It's a wall-to-wall adventure in a trio of Rocketeer stories in this terrific all-new special!
First, the writers of the Rocketeer film, Danny Bilson and Paul De Meo, and illustrator Adam Hughes bring us a tale featuring pioneering aviator Amelia Earhart. Second, Robert Windom (Seven Sons) and Jae Lee craft a story of the Rocketeer fighting a Japanese Zero in the South Pacific.

    If like myself. You are a fan of The Rocketeer and the various spin-offs to it. Then you will likely really enjoy this one shot. I particularly enjoyed the Amelia Earhart story as well as the story that featured what might well have been Indiana Jones. Of course, he was not referenced as such in the story. As I am pretty sure that would have been somewhat awkward given that IDW at present does not have the license for that character. At least as far as we know. I wish someone would bring us an Indiana Jones comic though. Read Full Review

    Theres no question that the Rocketeer could easily land in his own long-running series. The swashbuckling adventures of a guy and a rocket pack could work so well in so many different types of action from the 1940s. Stevens never really had the opportunity to bring the character the kind of long-running adventures that he might have deserved, but its nice to see other people take another look at the character a few decades after his big debut back in the early 1980s.
