment, only to find a chubby dude living there.   He doesn't know who Sera was, nor does he have anything that she might have left there.   

 

This is bittersweet: a reminder that they've been parted, and a reminder of what they'll do to find each other when they've been forcibly parted in the past. 

 

Beautiful, painful, hopeful, and strong, this was all I expected from Angela herself, and more.   One of my favorite of the Grounded stories, and I hope we see more from both Sera and Angela soon!

Everything comes together perfectly
Deadpool: Too Soon? Infinite Comic #8 (of 8) - Joshua Corin

The how, the why, and the fix all in this comic.   It's a massacre, and then somehow it's all alright.   I'm not quite sure I buy how easy it is, but I've had so much fun that even that being 'eh' about that aspect can't get me down about this enough to knock off even half a star.   I kind of knew halfway through this issue that it would be a little out there: either this wouldn't be fixed, and it would be completely AU, or it would be fixed and I'd probably side-eye it. 

 

Hilarious, and almost too trippy to be real, this series has been wonderful!  I've been anxious the past couple of days - most likely eager to get started with school has translated into nervousness about settling in - and this made me laugh and forget that all.   Lovely!
