Dark Horse Comics has announced it is bringing Rocket Robinson and the Pharaoh’s Fortune back to print in May 2018.

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 feels a lot like Tintin, and if it is half the fun that the trailer makes the book out to be, then I know a couple of kids (and a couple of adults) in the Major Spoilers HQ that are gonna love this book when it arrive on May 30, 2018.

    I picked up this and its sequel at the SPX last year, and it was a solid read. It doesn’t have quite the pep of Tintin, but that’s quite a high standard to hold it to. What it does have is an engaging story with well considered characters and art that gives a good sense of setting. I’d give it 3 1/2 slices of meatloaf, 4 if period adventure is your thing.
