    A fun, old school comic that is definitely worth your cash. In fact, if you could buy only one indie comic this week, choose this. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Oct 23, 2013

    This issue was well worth the wait. Waid presents a story that's just fun. From start to finish it's fast, full of action, and tense at times. Above all it's just fun to read. IDW has presented some stellar Rocketeer stories the past few years, but this one is definitely a highlight. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - ToriBee Oct 23, 2013

    Fans of the Rocketeer will still enjoy the issue, as some of the excitement quiets down between the months it's not easy to get back into the swing of things, but by then end it's like no time has passed at all and readers are once again pulled in by all the charm and class of all the characters.

Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Oct 22, 2013

    All in all it's not bad, but it is not great either. Its an enjoyable read but, after the long wait, its hard to dive in and get motivated over such a short series again. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Oct 29, 2013

    Waid still has a chance, if an increasingly smaller one, of redeeming the series, especially if he can get a stronger artist on his side. However, the story is quickly becoming a reminder of why the pulp genre went out of style. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Oct 24, 2013

    There was something special and fun with the first issue. The clever way that the two worlds connected was believable and made you crave for a larger connected pulp world much like the one Dynamite has created, but without them involved. This issue delivers a well-worn crossover formula that in my opinion talks down to its audience assuming that it couldn't handle anything that wasn't a tongue-in-cheek meeting of these two characters and that's the real shame here.
