Booklist Reviews 2014 October #2

"With a complex, engaging story and beautiful artwork, this superbthrowback series is the perfect fit for teen fans of superhero comics,particularly girls eager for a realistic-looking hero." -- Booklist(Starred)A teenage cop from a high-tech future is sent back in timeto 1986 New York City. Dayoung Johansson is investigating the Quintum Mechanicsmegacorporation for crimes against time. As she pieces together the clues, shediscovers the "future" she calls home - an alternate reality version of 2014 -shouldn't exist at all!Dayoung Johansson is a 15-year-old with attitude-and a jet-pack-wearing copfrom the future! When a team of physicists at a corporate research lab switch ontheir experimental time machine in 1986, Dayoung bursts through the chamber anddemands they stop their research. Their discoveries, she claims, set off adomino effect that leads to a future ruled by dirty megacorporation QuintumMechanics, a future so bleak that she's willing to totally dismantle it. ButNYPD cops in 1986 don't take kindly to a punk kid in a jet pack, andDayoung-affectionally dubbed Rocket Girl after she performs a handful of daringrescues-quickly finds herself on the wrong side of the law. Flashbacks to thefuture (surprisingly logical) reveal, however, that she may be just a pawn inQuintum Mechanics' decades-spanning power-grab. Reeder does a stellar job ofpacking the cantilevered panels with bursts of bright, punchy color and clearlydepicted, cinematic action, and her characters are refreshingly diverse in race,gender, and body type. Dayoung herself is notably free of the perniciousoversexualization that plagues so many girl superheroes in contemporary comics.With a complex, engaging story and beautiful artwork, this superb throwbackseries is the perfect fit for teen fans of superhero comics, particularly girlseager for a realistic-looking hero.- Sarah Hunter
