Rocky Raccoon: Danny Boy, This is a Showdown!

This drawing was inspired by the fact that I love Rocket Raccoon! Rocket Raccoon was created by Bill Mantlo and Keith Griffen in 1976 for Marvel Comics and his inspiration came from the Beetles song "Rocky Raccoon" way back in 1968. I decided to commemorate both of these facts by having the characters from the song played by characters created by Bill Mantlo! The rabbit is Dan played by Blackjack O' Hare, the lovely otter is Megil played by Lylla, and Rocky Raccoon is played by, of course, Rocket Raccoon! You can hear the song here:
