Rocket Girl, for whatever reason, hasn’t even been on my radar (forgive that bad pun, it’s Monday and my brain isn’t working yet). However I sit up and take notice when Gail Simone and Fiona Staples rave about something, and scrolling through the art for this issue…I think I’ve found a new book for my pull list. Go ahead, check out the pictures below and tell me you don’t have a similar feeling. Dare ya.
HIGHLY ANTICIPATED ROCKET GIRL #6
PREVIEW PAGES REVEALED
An all-new story arc begins for the hit time-traveling series
“Clever premise, charming scenario, kickass girl hero, snappy script, and luscious, expressive art. I need this. You need this. Everyone needs this.” —Gail Simone
“A time-travelling teen police force is the stuff my dreams are made of—thank you for making them come true, Rocket Girl.” —Fiona Staples
Bestselling writer Brandon Montclare (Halloween Eve) and Eisner Award-nominated artist Amy Reeder (Batwoman, Madame Xanadu) return with the eagerly anticipated new story arc of their bestselling time-traveling adventure series in ROCKET GIRL #6. Image Comics is pleased to reveal early preview pages from the forthcoming issue, which will hit stores on May 6th.
In ROCKET GIRL #6, time-travelling teen cop DaYoung Johannson thinks she’s closed the case—and destroyed her own world in the process. Now all she has to do is sit back in 1986 and watch the future unfold how it’s “supposed” to…but growing up ain’t easy. Unbeknownst to her, she’s not the only person from the hi-tech alternate 2014 stuck in the ‘80s. And with the keys to the future in their hands, Quintum Mechanics isn’t content to simply let time take its course.
ROCKET GIRL #6 arrives in stores this May 6th and will be available for $3.50. It can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code: MAR150510.
