Rocketeer Adventures, Volume 1by Mike Allred, Kurt Busiek, John Cassaday, Darwyn Cooke, Lowell Francis
Dave Stevens' The Rocketeer was an instant hit the moment it hit the spinner rack in the earl 1980s. Stevens' lush and distinctive artwork and fun, action-driven story was inspired by the adventure pulp novels of the era The Rocketeer was set in. Stevens produced only two Rocketeer graphic novels - collected to much acclaim by IDW - and his life was tragically cut short when he succumbed to Hairy Cell Leukemia. Now, with the full cooperation of the Stevens estate, IDW is pleased to present new interpretations of The Rocketeer by some of today's finest talents. So, pull up a chair, sit down a while, and discover The Rocketeer all over again!

This anthology is sadly like most, which is a mixed bag. It was really great to see some of the industry's best work on this classic book but the stories were so short, no one was able to spread their wings. I think I really just want a modern take on this character with Mike Allred at them helm. Due to the format, it was a lightning quick read. Overall, a decent but not spectacular look into the past.
The only fault I have with this is that none of the stories link together and aren't even chronological. Still a good read though with pretty decent art.
A lot very
