ROCKET GIRL RETURNS! DaYoung Johansson was prepared to live a normal life— as normal as 1986 New York City could ever be for a teenage cop from a high tech alternate reality 2014. But time travelling isn’t so simple: changes made in both the future and past are now at war, and the present is stuck in the middle.

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Garcia May 7, 2015

    "Rocket Girl" continues to be bright and full of color and life. And I think that's the most lingering element of the book. For all the mysteries and conspiracies and characters bickering with each other, I think what I take away most issue after issue is the aesthetic of it, its lively vibe. Honestly, I would be hard pressed to immediately tell you anything about the plot or motivations or time-traveling what-have-yous, but Reeder's exuberant images and style constantly lingers on after the issue is over. This might be a book that takes forever to come out, but Reeder's artwork makes it almost worth it each time. Read Full Review

    Overall, some may view this issue as a slow start to the second arc of Rocket Girl, but it's clear from the first arc that Monteclare and Reeder can weave an action-packed, meaningful story when given enough time. If this issue doesn't strike your fancy, hold on because there's a lot more to come. This creative duo has proven before they can create a cohesive story with complex characters, and I'm willing to travel a little farther with them to reach whatever destination they have planned.

    With such a long wait from last issue, this issue failed to capture me, but the art is sharp and amazingly couloured, hopefully with consistent distribution this series will be allowed to grow. Read Full Review

    Rocket Girl needs more focus on its central conflict before it can be as gripping as its beautiful art. Read Full Review

    Even though Rocket Girl #6 wasnt exactly what I was looking for in a return issue after a long break, I am still glad to see this series back. I felt that the first five issues were one of the pleasant surprises of late 2013/early 2014 in the comics world. It might be good if the upcoming issues of the series accentuated the important story elements while also serving to explore and define the characters. Additionally, it might be tricky for new readers to follow Rocket Girl #6 right off the bat, but I think its well worth picking up the first trade and then continuing with the current issues of the series.
