Initially a successfully funded Kickstarter, Rocket Girl, by Amy Reeder (Batwoman) and Brandon Montclare (Fear Itself: Fearsome Four) rockets onto the shelves this week. Jetpack piloting teenagers, an alternative future, time-crime and 1986 – Rocket girl #1 has it all.
The story is centered around DaYoung Johansson, a teenage cop from the future, who travels back in time to 1986 in order to save the world. Originally from a high-tech future, she must investigate the Quintum Mechanics megacorporation, who are accused of crimes against time. Although, with each clue she pieces together brings her one step closer to finding out the truth about the alternate future she comes from – that shouldn’t even exist. Glimpses of this alternative future will be shown throughout the narrative, showing off the jetpacks, lasers and teenage cops.
Planned to be a ongoing series, Rocket Girl’s first 5 issues will introduce readers to all the concepts and the diverse cast of characters in a self-contained story.
Rocket Girl should appeal to teenage and adult audiences, especially if they are fans of science-fiction, the mid-80s or teenage girls who use jetpacks.
Rocket Girl is published through Image Comics and is available from 9th of October in all good comic book stores and digitally.
Take a look at the cover as well as a five-page preview of Rocket Girl #1.
