Rocket Raccoon and Groot in "Let Go" by Danial Carroll
PANEL ONE, WIDE
Groot sits by a small stone grave on a grassy hill. The gravestone reads, "Rocket Racoon". Around him are all the Marvel cosmic characters as well as various other anthropomorphic creatures. They all look sad.
CAPTION: The oldest tree on Earth is around 5000 years old.
PANEL TWO, WIDE
Same shot, except that Groot is on his own. The grave is partially overgrown with greenery and moss. So is Groot.
CAPTION: With such a life-span, time has a much different meaning.
PANEL THREE, WIDE
Same shot again, except the gravestone has partially decayed and crumbled.
CAPTION: Though one fact remains...
PANEL FOUR, WIDE
The grave stone has now completely crumbled and the grassy hill is no longer grassy. Groot has risen and is walking away, though still looking a little sad.
CAPTION: There comes a time when you just have to let go.
GROOT/WHISPER: I am... Groot.
