After a successful kickstarter campaign in 2013, Sean O’Neill brought kids from middle school to nineth grade a cross between Indiana Jones & Tintin with his historical fiction graphic novel Rocket Robinson! As of this month, Dark Horse has announced that Rocket Robinson and the Pharoah’s Fortune is returning to print!
To quote the press release: “In 1933, the Egyptian capital of Cairo is a buzzing hive of treasure-hunters, thrill-seekers, and adventurers, but to 12-year-old Ronald “Rocket” Robinson, it’s just another sticker on his well-worn suitcase. The only son of an American diplomat, Rocket travels from city to city with his monkey Screech, never staying in one place long enough to call it home, but when Rocket finds a strange note written in Egyptian hieroglyphs, he stumbles into an adventure more incredible than anything he’s ever dreamt of.”
This mummified, thrilling adventure is available for preorder through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and local comic shops and will be swinging into action May 30th 2018.
