Rocket Girl 4 (March 2014)

Rocket Girl #4
I had been a little worried about Rocket Girl but everything is back on track this issue. There’s the 1986 scientists realizing they’re Cyberdyne, there’s the future detectives realizing they don’t know what’s going to happen, there’s Rocket Girl on the run from guys from the future.

Those bad guys from the future turn out to be about the only problem with the comic. Montclare goes for a plot connection he really doesn’t need. The way he paces the series, it’ll be quite a while before he gets to it and it’s not good enough to wait on.

Otherwise though, all of the plot moves are fantastic. There’s some great dialogue from the scientists and the future scenes go further in making the teen police department more believable. All they needed was to get boozed up, apparently.

Reeder’s art for the issue is phenomenal. The action scenes, settings, just phenomenal.
