This Wednesday, March 7th, The Jetsons #5 hits newsstands, with the Jetsons and the rest of the planet on the brink of planet-wide destruction. But first, the family is celebrating George’s birthday, reminiscing on more pleasant times before Earth’s impending doom.
DC Comics has put their partnership with Hanna-Barbera to optimal use since acquiring the comic book publishing rights to HB’s characters, and their handling the Jetsons is no different. While the creative team of writer Jimmy Palmiotti, artist Pier Brito, colorist Alex Sinclair, and letterer Dave Sharpe retain the spirit of the original Jetsons animated series—an exasperated patriarch, a loving family, sleek, futuristic thingamabobs—the crew has also added pathos to the characters that never feel out of place in the series’ world. You can see that in our exclusive preview of The Jetsons #5!
The Jetsons #5, writer Jimmy Palmiotti, artist Pier Brito, colorist Alex Sinclair, and letterer Dave Sharpe, is on sale Wednesday, March 7th, from DC Comics.
From the official issue description:
It’s the last 48 hours of the planet Earth, as death will soon come hurtling from above. Only George Jetson and his new partner are in a position to make the ultimate sacrifice by heading off-world to stop the Jacob meteor in its deadly path!
