The most famous superhero duo of the Milestone Universe returns, reimagined for a new generation!

Long ago, the stranded alien known as Arnus gave up hope of returning to his home planet. Tragically, he’d also realized that his adopted home of Earth was beyond saving. Content with wasting away his long life in a human guise, Arnus was past caring…until the day a young woman named Raquel Ervin crashed into his life. Soon she convinced him to put his incredible power to work again as the heroic Icon…and to transform her into his sidekick, Rocket!
But an innocent question on Rocket’s part—"Why can’t we do something about the drugs on my corner?”—quickly set a chain of events in motion leading to the pair becoming the most hunted beings on Earth…and they’re not just being pursued by Earthlings either! 
Writer, director, and producer Reginald Hudlin (Black Panther), co-writer Leon Chills, and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite unleash a tale of power and responsibility that will stretch from the boardrooms of corporate America to the jungles of South America and the depths of deep space! If you’ve ever thought there were certain things that a superhero story just couldn’t do, it might be time to start thinking differently…
This volume collects Icon & Rocket: Season One #1-6.

About Author

Political activist Najee Ali calls Reginald Hudlin a “living legend” for his contributions to black entertainment. His work on movies like House Party, Boomerang, Bebe’s Kids, and Django Unchained, television shows like The Boondocks, Showtime at the Apollo, the Oscars and the NAACP Image Awards, and comic books like Black Panther and Spider-Man have made him, to quote cultural critic Jimi Izrael, “a modern-day Gordon Parks, a true monster in the game who totally re-did the blueprint: what some people used to call a renaissance man.”
