Double-sized final issue, 44 pages of story! War descends on Rio Rojo. With robot Republic of Galaxy warriors filling the skies and monster Galactic Republic guards infesting the streets, the Rockets are in the fight of their life. Zeta must turn the tide and use her powers to end this thing once and for all.
Behind the wheel of a salvage space hauler, on the run from an armada of robot religious zealots, and catering to the whims of a wild, mad scientist alien, the Rockets are in for a lot more than they bargained for. Luckily, if life has taught them anything, it is that nothing good ever comes easy.
When Primo Rocket finds out the alien and robot federations are gunning after him in search of a long-lost mythical weapon, he has no choice but to rope his family into an adventure across the galaxy to find the alien responsible. Too bad that alien is locked away in the most dangerous and impenetrable Kaijer Prison Planet known to man!
WHY BOOM! LOVES IT: When writer/animator Yehudi Mercado (GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: UNIVERSAL WEAPON; PANTALONES, TX) came to us with a dysfunctional family drama about three clones running a rocket ship repair shop, we were already on board. Throw in some spaceport street-racing and a few alien gangsters--just tell us when to start our engines! WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Did we mention space racing?! With blow-your-gamma-gasket sequences from artist Bachan (IMAGINE AGENTS), this series has both action and heart. Fans of STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS, BRAVEST WARRIORS, and SPEED RACER will want to pick up a wrench and strap in for the ride. WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Primo Rocket used to be the fastest speeder-racer in the galaxy, but after a crash that sealed the fate of his space-station-city home, Rio Rojo, Primo has resigned himself to life as a lowly spaceship salvage yard owner. However, his two “kids”--harvest clone Beta, and Beta’s genius girl-clone Zeta--can’t seem to keep out of trouble. When the dysfunctional family suddenly becomes the target of an intergalactic manhunt, the family has to come together to save their home.
