Archaia, an imprint of publisher BOOM! Studios, invites you to pull on your racing gear and rev up your engines this December for the new sci-fi adventure series Rocket Salvage. Creator/writer Yehudi Mercado and artist Bachan give new meaning to the term “space race” with this six-issue limited series about a disgraced former rocket racer named Primo Rocket and his clone kids as they take off across the galaxy to escape the alien gangsters targeting them.
Primo Rocket was the fastest racer in the galaxy until a crash changed his fate and that of his space-station-city home, Rio Rojo. Now, Primo is the owner of a spaceship salvage yard with his two “kids,” clones Beta and Zeta. But everything changes after they become the target of a manhunt leading them on a string of intergalactic adventures. It’s up to this dysfunctional family to stay together and, ultimately, save their home.
