IDW honors ‘The Rocketeer’ 40th anniversary with daring new comic book miniseries

If you’re an avid fan of Golden Age pulp heroes who strap jetpacks to their backs, thwart dastardly villains and rescue damsels in distress, then mark your calendar for this April when IDW Publishing salutes the 40th anniversary of “The Rocketeer” with a new four-issue miniseries titled, “The Rocketeer: The Great Race.”

Creator Dave Stevens’ “The Rocketeer” first appeared as a short backup feature for Pacific Comics’ “Starslayer #2” in April 1982. Its cult status eventually led to Disney’s “The Rocketeer” feature film in 1991, which was directed by Joe Johnston and starred Billy Campbell, Jennifer Connelly, Alan Arkin and Timothy Dalton. A possible reboot of the material is also in the works from Disney Plus!
