Rocket Girl Arrested Me, but There is No Cuff-Chafing

From the peeps who drug out Halloween Eve and podcornpodcast.com comes DaYoung Johansson, the titular character. In this debut issue we are introduced to DaYoung, a 15-year old time traveling cop with a jetpack, who has returned to 1986 to prevent worldwide catastrophe from the recently activated Q-Engine. That's all you get for story. Writer Brandon Montclare has created a first-person narrative that effectively uses flashback/-forward in a manner that does not pull the reader out of the story, and Amy Reeder's art is: 1) kinetic without sacrificing background, propelling the reader forward without forsaking a sense of the world around them, and 2) uses real-world proportions--vaguely reminds me of Fiona Staples: DaYoung is not drawn like a 15-year old Jim Lee character, with her uniform up her crevices and looking uncomfortably sexual. Anyway, the story and the visual elements combine in a way that I can make this proclamation: I can't wait for a studio to option this book, especially if Brandon Montclare writes the screenplay, guaranteeing that there is no way that this movie could suck... unless the budget was f*** all. All that, based on the strength of one issue. No spoilers, really. Go to your local comic store NOW and have at it.
