Dark Horse Comics brings back into print writer and artist Sean O’Neill’s graphic novel adventure for kids, Rocket Robinson and the Pharaoh’s Fortune. Successfully funded as a Kickstarter in 2013, Rocket Robinson is described as Indiana Jones meets Tintin and offers action-packed historical fiction perfect for middle-grade readers.
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 dreamed.
Rocket Robinson and the Pharaoh’s Fortune is on sale May 30, 2018.
