Meet George Jetson.
He's an overworked and underappreciated, albeit brilliant, mechanical engineer for Cosmo Spacely's corporation.


His Boy Elroy.
Who has a thing for Lake Cogswell, Spacely's business competitor's daughter.
Ahhhh, the shenanigans those two get into...

I hope there are more of these.
Very different tone than to the Jetsons I remember but, i love the way the elements and details of the original series are blended into a unique story-line.

Who knew Jimmy Palmiotti had it in him to write a poignant family drama about the approaching end of the world. The Jetsons, especially Judy, are all much smarter and well-rounded than they were in the cartoon. Jane is a super scientist tasked with trying to stop a meteorite that will soon strike the Earth. The entire family pitches into help once they becoma aware of the approaching armageddon. Pier Britto's art reminds me of Barry Kitson. He even uses a similar bright color palette found in mu ...more

I liked this story, but I'm not sure I would recommend it to anyone....

So far I've been a fan of the hanna-barbera universe. The flintstones was great, all the one shots they have released have been done pretty well. So I was excited to see what the Jetsons had to offer. The story starts off like the show does, with an intro of the family. Each family member has a project of their own to work on and these projects seem to be the main set for the story. AND THATS IT! There's no tensi

I'm not sure how I feel about this one. I loved the story, the artwork, all of it. It was surprisingly deep, parts had me balling my eyes out. I couldn't stop reading start to finish.
I just don't know how true to the original Jetsons it all was. I also haven't watched an episode of the Jetsons in over 20 years. I would definitely read more if more volumes come out.

I was pleasantly surprised by this comic. At first I was excited when I heard they were making this comic, then I saw the art. The art, in my opinion, isn't very good. I wish they had another artist drawing this book. However, I really liked the story. They don't change the characters too much from the original show and they explain why they all live in the sky. This book isn't a comedy though, it's more of a melodrama. I like what they do with Rosie the Robot. Even if you have seen all the epis ...more

Writer Jimmy Palmiotti and artist Pier Britto bring new life into an old Hanna-Barbera property. Eschewing the silliness of the cartoon, this incarnation is a serious look at a possible future where Earth is covered with water and people live in flying cities. When a strange meteor appears headed towards the Earth to kill its remaining life, it's up to brilliant scientist Jane Jetson and ace mechanical genius George Jetson to figure out how to save the day.

The entire Jetson family are fully rea

What would the Jetsons look like if it was a little more serious, and the tech felt upgraded to a realistic level given the tech we have today? This graphic novel.
The dynamic is still the same, but with a few changes...
-George still works at Spacely Sprockets, but is the only technician that understands how to work with all kinds of different tech, instead of being the tech idiot he was on the show.
- Jane, no longer that "lady of society" that she portrayed in the cartoon (her 50's

This is my second of the new DC/Hanna-Barbera mashups (the first being Wacky Raceland) and I have to say, not really expecting much, I was pleasantly surprised. If I had to chose what it was a mashup with, I'd have to say it's a bit of the Jetsons meets Lost in Space, that kind of thing.
We get a quick introduction to the characters and there are a few riffs on the classic theme song along the way. This is a more realistic take on the Jetsons, with an interesting explanation for why all of

It's a good sci-fi comic but has nothing to do with the Jetsons at all. Just like the Snagglepuss and Flintstones reimaginings. I don't really know who this is for. I'd say this is The Jetsons for adults, but since they changed so much about the core dynamics and logic and appearance of the show it's not really a commentary or expansion of the original. ( I recently rewatched the Harvey Birdman episode related to the Jetsons and that explored way more ideas and fallacies presented in the origina ...more

DC's update of Hanna-Barbera's classic cartoon characters, The Jetsons, is an enjoyable read. George is an indispensable employee of Spacely Space Rockets and Jane is a scientist for N.A.S.A who team up together to stop a world-wide extension event being brought on by an oncoming meteor.
All the characters from the classic TV cartoon including family members Elroy, Judy, robot maid Rosie, and their dog Astro.

So I recognize Jane Jetson has to have an upgrade because she's not really a character (consistent with certain mores of the times).

But George Jetson is not a brilliant workaholic. He's kind of a normal dude. He works a blue-collar button-pushing job.

I guess the whole cosmic thing generally . . . . It kind of walks away from the heart of the Jetsons, which is about George and his attempts to get off crazy things (alternating with wonder-joys of super-brilliant middle-clas

This is not The Jetsons you remember. Essentially, DC has taken the name of the family and reinvented the story. Futuristic and fun, The Jetsons also tackles more difficult subjects like global warming and the war-like nature of human beings. The dialogue is occasionally stilted, and once in awhile the expressions on the characters' faces don't seem to match their words, which led to a few incongruous moments. Otherwise, it was an enjoyable read, and I'll likely pick up more of the comics in the ...more

This was okay, an interesting take on the classic cartoon. I liked how each of the Jetsons were portrayed, and I thought the story was pretty neat - it was actually pretty exciting and gave some good explanations for why things were the way they were. I wasn't a big fan of the artwork, I don't know if it was all the skin-tight clothing or just the way it was drawn in general, but I didn't love it.

All in all, an interesting story, and a satisfying ending.

This is another of the old Hanna-Barbera cartoons being reimagined in comic form. It takes a different tone from the old cartoon and started off really well. I read this in individual comics as it came out and was disappointed in the last issue. For all the promise it was not as good an ending as I hoped. It was still fun to visit again with a cartoon of my childhood!

3.5 stars, rounded up.

It's definitely the Jetsons you remember! (Well, their names anyway. Pretty much only that.) A well-constructed family drama that explains why everyone lives in the sky, and has a potential earth-crushing disaster looming. Roles are updated and interesting. Nothing amazing but well done.

This was a very interesting read. I had some doubts about an updated Jetsons, but this was a pleasant surprise. I enjoyed the story and the art was ok. I am hoping there are more of these to read as I would like to see what the future of the world holds.

This was a pretty cute reimagining of the Jetsons with some clever interpretations of the old cartoon. Some of the artwork was a little stale but I loved revisiting their world! #24in48readathon #24in48

Having watched the Jetsons as a kid I was keen to read a new mini series about them. I wasn't disappointed. The art work and the story, was wonderful from start to finish. The story itself makes you stop and think about life and the what the future holds.

Interesting Technology and a serious spin on the cartoon. It definitely didn't end how I thought it would. Lots of questions about life after death.

As a science fiction story, it's decent. As the Jetsons? I guess it's ok. Turning Rosie into George's mother's consciousness in a robot body is... a choice, I guess.

Creative re-imagining of the Jetson's universe. I enjoyed it a lot (I am also a huge Jetson's fan from long ago). The explanation of Rosie's existence is probably one of my favorite parts.

Good take on a beloved series. Love the tone and pacing. More of a cliche story but not bad.
