Follows the life and adventures of Rocketo Garrison, world-famous explorer and mapmaker. Set 2,000 years into a mythical future, the world as we know it has been destroyed in a catastrophe and its magnetic field distorted. The only way for mankind to now navigate through the broken land masses is by the unique abilities of the Mappers, a genetically engineered group of men and women who act as human compasses.
Rocketo started off with some low sales making early issues hard to track down. Issue 1 sold 2,251 copies, issue 3 just 1,875 copies and issue 4 2,078 copies. Following the collapse of Speakeasy Comics in 2006, the series was moved to Image Comics where increased production allowed sales to also increase. Issues #5 & 6 were never published individually, and only within the first reprint collection.
