When I first saw the Rocket Raccoon and Groot toys at Toy Fair back in February—or maybe earlier when I first saw the Guardians of the Galaxy footage—I was pretty sure that they would become, to use a banned word, “iconic” but I had no idea they’d be embraced as part of the pop culture dictionary so quickly, as shown by The New Yorker’s Daily Cartoon by Benjamin Schwartz.
I hope Bill Mantlo is smiling somewhere.
well, heidi, bill mantlo is still alive, so i’m guessing that “somewhere” is in NJ:)
Wow, that cartoon won’t be dated in less than a week.
It’s a daily comic. I don’t think it’s meant to be evergreen.
Is it designed to be funny?
Oh lol, i saw this on Reddit earlier .
