WHY WE LOVE IT: When writer/animator Yehudi Mercado (Guardians of the Galaxy: Universal Weapon; Pantalones, TX) came to us with a dysfunctional family drama about three clones running a rocket ship repair shop, we were already on board. Throw in some spaceport street-racing and a few alien gangsters—just tell us when to start our engines!

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Did we mention space racing?! With blow-your-gamma-gasket sequences from artist Bachan (Imagine Agents), this series has both action and heart. Fans of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Bravest Warriors, and Speed Racer will want to pick up a wrench and strap in for the ride.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Primo Rocket used to be the fastest speeder-racer in the galaxy, but after a crash that sealed the fate of his space-station-city home, Rio Rojo, Primo has resigned himself to life as a lowly spaceship salvage yard owner. However, his two “kids”—harvest clone Beta, and Beta’s genius girl-clone Zeta—can’t seem to keep out of trouble. When the dysfunctional family suddenly becomes the target of an intergalactic manhunt, the family has to come together to save their home.
