Dave Stevens's The Rocketeer: The Complete Collection
Now, I didn't know most of that before I saw the book on my local library's comic shelf last week. I've been a big fan of the film even since I first saw it in the theaters, but I had never read an issue of the comic book until just I checked out this book. Honestly, I didn't realize the character premiered in the 80s. Stevens created such a brilliant homage to the comics and movie serials of the 30s and 40s that I always assumed that was when the first Rocketeer comics came out.
Anyway, check it out if you are a fan of comics or of the Rocketeer film. Or, really, if you just love great stories and beautiful artwork.
