Jupiter Jet | Comic Book
A high-flying all-ages adventure, Jupiter Jet follows Jacky Johnson, a sixteen-year-old girl who discovers an experimental jetpack in her late father’s workshop. With her brother Chuck, Jacky takes to the skies to keep her neighborhood safe.
Jupiter Jet is a 5 issue all-ages comic book series written by DC All-Access’ Jason Inman and Top Cow Editor Ashley Victoria Robinson with art by Ben Matsuya (Midnight Massacre, Bolt Action) and will be published by Action Lab Entertainment.
Teenager Jacky Johnson discovers an experimental jetpack and with the help of her inventor brother Chuck, she becomes a modern day Robin Hood - stealing from the rich to give to the poor. But all her heroics attract the wrong kind of attention, and soon the mob and a mysterious villain is on their trail. Over the course of the series, you'll see Jacky take flight and learn a secret of her past.
Ben collaborated with Jason and Ashley on this five issue run over a course of a year when their Kickstarter project was successfully funded. They completed the first volume of the comic book in the summer of 2017 and took Jupiter Jet to Comic-Con where they sold out of their first run at their official signing.
In the following pages, Jacky goes about Olympic Heights helping the citizenry and redistributing the wealth stolen from the thieves back to the working class. When she notices the ruthless gangster Bruno Baramante heading towards her Uncle's apartment she snaps into action as Jupiter Jet (with a little help from the mechanic's son, Neil). She arrives just in time to see her Uncle and Bruno discuss a deal.
In these pages, Jacky and Chuck test their new machinery - including the mysterious gem that powers much of their equipment. Chuck's newest invention still has some kinks to work out, and... well let's just say Jacky has to save him yet again.
