Mark Waid & Chris Samnee’s ‘The Rocketeer’ Takes Flight This Week [Preview]
On sale this week from IDW Publishing is The Rocketeer: Cargo of Doom #1, launching the new miniseries by written by Mark Waid, drawn by Chris Samnee, colored by Jordie Bellaire and based on characters created by Dave Stevens. The Rocketeer is one of our favorite indie comics creations, and IDW has done a phenomenal job managing the characters since the untimely death of Stevens, reprinting and restoring not just his own work but also publishing two volumes of the Rocketeer Adventures anthology, which featured new stories by some of comics' best working artists. Waid and Samnee's Cargo of Doom will be the first long-form Rocketeer story created since Stevens' original run, and you can take an early look at their adventure in the preview pages below.
The Rocketeer: Cargo of Doom #1 goes on sale this Wednesday in finer comics shops and digitally via comiXology.
