As promised in our earlier post about Ronan the Accuser we would be covering the key characters from Guardians of the Galaxy. This post is about the first appearance of the movies breakout star, Rocket Raccoon. His first appearance is a rare and sure to go up in value following the movies release.
Marvel Previews #7 released in the summer of 1976 is a magazine sized anthology that has a cover image of Satana drawn by Bob Larkin. The Rocket Raccoon story was written by Chris Claremont, famous for writing the X-Men comic throughout the 1980's.

Graded copies of Marvel Previews #7 have appeared for sale recently, a CGC 9.6 sold for $3,900 while a CGC 9.4 sold for $1,200. Lower grades or ungraded can be found for around a couple of hundred. This is a good issue to add to your collection, Marvel will be pushing Rocket Raccoon in the coming months. Remember there is a GOTG 2 already scheduled.
So my advice get to hunting one down and quickly.
Good Luck on Your Hunt!
