HERE COMES THE SKATER!
ICICLE's found herself a new best friend! Her name's Jimi Tucker, she's a research scientist at Caltech's Jet Propulsion
Laboratory, and she's also an old friend of Icicle's big brother, Icestar.
But Jimi has a secret, and it has
something do to with a certain green-haired speed-skating troublemaker who's lately been leading the police
on a merry chase. Don't want to miss the debut of the newest star in our pantheon of Champions, the irrepressible SKATER,
by Dennis Mallonee, Andrew Pepoy, and Jeff Brennan.

AND STARTING IN 2018!
Brand-new adventures of the Skater begin in the ninth issue of Icicle's very own comics magazine, with story by
Dennis Mallonee, artwork by Andrew Pepoy.
Somebody's blown a hole in the wall of the First Burbank Bank. But nobody heard the explosion.
And even more puzzling: a quick investigation reveals that nothing's been stolen. So what are the police to do?
Obviously, it's time to get advice from Caltech's quirky physicist, Doctor Jimi Tucker and her crack team of research assistants!
