Présentation de l'éditeur

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!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 On en redemande ! 9 janvier 2012
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Cet ouvrage est un hommage rendu au dessinateur trop tôt disparu Dave Stevens ('The Rocketeer: The Complete Adventures', 'Dave Stevens: Complete Sketches & Studies'), avec de courtes nouvelles aventures de son principal héros Rocketeer proposées par de vraies stars de la BD américaine : les époux Allred, les scénaristes Busiek et Waid, les dessinateurs Darwyn Cooke, Ryan Sook (Long time no see!), le coloriste Dave Stewart etc. Aucun tâcheron !
Toute l'équipe rassemblée propose le meilleur de ce qu'elle sait faire et, s'il n'y a pas d'énorme surprise, c'est un témoignage d'admiration uniformément de grande qualité qui nous est proposé.
Rocketeer est un jeune américain fanatique d'aviation qui vit des aventures de super-héros grâce à un petit moteur à réaction fixé sur son dos, un peu avant la seconde guerre mondiale. Sa petite amie a les traits de la légendaire pin-up Bettie Page (une amie de Dave Stevens) et c'est bien évidemment un des attraits de ce comics.
Il s'agit d'un "volume 1": puisse le volume 2 ne pas tarder et présenter la même qualité !

3.0 étoiles sur 5 a mixed bag but worth reading 24 juin 2012
Par Vesper - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
As a huge fan of both Dave Stevens and The Rocketeer, I earnestly ordered this because until IDW decided to publish it there were no Rocketeer comics except those by Stevens himself. I had hopes that it would continue his legacy well, and that maybe I'd finally find out what happens after Betty walked into the Bulldog Cafe. The truth is that while Rocketeer Adventures does have some well-written and well-illustrated stories, it has some damn awful ones as well. Also, bad news for people hoping to see a continuation of Stevens' storyline, Rocketeer Adventures is an anthology series, and the only vignette that attemps to further the original story ("Home Again" by Michael Allred) is perhaps the worst story in there, and Allred obviously knows nothing about these characters. I mean, did he even read The Rocketeer? Nevertheless, as a die hard Rocketeer fan I still enjoyed reading through it, and as I said there are some gems in here. Although personally, if I had to do it over again, I'd have just leafed through it at my local comic book store instead of buying it.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The Rocketeer Returns at last... 10 mai 2012
Par J. L. Braswell - Publié sur Amazon.com
The Rocketeer adventures is a collection of a four individually released issues of the same title that has been released by IDW, the company that has taken over the property ever since creator Dave Stevens left us. It features short stories by various artists and writers who deliver us their own take on this beloved character and his pre-World War II adventures. It's pretty neat at times, but overall a bit hit and miss. Some of these guys really did a great job with their stories, while some I feel don't quite get The Rocketeer. Here is a breakdown of each story, who contributed, and what I thought worked or did not work:

"The Rocketeer" - John Cassaday wrote and illustrated this short and did an excellent job. He really captured Dave Stevens style, and the character likenesses were beautiful. The story that featured a kidnapped Betty tied to a missile was a tad overkill, but overall fun and satisfying and definitely in keeping with the stories which inspired it.

"Home Again" - Michael Allred brings his own style to the proceedings with some decent if cartoony looking art, but the story was terrible and badly attempted to tie directly into Stevens' three part final story for The Rocketeer, "Cliff's New York Adventure", offering a vague story that went nowhere and made no real sense at all.

"Dear Betty" - Kurt Busiek brings us a tale from Betty's point of view as WWII rages and she waits on postcards from Cliff. The story is endearing, but I am not a fan of Michael Kaluta's artwork. I think my biggest problem, though, are those terrible post cards that he drew, featuring very silly nonsense such as The Rocketeer fighting a giant iron Japanese Octopus, or the giant ape dressed like a Samurai that Cliff is having a sword fight with. Sillyness like that is not The Rocketeer and actually serves to undermine an otherwise nice story.

"It ain't the Fall That Kills Ya..." - Mark Waid wrote this story about an actor Cliff clashes with who does a stunt as a new superhero to advertise one of the latest funny books. Waid's story is a bit silly, to be quite honest, though his little ironic joke about the comic book medium is enjoyable. Chris Weston offered up some good artwork that captures the originals pretty well. Waid also is writing the upcoming 4 part miniseries, The Rocketeer: Cargo of Doom.

"Betty Saves the Day!" - Silly nonsense from Darwyn Cooke, though I give him credit for trying to capture the old Republic Pictures serial feel.

