Cliff Secord has finally decided to abandon the Rocketeer persona for good and concentrate on making his gal, Betty, proud of him by taking an honest-to-goodness legit gig-piloting an experimental rocket plane in a death-defying race halfway around the world! Cliff must navigate both the route and the myriad ace pilots assembled against him in order to secure one of the most valuable prizes ever offered. If only the competition were as prepared as Cliff to play it straight... Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines!

    Overall. A solid second issue that leaves us with an exciting cliffhanger to stew on until next month. Read Full Review

    While this issue is billed as the next chapter of the Rocketeer, our hero barely makes a cameo. Instead we're forced to ensure some out-of-character choices from our hero's alter ego and some one-dimensional behavior from the supporting cast. Read Full Review

    Other than a short flashback of a handful of panels, we don't get the Rocekteer in action here. Everything is centered around the start of the race, the racers, and the foreboding of what the Nazi may have planned for his fellow racers and the secrets of what are really happening behind the scenes. Perhaps the Rocketeer will be needed before the finish line after all? Read Full Review
