Best. Comic. Ever.

I read Rocketeer when it first appeared as a backup in Starslayer and Pacific Comics Presents. Then we had to wait forever for the conclusion. Then the 2nd story came out, and we had to wait forever for the conclusion. Stevens seemed to come out of nowhere, and I loved his use of Doc and the Shadow. And it was my first introduction to Betty Page...

then there was claims of possible future Rocketeer stories, done with others (so they've come out more reliably).

Sigh.

Thanks for the reminder. I've been meaning to pick up one of the new editions.

emb021, your experience is exactly the same as mine... seeing it as the backup in Starslayer and PCP, and being absolutely captivated... and then no new issues... and in those pre-internet days, no news...

"Sigh," indeed.

CPC, my pleasure. This book is pure art.
