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, with the present stuck in the middle.

    Rocket Girl #7 is a fun and frenetic issue that reminds the reader of who Dayoung actually is: a stubborn teenager with a strong sense of right and wrong that happens to have a jetpack to fight crimes with. Montclare and Reeder work in tandem wonderfully to get this point across with perfectly teen angsty dialogue and gorgeous art to go with it. It should be interesting to see where the story goes next, with headstrong Dayoung deciding to take matters into her own hands and her compatriots in the past trying to get to the bottom of what she might have caused.

    After a seven month wait, Rocket Girl #7 is back with a tighter narrative and thematic connection between the 1986 and 2013 storylines, which is helped by Amy Reeder's color palette. Read Full Review

    Rocket Girl is filled with excitement. This girl is a jetpack of super fuel action ready to explode off the page at you. Read Full Review

    Reeder's art is exceptional, but Rocket Girl doesn't feel like it is building towards any climax. Read Full Review

    It's really difficult to remember what happened previously because these issues comes out so infrequently, it will be a lot more enjoyable to read this when it is finally collected. The artwork is always stunning, but I struggled to follow the story, it seems like everyone is pissed off at everyone else and DaYoung is in trouble for reasons that I can't remember, and I can't follow the storyline in the futures at all. This seriously needs a recap page, it's not difficult and it will help readers immensely, just do it! Trump is also shoehorned in, which makes sense since he was big in the 80s, but he quotes one of his infamous lines that he said fairly recently that doesn't make sense in the context of the scene, so his cameo falls flat...
