Do you remember the days when you would read comics, not to catch up on your favorite character or understand how the universe is all-new and different and still the same, but to just read comics?

Cosmo says get stuck in the past with…
Rocket Girl #6
This week kicks off the second arc of Brandon Montclare & Amy Reeder’s Image series. Rocket Girl is still stranded in the past after fixing the possible future of 2014. Only it’s time travel, so, I’m guessing that there are complications in store. The first arc was a fun, energetic romp, and I’m expecting no less from the new one . . .
