Bibliophilia: Rocketeer Adventures Vol. 1

I was a fan of the Rocketeer right from the get go. Loved the original graphic novel, and loved the 1991 movie. Come on, he flies through the air with a rocket pack strapped to his back, fights bad guys, and Bettie Page is his girlfriend. What’s not to love? This is a compilation of different writers and artists who have a go at the Rocketeer, a character it seemed to me doesn’t get the appreciation he deserves. All the short stories in this are enjoyable in a light hearted way, (it is essentially a repetition of the same basic story), but the art work of Chris Weston really stood out for me. That cover alone is worth the price of admission!
