Dark Horse Comics has unveiled plans to bring writer-artist Sean O’Neill’s graphic novel adventure for kids, Rocket Robinson and the Pharaoh’s Fortune, back into print. Rocket Robinson, funded via Kickstarter in 2013, is described as “Indiana Jones meets Tintin.” This action-packed historical fiction is perfect for middle-grade readers.
It’s 1933 and the Egyptian capital of Cairo is buzzing with treasure hunters, thrill seekers, and adventurers. However for 12-year-old Ronald “Rocket” Robinson and his monkey Screech, it's just another sticker on his well-worn suitcase. As the only son of an American diplomat, Rocket travels from city to city, never staying in one place long enough to call it home. After finding a strange note written in Egyptian hieroglyphs, Rocket stumbles into an adventure more incredible than anything he’s ever dreamt of.
Rocket Robinson and the Pharaoh’s Fortune is on sale May 30, 2018, and is available for preorder at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and your local comic shop.
