So far enjoying Rocket Girl. I’m not sure one issue brought me to loving it, but it definitely made me interested in reading more about DaYoung Johansson and the world she came from and the world she’s going to fix.

Interesting that we’re set up with a hyper-future 2013, but that she’s going back to a NYC of 1986. Definitely a different place, even from current real world NYC.

DaYoung’s name is perhaps a little too literal for my tastes. But not all characters can have brilliant tastes. Annie Mendez probably my favorite in that she seems to automatically care about DaYoung and have the most gumption of the group. I enjoyed the slight humor to the book, which speaks volumes of just how fun Montclare and Reeder want this book to be.

I’m interested to learn more about why it’s kids in this police force and what the adults exactly do.

I feel the “past” world of 2013 needs to be tightened up. Every time there’s a flashback, I’m losing what I care about. LeShawn O’Patrick is clearly over-his-head. And Commissioner Gomez may not be adult, but it looks like he can’t be trusted 100%.

Yep, Annie continues to rule. I love her insisting to track DaYoung everywhere after seeing the news of her playing hero all over NYC while she and Ryder Storm shower. (Also yay lesbians!)

I loved DaYoung watching the news for the first time and not even knowing something like that existed.

The shadows Quintum Mechanics sure looked like Ryder… Also interesting to know that there’s some temporal paradox about the machine happening and that they sent themselves and the machine back in time. Which means someone is likely from DaYoung’s future, but hiding it very well.

Oh, poor DaYoung, she thinks that she’s saving the world, but apparently she’s just being manipulated in order to bring about the future that she wants to stop. Even though she was followed by two people I’m assuming are Chaz and Sharma. Maybe.

I’m trying not think about too hard, but my guess is that DaYoung, in a paradox, is the one who builds the Quintum machine.

I’m still digging Amy, even if it seems like someone would’ve been responsible enough to oversee a minor with the NYPD of 1986.

Okay, so I was wrong about Gomez… Even if they were all being manipulated.
