Media Release — Available today, IDW is proud to announce The Rocketeer: The Complete Collection and The Rocketeer: The Complete Deluxe Edition. Both editions collect The Complete Rocketeer saga for the very first time, combining The Rocketeer and The Rocketeer: Cliff’s New York Adventure. Dave Stevens’ classic adventure strip is set in the 1930s and is an homage to the classic pulp novels of the time. Cliff Secord is a stunt pilot who happens upon a top-secret experimental Jet pack and meets adventure head on!
Long considered a classic, the Rocketeer has been out of print for years. Now, with the blessing and full cooperation of the Dave Stevens estate, the Rocketeer is collected as one book and with all-new coloring by Laura Martin, who was choosen by Dave Stevens to recolor the series).
The Deluxe Edition will feature everything in the regular hardcover edition but will be printed in a larger format (8 x 12 inches) and will contain more than 100 additional pages of sketches, preliminaries, layouts, and much, much more. A cornucopia of Dave Stevens art, many of these treasures have never been published before and will be printed here from the original art to ensure the highest quality reproduction possible.
