DaYoung Johansson, a 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.”

Image Comics brings parallel-Earth adventure in RETCON, this September

Writer Matt Nixon (Wolverine) and artist Toby Cypress (Rodd, Racer, Blue Estate) will team up for an all-new time-hopping paranormal series, Retcon, from Image Comics.

In Retcon, a group of paranormal adventurers faced with an impossible threat keep shutting down alternative timelines in order to prevent the ultimate destruction of the solar system. This is only to find themselves reinvented in a similar—albeit retconned situation—back in issue #1 on a parallel Earth, facing the same enemy.

“Artist Toby Cypress and I set out to make Retcon a ‘craft’ comic book,” said Nixon. “We took our time and made sure from layout to panel design to colors and letters—every piece fits, nothing was rushed. We made the best book that we could, and we believe it will find its audience.”

Cypress added, “Matt’s story is like David Lynch doing a few episodes of X-Files, it’s weird, over the top, and subtle all at once.”

RETCON #1 will hit stores this September 2017.
