Hilly Rose

 HILR   (Astro, 1995-1997)

ô and ©1995 B.C. Boyer

Hilly is an investigative reporter for Earthís Rocket Times. She had been given the job by her father, Steeltrap Rose, as a means of keeping her busy and close to home. Steeltrap is of the opinion that Hilly could never make it as a reporter on her own, since he thinks her too young and naÔve for serious sleuthing. This makes it all the more ironic when Hilly stumbles onto a story involving corruption and murder-for-hire which winds up pointing back to her own father.

Hilly Rose is a wonderful mix of space fantasy and quick humor, propelled by the wonderful writing of creator B.C. Boyer. The characters in the series seem to be aware of their own cartoon existence, and acknowledge it with a sly wink to the reader. The characters poke fun at everything from comic book storytelling conventions to the art styles in which they are themselves drawn. Boyer even manages to slip in running gags from sources such as TVís Seinfeld.