"TKO" - The best story out of the collection, in my opinion, brought to us by Lowell Francis and drawn by Gene Ha. The story has ties to the past and appearances by Doc Savage and his two pals. The Rocketeer battles an aerial opponent in another stolen gizmo that allows him to fly. The story's battle reflects a real boxing match that was airing over radios at the same time. Pretty nifty. I appreciated the links to Doc Savage in this one, showing that Cliff hasn't been forgotten by him. Gene's art looks nice too!

"A Rocketeer Story" - Ryan Sook writes and illustrates a story that captures the world of The Rocketeer rather effectively. Betty's big on screen premiere gets robbed and Cliff is late for the show!

"Heaven's Devils" - Plotted and drawn by Bruce Timm, but actually written by Joe R. Lansdale, this was sort of a disappointment for me. It is actually a short story rather than a comic book, with a few illustrations along the way. The story was great, but the writing style left a bit to be desired. I am sorry, but things like, "catching her lingerie on the edge of the plane, ripping the fragile garment and exposing a lot of smooth, creamy flesh," makes this sound like a generic smut novel. It's hard to take seriously when I have to endure such amateurish sounding writing by Lansdale. Timm's overly stylized Batman: The Animated Series artwork wasn't that impressive either. I was looking forward to this one, but ended up disappointed in it's overall execution. Still, an overall good plot. The devil is in the detail!

"Junior Rocketeers" - Not very interesting story by Jonathan Ross, featuring some kids who are on to The Rocketeer. Naturally, we get the trite story of the annoying kids saving the day. Meh. I am not impressed by Tommy Lee Edwards particular art style either. He commits the cardinal sin of making Betty look like a clown rather than the sexy lady she is.

"A Day at the Beach" - This silly story by Dave Gibbons about surfing somehow manages to be rather entertaining when all is said and done. Pretty good art by Scott Hampton helps it along.

"Waterlogged" - Joe Pruett's story about a Japanese submarine off the coast that interrupts Cliff's day at the park is rather far fetched and silly. Adding to the problem is Tony Harris' artwork which is too exaggerated and weird for me to enjoy. Add this guy to the list of folks who don't need to be drawing Betty!

"The Flight of the Aeronaut" - John Acrudi's story falls into what could be a potential pit fall for this new series...the need to keep dreaming up aerial opponents for The Rocketeer to battle, who all happen to be equipped with flying packs of some sort. The Rocketeer is a hero, yes, but not a superhero. He doesn't need super-villains. With that said, the story isn't bad at all. Brendan McCarthy brings an interesting style to the illustrations that don't look anything like Steven's work, yet somehow captures the flavor of the story quite well. For artwork that is a departure from what we are used to in The Rocketeer, his is the most welcome.

Overall, this book is an enjoyable collection with only a handful of things that caused me to wince or that stood out as something that didn't need to rear its head in a Rocketeer story. That is to be expected, though, as the material branches out and is explored by many different artists and story tellers. Alex Ross supplies some beautiful artwork here and there throughout the book, as well as the cover itself. An added benefit is seeing a few older works from Dave Stevens himself pop up in between stories. Rocketeer Adventures is a somewhat hit or miss affair, but overall a welcome new collection that should have something for every Rocketeer fan!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great, retro flavored book that makes you smile 23 février 2012
Par Andrew - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
My first exposure to The Rocketeer came when I was a wee lad and saw the vastly underrated film. I didn't know at the time that it was based on a comic book series, but I discovered it through the Complete Rocketeer released a couple of years ago. This is a perfect companion to the original two adventures that Dave Stevens wrote and illustrated. Each short story in this anthology is a great throwback to the retro 30's and 40's and the high flying adventure stories that inspired The Rocketeer in the first place.

I loved every story, every artist, the Alex Ross covers I drooled over, the wonderful hardcover design, and the bonus pinups in the back.

Highly recommend to any fan of The Rocketeer or 30's retro flavored adventure stories.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great To See The Rocketeer Back in Action 13 janvier 2015
Par Tim Field - Publié sur Amazon.com
As a fan of the original series from the very beginning, I was pleased to see other artists and writers pay homage to Dave Stevens' landmark hero. Of course, no one can replace Dave Stevens, but it was fun to see so many talented folks romping in the 1940's playground. I especially enjoyed the art of John Cassaday, Darwyn Cooke, Gene Ha and Michael Wm. Kaluta. I have only one minor gripe and that is so many of the stories featured Betty being pursued by men and Cliff getting jealous. This plotline might work fine in a longer story arc like Dave Stevens', but in an eight-page format it just seems forced.

Regardless, buy this book and have some fun!
