Changing the future is hard to do. Sparks fly when DaYoung becomes Most Wanted in two different New York Cities. Police in battling timestreams - 1986 and an alternate 2013 - want to get their girl. But bringing her in is going to take a coordinated effort from a mysterious player who straddles both worlds.

"This is Amy and Brandon firing on all cylinders. I'm blown away by all the life and energy in this book (and the mind-boggling backgrounds!). I can't wait to see more of DaYoung." - ROSS CAMPBELL (GLORY, Wet Moon)

    Multiversity Comics - David Henderson Jan 3, 2014

    Ultimately, Brandon Montclare and Amy Reeder have created one of the most fun comics to come out of 2013 and it simply keeps getting better. With fun characters and dialogue, an interesting plot with a mystery to solve and action scenes that make full use of Reeder's talents, this issue has a lot going for it. If there's only one downside, it's that it has so much going for it that it can't possibly hope to fit it all in in one issue. If you're not reading “Rocket Girl”, you are missing out an a lot of fun. Read Full Review

    Its only three issues in and already Rocket Girl is gaining so much speed and momentum and it shows no signs of slowing down. The story continues to be intriguing, humorous, exciting and full of all the charm that a story set in the colorful 80's can bring you. This book is worth buying and adding to your pull list.

    "Rocket Girl" has taken off in a wonderful direction with its third issue. With clear voices, brilliant artwork, and all-around fun, this series continues to wow in a fantastic new way. Brandon Montclare and Amy Reeder are making the future here with their zany, wildly inventive series. Read Full Review

    Rocket Girl #3 is another excellent issue as the details of Dayoung being sent back in the past are revealed shedding some light on others motives but its brevity took away from its overall impact. I enjoy when a well-crafted story is built up because it can be more rewarding as events unfold but when it's unnecessarily delayed it can take away from the excitement. Rocket Girl is still very exciting so I hope next issue continues to shine light on everything that is going on. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Adam Kelly Jan 2, 2014

    Although this book started off looking promising, I was extremely disappointed with this issue. It just keeps getting more confusing rather than making more sense each issue. Hopefully it turns around next month. Read Full Review

    Despite the latest issue, I still like the series. I do have enough faith in this team to believe what theyre showing us in the flashbacks will be important, but for being so early in the series I think there is too much focus on seeding ideas for later than making the issues interesting on their own.

    The art for this series has been incredible. The precise line-work reminds me of Quitely at times. Some of the shots (thinking of DaYoung under the table) are just mindblowingly good. The overarching premise of the story is also a fun one. I do notice a few flaws here and there in the storytelling (both visual and written) where it is not clear what action just took place. I wonder if some editorial oversight would help (some Image books employ an editor, others like this one do not). But these problems are few and far between. Overall, this is one of my favorite new series.
