    The final couple of pages picks back up with Peevy as we see him put to work by the Nazis. I really look forward to seeing where this plot thread goes in the next few issues because we all know how clever and out-of-the-box Peevy can be. Read Full Review

    Messina delivers some fantastic art throughout the issue. Beyond the great character moments, the overall classic look of the art allows for scenes that look like posters I would hang on my wall. Read Full Review

    The Rocketeer should always be, at it's heart, a fun action story in the vein of swashbuckling adventures. This book is shaping up to be just that. While my only history with the character is the film adaptation, I never felt like I was lost or needed to go back to figure out any other comic backstory. Read Full Review

    I liked the first issue a great deal. This one -- not so much. Nothing happened in this one. Cliff realizes that Peev was captured, though there's no way that those jet packs would get from the US to Germany. He asks for help, only to be turned down. He gets a mystious visit and we see Peev in Germany. That's it. Really didn't move the story along at all.

    I think the story and art are a solid 8. However, $4.99 US for only 20 pages of story/art out of a 32-page signature/book knocks this down to a 7 for me.
