IDW Celebrates With "Rocketeer" Anthology

IDW Publishing's 'The Rocketeer' #1, available May 18, 2011, is written by Mike Allred, Kurt Busiek and John Cassaday, with illustrations by Mike Allred, John Cassaday, Michael Kaluta, Mike Mignola and Jim Silke, with covers by Alex Ross and Dave Stevens:

"...Dave Stevens unveiled the Rocketeer nearly 30 years ago to instant acclaim, and in all the years since that auspicious debut, respect for Stevens' talent and his greatest creation have only continued to grow.

"Last year, IDW released the complete 'Rocketeer' saga in several editions, showcasing the work of this great artist as it was always meant to be seen -- completely remastered, with nearly every page scanned directly from the originals and recolored by Stevens' hand-picked colorist.

"IDW celebrates Stevens' talent once again, with an all-new 'Rocketeer' anthology miniseries written and drawn by some of the finest creators in comics, and with the full cooperation of the Stevens family."
