The biggest draw here is easily the artwork, and this opening issue goes straight after my own heart with work by some of my all-time favorite artists. The opening segment makes me wish John Cassaday would go back to doing sequential artwork. His style and charm lends itself perfectly to the pulp origins of the character. Mike Allred's portion contains the same quirky humor and sensibilities of his previous work and a fantastic spread of the Rocketeer flying over New York City. I'm not familiar with the work of artist Michael Kaluta, but his highly detailed style left quite an impression on me. The "Dear Betty" story he and writer Kurt Busiek produced ended up being my favorite because it's a stronger package when it comes to both story and art. Plus that final page is full of all kinds of win.
Rocketeer Adventures has so many great things going for it that you'd be a silly fool if you didn't pick it up. The Rocketeer is only 30 years old but much like Dave Stevens did in his original comics, these creators succeed in producing timeless and iconic pulp stories that all comic fans can enjoy.
The whole thing seemed destined to be D.O.A.
