    One thought on “Rocket Girl #1”

    1. An interesting concept of a teen police force patrolling future New York City; The concept is sound execution is lacking for the first issue.

    2. Wonderful new series about a time-travelling teenage cop with a rocket pack out to save the world! Oodles of fun, amazing art from Amy Reeder, Image find the sweet spot again with this great, original comic. Read the full review here!

    3. Il libro che andiamo ad analizzare oggi è uscito da pochissimo per la Bao Publishing una delle più importanti Case Editrici di fumetti d'Italia. Rocket Girl scritto da Brandon Montclair e disegnato da Amy Reeder.La protagonista Dayoung Johansson di questo cyberpunk/futuristico fumetto è davvero eccezionale, pur essendo solo un adolescente ha saputo conquistare il cuore e la mente. A un primo impatto la storia appare compatta, complicata e di sicuro impatto. Colpi di scena, azione e caos impre [...]

    4. Getting a little too obsessed with the artist, Amy Reeder. Got the drm free digital version (pdf). I've never reviewed a digital comic before.Pretty fun. Gorgeous art. The cities in in the future look great. Read it with full presentation mode in Chrome in Osx. But scrolling a whole pdf is choppy. I think I'll use Simple Comic, which only loads one page at a time.Love that opening image. Overall I wish it was less tongue and cheek there and there, and it was hard to tell what was going on in the [...]

    5. Rocket Girl vol. 1 provided by Image Comics through NetgalleyThis is the review for vol. 1, collecting issues 1-5.Rocket Girl had a bit of a rocky start for me, Dayoung was too much of a Mary Sue - admittedly, most super-heroes are, but I tend to prefer a more realistic approach even within fantasy/sci-fi.Issues 2-5 were a bit better, there were new interesting characters, so the focus wasn't solely on how amazingly awesome a 15 year old cop was.I really, really liked the artwork, and the colour [...]

    6. Wonderful start to a new series! The art and writing is great and the story seems so fun. I'm so excited to read the second one!

    7. This is the complete review as it appears at my blog dedicated to reading, writing (no 'rithmatic!), movies, & TV. Blog reviews often contain links which are not reproduced here, nor will updates or modifications to the blog review be replicated here. Graphic and children's novels reviewed on the blog will generally have some images from the book's interior, which are not reproduced here.Note that I don't really do stars. To me a novel is either worth reading or it isn't. I can't rate a nove [...]

    8. The full review can be found on The Founding Fields:thefoundingfields/2013/10/“An unexpectedly wonderful first issue. Want more!” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding FieldsI say this a lot, and it needs to be said: sometimes all you need in a comic is some good, clean fun that you can enjoy just for the hell of it, away from complex, flawed heroes and impossible situations. What I mean is that sometimes the traditional story is just as great and awesome as anything wonderfully complex. This is where R [...]

    9. It has been a while since I've read a comic book, so i forgot there you have to pay attention to everything on the page. Because it is a comic about time travel they kept going from the present to the past and I was confused because i missed the small box that stated the time. Besides that, I liked it. It is set in New York City in an alternate timeline, or reality. I get picky or anal-retentive when it comes to time travel so I'm curious as to how they explain the results in the next books. The [...]

    10. I didn't realize when I downloaded this graphic novel from NetGalley that it was the entire series. On this graphic novel is split up into 5 book but in the graphic novel I read all 5 books or "chapters" was all apart of Vol. 1 of Rocket Girl.In Rocket Girl you learn that there is a branch in the NYPD for teen police officers. Dayoung is 15 and has volunteered to go back to 1986 and stop something from happening at a company called Quantum Mechanics. Since Dayoung is from the future (2013) the [...]

    11. A teen policewoman from the future travels from 2013 back in time to 1986 in order to stop a corporation corporation on earth from inventing a device that will give them so much power and control that they're basically above the law. Basically, this comic is Terminator 2: Teen Lady Cop Version. The illustrations are great, and the depictions of 1986 are pretty on point, but I don't know that I would be interested in another volume.Also: the future has teen cops because you can't trust anyone ove [...]

    12. Three and a half stars. Definitely a packed with so much info beginning and when you add in time travel things can get confusing, but this book actually handles that pretty well. Lead character is an interesting thrust of naiveté and intent, undoing a future thanks to someone else's plans. Details reveal and unravel as the story continues and by the end I have no idea what comes next, which is pretty cool.

    13. Holy crap am I in trouble. This book looks amazing. I don't even know where it's going (it's issue number one come on!) but I'm in. There's just something about Dayoung that makes me want to know more. After I know more, I know I'm going to keep wanting more. Which remind me. Wasn't Starship Troopers a graphic novel? Why haven't I picked that up yet? Hmm

    14. Although this was recommended to me by a very dear friend, it was the same dear friend who recommended the abysmally horrible Air. So we'll see.

    15. Gorgeous colors and artwork, futuristic setting, noir-like dialogue, can't wait to read the rest in the series. The only weak part is time traveling, but I'll see where (or is it when?) they go with it before judging that part further.

    16. A great comic that combines sci-fi and detective stories in an entirely cool way. The panelling style kept me on my toes, and they use some really great time jumping techniques. It seems to end with such a finality, but I'm excited to see what happens next to this stylish group of 80s youngsters.

    17. Very cheesy and moved too fast. Not in the least bit believable. Not going to continue this series when there are so many other great ones out there.

    18. Not totally sure where the story is going yet. The art in these is fabulous, this series has a lot of potential.

    19. Bad ass teenage cop armed with a jet pack from the future goes back in time to save the world. Great art work. Happy I picked up the first issue. Let the adventures of Rocket Girl begin!

    20. Love the art and the protagonist. Got a bit mixed up in the twin timelines story, but it all worked out in the end

    21. This was a great start to what I hope to be a fun series. The writer did a great job of setting up a world I very much want to know more about. I really need to know why all the teenagers are cops!

    22. Really enjoyable! It really should be 3.5 stars; not quite enough there for me to bump it up to 4, but if the friend who loaned it to me handed me volume 2 I'd definitely read it.
