Right in time for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie, Marvel Comics has announced that Rocket Raccoon will get his own comic book by Skottie Young, who will be on both writing and art chores.

"I like any of the humorous characters, any of the ones I can have fun with," Young told MTV. "And around this time Guardians of the Galaxy was getting restarted, so I said if there was any of way of doing some sort of Rocket Raccoon story that would be fun too!"

"Even though it was just a sliver of Rocket [in the trailer], I couldn't wait to work on this guy even more," Young continued. "I think it's going to have a connection to that nostalgic feeling for Looney Tunes, that old animated flavor where everything wasn't squeaky clean, you know? Daffy Duck would get his bill blasted off with double barrel shotguns... That's what I grew up watching, and being able to play around with that in this hyper-superhero intergalactic universe will be a lot of fun."

Groot is also to be featured in the book, and it's learned former editor Stephen Wacker, who was behind the Nova and Guardians of the Galaxy relaunches, was initially behind Rocket Raccoon as well and nixed Groot being in the title.

The new Rocket Raccoon hits in July.
