For readers who have not met this daring hero yet, Dark Horse Comics is thrilled to bring writer and artist Sean O’Neill’s graphic novel adventure for kids, Rocket Robinson and the Pharaoh’s Fortune, back into print! 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.

For this older reader who loves anything to do with depictions of Ancient Egypt, I’m certainly going to buy this title. Trying to be aware of every release using this backdrop is tough and the news released today is particularly thrilling. Material can get buried in a short amount of time in book shops, and I’m glad some treasures are worth unearthing to shine again.
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.

Rocket Robinson and the Pharaoh’s Fortune is on sale May 30, 2018, and is available for prorder at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and your local comic shop.
