Saturday (7/19) is Space Exploration Day, which, if you ask me, coincides perfectly with the 10th anniversary of Brewster Rockit this month!
Brewster Rockit combines a few of my very favorite things.
Space: Since childhood, I’ve been fascinated with outer space. I get lost in the beauty of the moon and the stars, though the unknowns of outer space terrify me. Situated in space, Brewster Rockit is right up my alley.
Pop Culture: There’s no doubt that you’ll catch me reading the timeless Calvin and Hobbes, relating to For Better or For Worse and admiring Peanuts. But, at the same time, I really enjoy comics that keep up with current events and allow timely topics to seep in. While you won’t find current events in every Brewster Rockit strip, there’s certainly no shortage of well-timed jokes.
Alluring Art: Truth be told, when it comes to comics, I’m in it for the punch line. I look for the laugh first, and then notice the artwork. With Brewster Rockit, it was quite the opposite. I fell in love with the artwork before the storyline. I could spend hours studying the intricate drawings and details in Brewster Rockit.
Seriously, just look at those stars and tell me that’s not beautiful.
Happy 10th birthday, Brewster Rockit! Time travel back to the very first strip here.
