Dave Stevens? The Rocketeer was an instant hit the moment it hit the spinner rack in the earl 1980s. Stevens? lush and distinctive artwork and fun, action-driven story was inspired by the adventure pulp novels of the era The Rocketeer was set in. Stevens produced only two Rocketeer graphic novels - collected to much acclaim by IDW - and his life was tragically cut short when he succumbed to Hairy Cell Leukemia. Now, with the full cooperation of the Stevens estate, IDW is pleased to present new interpretations of The Rocketeer by some of today?s finest talents. So, pull up a chair, sit down a while, and discover The Rocketeer all over again!

Kurt Busiek

Kurt Busiek was born in Boston, MA. He began writing comics professionally in 1982, selling stories to both DC and Marvel Comics in the same month, both of which appeared the same day.

Since then, he's written series and characters ranging from Mickey Mouse to Vampirella, including Aquaman, Spider-Man, Conan, Iron Man, the Avengers and more.

He is best known for the Marvels series and for his co-creation ASTRO CITY, both of which have garnered numerous industry awards. He lives in the Pacific Northwest with his wife, Ann, and his two daughters.

He spends far too much time on the Internet.

Darwyn Cooke

Darwyn Cooke was an Eisner Award-winning cartoonist and animator. After spending several years as a magazine art director and graphic designer, Cooke switched careers and began working in animation, where he contributed to such shows as Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series and Men In Black: The Series. From there, DC Comics approached Cooke to write and illustrate a project that the artist had submitted to the company years earlier - Batman: Ego. The critical success of the title led to more freelance work, including the relaunch of the Catwoman series with writer Ed Brubaker (which inspired Cooke to write and draw the graphic novel Catwoman: Selina's Big Score). Cooke then spent several years writing and drawing the ambitious epic The New Frontier, a six-issue miniseries bridging the gap between the end of the Golden Age of comics and the beginnings of the Silver Age.
