It's an exciting week guys. Not only are we talking about The Rocketeer, one of Dave's favourite things, but we are also joined by our pal -- and frequent Rocketeer artist -- J.Bone! We love him!
We read The Rocketeer: The Complete Adventures, which collects all six issues of Dave Stevens' Rocketeer comics. We also watched the 1991 Disney movie. So we are totally ready to talk about the high flying adventures of Cliff Secord.
Just real quick, too, the books I read and recommended this week were Becky Cloonan's By Chance or Providence (Image) and The Wendy Project by Melissa Jane Osborne and Veronica Fish (Super Genius). I also recommend the prose novel, Peter Darling by Austin Chant, if you want to read another beautiful reinterpretation of Peter Pan.
Dave recommended the first issue of Elsewhere (Image) by Jay Faerber, Ron Riley and Sumeyye Kesgin.
Next week we are reading The Thing: The Project Pegasus Saga (Marvel) by Mark Gruenwald, Ralph Macchio, John Byrne and George Perez. We are both very excited about it. It is technically out of print, but can be found in a number of formats that may be kicking around your local comic shop. First of all, it can be found in issues #53-58 plus issue #60 of Marvel Two-in-One, so you may be able to find the original issues. Or you can find it in black and white in Marvel Essentials: Marvel Two-in-One vol 3. Or you can find the hardcover collection that was published in 2010. Or, if you're like Dave and me, you have the old trade paperback from the late 80s. It's also available digitally on Marvel Unlimited and on Comixology, if it comes to that. The hardcover (which is what is on Comixology) has extra content, by the way.
See you next week! Thanks, J! And thanks for listening, everybody!
