PORTLAND, OR, 06/19/2017 — Writer Brandon Montclare (Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur) and artist Amy Reeder (Madame Xanadu, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur) will release the eagerly anticipated eighth issue of their ongoing series ROCKET GIRL this August.
DaYoung Johansson, teen cop from the future, discovered first-hand that time travel is anything but simple. Now, she’s relaunching her investigation into crimes against time as her adventures in the '80s start to pick up.
“I know what's going to happen, and I'm still amazingly excited to see ROCKET GIRL return!” said Montclare. “This comic is as much fun for me to read as it is to make. Amy and I have a pile of issues ready for the fans—can't wait to blow you all away.”
“I don't mean to sound alarmist, but everything we've done so far with ROCKET GIRL has been leading up to these next few, completed issues,” said Reeder. “Major things are about to happen! And I for one wouldn't want to hear the gossip second-hand at the water cooler.”
ROCKET GIRL #8 (Diamond code: JUN170695) hits comic book stores Wednesday, August 2nd. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, July 10th.
