A Modern-Day Hero Dons the Iconic Helmet and Jetpack in December

The Rocketeer, the pulp-inspired hero immortalized by the late, great Dave Stevens, blasts off once more in December with the first issue of a brand-new five issue IDW series: Rocketeer Reborn!

Writers Elsa Charretier and Pierrick Colinet (collaborators on Star Wars Adventures and The Infinite Loop) and artist Javier Pulido (Human Target, Hawkeye) reintroduce an all-new jetpack wearing hero into the 21st century.

In Rocketeer Reborn, eighty years have passed since Cliff Secord first found an experimental jetpack and soared through the skies as a high-flying hero. Now, decades later, The Rocketeer is all but forgotten to most people, a legend of a bygone era. When Cliff’s jetpack is found in a most unexpected way, it’s a race for those with good and evil intent to grab hold, strap on, and take off for adventure!

“It's an immense honor for us to contribute to Dave Steven's legacy, and a big responsibility as well— making sure we stay true to the spirit of the character for both old and new fans alike. We hope people will find a fresh, pulp-noir, modern Rocketeer, as Javier Pulido's wonderfully unique style and inventive storytelling bring this new adventure to life,” say Charretier and Colinet.

Javier Pulido playfully adds, “Drop the cellphone and look up in the sky. There – The Rocketeer flies again!”
