The 30th anniversary of the Rocketeer continues! Cliff finds himself the target of a scheme to "liberate" the jetpack from him as a pair villains plot to stop him from interfering with their nefarious plans. Meanwhile, Cliff's secret identity, rather precarious at the best of times, is discovered by someone outside of his immediate circle.

    Samnee is great, as usual. His style goes with this book like peanut butter goes with jelly. Hopefully, the villain's master plan goes into full effect, because I can't wait to see it. Surely it can't work? It has to fail. Either way, Samnee drawing it means it'll look great. The Rocketeer hasn't looked this good since his original outing with Dave Stevens at the helm. That is, quite possibly, the highest praise I can give a comic book artist. It's worth mentioning that Jordie Bellaire's color work really looks brilliant as well. This book is the complete package. It's got it all. Read Full Review

    "Rocketeer: Cargo of Doom" is keeping a delicate balancing act between the man in the flight suit and the hero that soars into danger at first blush. Though the story treads into unbelievable territory, it does so with the same gusto that our hero exhibits when launching himself into the sky. For that reason, and for another opportunity to see Samnee's perfect fit, you shouldn't miss this. Read Full Review

    As for me, I'm willing to give the idea a go so far. Its silly and outright bizarre, but if you embrace it fully it also quite cool. Depending on how they treat this in the next issues, it might be able to save itself. Read Full Review

    Mark Waid has written a worthy story to continue the Rocketeer legacy. I hope that this mini-series does well and proves that the often rumor reboot of the film franchise would be a great idea. Read Full Review
