The Rocketeer Experiences a “Hollywood Horror”!
Continuing their relationship with Dave Stevens’ high-flying hero, IDW Publishing is continuing their successful line of comics with a brand-new Rocketeer miniseries for 2013! Beginning in February, fans of Cliff Secord’s aeronautic acrobatics will be treated to The Rocketeer: Hollywood Horror. Written by Eisner and Harvey Award winner Roger Langridge and illustrated by Eisner nominee J. Bone, Hollywood Horror is another action-packed chapter in the saga of comics’ favorite flyboy! As an added bonus, legendary comics superstar Walter Simonson has signed on as cover artist!
Always caught in the middle, it’s a pulp thrill ride when Cliff finds himself embroiled in a dark mystery in the seemingly picturesque heart of Hollywood’s golden age! He may be neck-deep in mystery and mayhem, but it wouldn’t be a Cliff Secord caper if his sweetheart, the stunning Betty, weren’t steamed at him!
Also flying onto shelves in February is the hardcover collection of Mark Waid and Chris Samnee’s The Rocketeer: Cargo of Doom. Deadly creatures from lost lands find their way to California’s shores and create some awfully hot water for Cliff and friends in this rollicking four-issue series, collected in a beautiful hardcover volume.
For fans of high-altitude adventure and on-the-ground intrigue, there’s simply no substitute for The Rocketeer!
