After battling deadly space piranhas in Sector 7 of theCosmos, Rocket and Groot crash-land on a planet made entirely of strip malls!There are dry cleaners, nail salons, 99 cent stores, 98 cent stores, chain restaurants,and maniacal robots bent on customer service. Sounds like paradise, right? Wrong. It doesn't take long for Rocket to discover that the place is infestedwith raccoon-eating toilets! That's right. KILLER toilets! Badly injured fromthe piranha fight, the totally-butt-kicking-duo have no ship, no guns, nomoney, no food, no water . . . BUT . . they have each other. Oh, and Veronica,the totally awesome super-intelligent tape dispenser!! (She told us to saythat).
Told through the eyes of Rocket, STRANDED ON PLANET STRIPMALL features simple black-and-white drawings throughout, as Rocket uses aspace stylus to express his adventures, visually, while Veronica, their spacerecording companion, lays out the adventure in text! Granted, the drawings aredone by a space Raccoon with a bad attitude, but what would happen if he gaveGroot a shot to draw an adventure they had been on? What would we get? We'llfind out in the final chapter!
