    Awesome!

    Awesome series! For Nook Color users, you need the software update(a link to instructions on how to get the update is in the comic's description) to be able to read this comic on your Nook.

    The original may be a little rough, but it adds to the charm

    I was one of the few people who was lucky enough to see the movie when I was a kid, but for the longest time I never knew it was based on a comic. Having read it now I can say that while the film adaption is slightly superior, the comic is well worth your time.

    First of all, the art by Dave Stevens is gorgeous. His affection for 1940s pin-up art is immeadiately obvious the first time you see Betty, modeled after the queen of pin-ups herself. His action sequences are quite good too and there's a ton of high-flying adventure.

    The main weakness of the comic is the plot, namely there isn't much of one. You can see the parallels to the plot of the film, but there's no central villian. The second half is a bit stronger even if the plot between Betty and Cliff barely factors into it. I imagine if Dave Stevens got a chance to continue with series he would have kept improving with his plotting, but sadly he was taken from us too soon.

    Still for only eight issues of Rocketeer, we've gotten a whole lot out of it. From the follow up comics written by greats like Kurt Busiek and Mark Waid, to what is still one of the best comic book adaptions by Hollywood. This is where it all begins, and while there are some rough edges to it you can see how it inspired other people to soar.
