Meet Your New Rocket Raccoon: Giffen & Threshold's Captain K'Rot!


4596 You know once Joe Quesada and Brian Michael Bendis get their hands on any cosmic character it's all but done for.

Marvel ED mucked up DnA's Nova and Guardians of the Galaxy that sprung from Keith Giffen's Annihilation.

Quesada's currently drawing coffee cup art featuring Rocket, and Eon only knows what Bendis will do with him. Do we even bother mentioning Kid Nova by Loeb?

We may never know the real reason for DnA's stellar stuff getting axeled - Movie? Jealousy? - but at least Marvel Cosmic fans can get their fix of sorts starting in January as Giffen is doing what he did at Marvel over at DC with Threshold.

It's a new space-based book that stars the likes of Blue Beetle as well as a new Green Lantern, with a Larfleeze back-up.

But that's not all, as Threshold #3 introduces -- Captain K'Rot!

DC Comics revealed the solicit for Threshold #3 (via MTV Geek) featuring the new character.

CBN M.E. Byron Brewer e-mailed me with mention that it's the next Rocket Raccoon. Nice!

Giffen was instrumental to the Guardians of the Galaxy comic book relaunch and placing Rocket Raccoon on the team. No matter what Bendis says about how the Marvel creative movie team just happened to be thinking of a movie that happened to feature the same team which wasn't related at all to the Marvel Cosmic comic book team, Cosmic fans know better.

And with that, Rocket Raccoon we hardly knew ya.

Meet Captain K'Rot:

(Oh yeah, Starlin is also on a new DC ongoing as well)
