THE ROCKETEER : THE GREAT RACE #1-4 (Stephen Mooney)

Le Rocketeer fête cette année son 40ème anniversaire. L’éditeur IDW a donc des plans pour le héros créé par Dave Stevens, dont une mini-série qui sera publiée à partir d’avril.

The Rocketeer : The Great Race est écrit et dessiné par Stephen Mooney (The Dead Hand, Web of Black Widow…).

The Rocketeer: The Great Race is a four-issue series by writer/artist Stephen Mooney which will see our intrepid stunt pilot Cliff Secord take part in an air race that runs from California to France - that’s right, from the US west coast to European west coast. This all happens as the drum beats for war are heightening in Europe, as the Rocketeer is a period piece set in just before the second World War.

La couverture variante par Stephen Mooney :

Stephen Mooney :

« Writing and drawing a Rocketeer book has long been somewhat of a bucket-list item for me. I grew up on Dave Stevens’ unique blend of swashbuckling derring-do and pulpy adventure with Cliff, Betty, and Peevy, and those seminal issues still stand today as one of my favorite series of all time, » says Mooney. « It’s incredibly daunting and yet also fantastically thrilling and a real challenge. Let’s take to the skies! »

CELEBRATING THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE VERY FIRST APPEARANCE OF THE ROCKETEER!

Ace stunt pilot Cliff Secord has returned from his New York Adventure to a West Coast steeped
in paranoia over the looming war in Europe. Having finally had enough of his near-death scrapes as the high-flying Rocketeer, the only thing in Cliff’s crosshairs is The Great Race: a prestigious, winner-take-all air race that runs from California to France! Maybe it’s finally time to smarten up and fly straight . . . by taking his best girl Betty to Paris! But other parties want to win the race for their own nefarious ends, and Cliff will need to decide which prize is truly the most valuable of all.

BONUS FEATURE: Each issue will contain an oral history-featuring Dave Stevens’s friends, family and fellow artists-all culled together by Kelvin Mao, longtime friend of Stevens’s and the director of the forthcoming documentary on the beloved artist!
