    3 1/2 stars I Am Groot is a miniseries written by Christopher Hasting (love him), so naturally that means I absolutely had to read it. And as a bonus: It’s focused on Groot, but even better than that! It’s Baby Groot! Need I say more?(view spoiler)[ So as a huge fan of Christopher Hasting I would just like to say that I really wanted to fall in love with this series. But the truth is, I liked Dr. McNinja and Gwenpool (which if you haven’t tried, you absolutely must!) so much more.

Need I say more?(view spoiler)[ So as a huge fan of Christopher Hasting I would just like to say that I really wanted to fall in love with this series. But the truth is, I liked Dr. McNinja and Gwenpool (which if you haven’t tried, you absolutely must!) so much more. So I think because of that I perhaps had some slightly raised expectations for this series, which probably wasn’t fair of me. As mentioned above, this is a miniseries; as such it’s only five issues long. So it’s a pretty quick read on the whole (though I read it issue by issue) and doesn’t require that much of a time sink to get into it. I’m not usually a fan of miniseries, as I prefer longer term and buildup plots, but hey, I’m willing to give anything interesting looking a try! Especially given the author and publisher (not the mention the adorable character). As you can tell by the cover, the Groot in this series is Baby Groot. This is likely due to the popular reaction to Baby Groot in the Guardians of the Galaxy movies and trailers. Which is really no surprise. The problem with Baby Groot is he’s an absolute trouble maker. He gets into everything, listens to no one (including Rocket), and sasses everybody (which is actually pretty cute, but that’s not the point). Obviously A miniature version of Groot that gets into everything is going to push some buttons…and I mean that literally. The little idiot (I say that in the most loving way possible, let me assure you) manages to eject himself from the ship and into some sort of portal, thus separating himself from the rest of the group. Not good, because if there was ever anyone in the group that could use constant adult supervision (can you count the rest of the Guardians as that? I’m going with it), it’s Baby Groot. The world that Groot gets dumped on is pretty insane, but it also reminds me of a planet we’ve seen somewhat recently in the Marvel movie verse, but more on that in a minute. The planet is covered with portals (which are represented as doors), but they’re all closed and locked. Additionally there are storms that can create time and space distortions, so needless to say you do not want to get trapped in them. Most of Groot’s time on this planet is spent making friends, fleeing enemies, and trying to find his way back home. Things can get pretty weird at times, making it sometimes a confusing read (which really is my biggest complaint about the series). So about that Marvel movie connection I mentioned; did anybody else notice the similarities between the planet Groot landed on and the planet Thor landed on? Portals/doors that can go anywhere? It’s all in control of one corrupt being (even though he’s not supposed to be the one in charge on Groot’s planet). Sound familiar? Yes, they look totally different; but remember the movies and the comics don’t actually synch up perfectly, and that they frequently reference each other in odd manners. All in all while this wasn’t my favorite Christopher Hastings series, I still fully feel that it was worth reading. And I’m totally not just saying that because I love Baby Groot (though I absolutely do). I hope Christopher Hastings continues to expand his writings to affect the Marvel comic verse, I’d be incredibly curious to see what he does to it, given a chance.(hide spoiler)]For more reviews, check out Quirky Cat's Fat Stacks

    It's no secret that Groot is one of my favourite characters from Guardians of the Galaxy and Guardians is one of my favourite series! So I've been super stoked for a series that's aaaaallll about Groot as well as curious as to how it would be done! I loved the art and the art style. It was beautifully drawn and nice and colourful, and the colour scheme fit the series nicely.....plus Groot is so freaking cute! Baby Groot is is enjoying his childhood according to himself, which means he's low-key It's no secret that Groot is one of my favourite characters from Guardians of the Galaxy and Guardians is one of my favourite series! So I've been super stoked for a series that's aaaaallll about Groot as well as curious as to how it would be done! I loved the art and the art style. It was beautifully drawn and nice and colourful, and the colour scheme fit the series nicely.....plus Groot is so freaking cute! Baby Groot is is enjoying his childhood according to himself, which means he's low-key misbehaving. He pulls the crew through a mysterious portal and ends up getting left behind and has to fend for himself on a strange new planet. There's a nice, shady Administrator in charge of everything and determined to stop Groot from returning back to where he came from and you know...generally up to no good! The whole planet has a sense of wrongness that translates from the page and the images. Groot gets himself a new oddball crew, Diplatessa, Dhamsus and Buddy! They where such an interesting group and I was curious about each of them! They fit with Groot well and I enjoyed the interactions between them all, they provided for a nice amount of comedy. A couple of the characters had to translate for Groot, obviously, but the volume went along quite well despite Groot not being able to say anything but "I am Groot". I Am Groot is fast paced, entertaining and humorous. Groot as the main character has certainly been a lot of fun and a wild ride! I'm really hoping there will be more! We get to see another, kind of creepy planet, and there's some little easter eggs thrown in for you to spot! We also get to see some fun interaction between Groot and Rocket and some more of the friendship between the two!

    I get that this might be a comic written for kids, but it sure as shit doesn’t read like a comic written for kids. The art is cool and cartoony, but the story and dialogue suck. I had to actually reread certain segments because I didn’t know what the hell was going on. No wonder Marvel’s sales are in the toilet. I’m striking out lately...can I read a Marvel issue that’s actually good, please?

    New today! (11/22)This is such a cute and fun but slightly weird story! The Guardians get stuck in a mysterious wormhole, and kid Groot gets separated from everyone, left on a far-off planet where no one can understand him. How is he ever going to find his way back?
