Rocket Robinson & Pharoah's Fortune Volume 1 GN
Meet Ronald "Rocket" Robinson. He's what you might call an adventurer. A kid who probably wishes he could be Indiana Jones. Not that he would know who Indiana Jones is because this story takes place before World War II. Ronald, however, makes his home in 1933 Cairo, Egypt. This setting does bring to mind the adventures of Indiana Jones because it was in Cairo, Egypt that the first Raiders of the Lost Ark movie unfolded. Ronald is about to find he's going to have just as much trouble as Indy, because he's also surrounded by a buzzing hive of treasure-hunters, thrill-seekers, and possibly...murderers. With his companion monkey Screech by his side, Ronald "Rocket" Robinson will soon see if he's cut out for the life of an adventurer as he's about to stumble into an mystery more incredible than anything he's ever dreamt of. Look for Rocket Robinson & Pharoah's Fortune Volume 1 GN (JAN180136) from Dark Horse Comics in the January issue of PREVIEWS!
Skylanders: Spyro & Friends Fighting Back
Does the name Ron Marz ring a bell? It should. Ron has been writing comic books for decades. He knows how to keep your attention. He's written stories for everything from DC Vs. Marvel, to Green Lantern, to Silver Surfer. Now he gets to work with fellow comic writer David Rodriguez to bring you a story that fans of Skylanders will love! How do things go? Well, sparks fly, that's for sure. Spyro and Rollerball skirmish with a Drow battalion so someone is getting whiplash! But Spyro and Rollerball will barely have time to catch their breath because they also have to square off with a strange new team of armored enemies with incredible powers! As if things weren't already complicated because this book contains the conclusion of "Mirror, Mirror" Part 3, Spyro and Kaos also have to try to reverse their mind-swap!
