There’s days when I love comics and then there’s days when I LOVE comics. Reading Rocketeer Adventures 2 #1 made me glad that out of all the hobbies or passions in the world, that mine is comic books. From start to finish, this book is one of the highest quality works I’ve read in a long time.

There’s three stories in this issue: Marc Guggenheim, Peter David, and Stan Sakai all tell wonderfully charming stories of the late Dave Steven‘s Rocketeer. While all three are good, Stan Sakai’s is my favorite. There’s a great innocence to it and a fantastic ending that will leave you smiling. Speaking of smiling, Peter David’s story will have you grinning from ear to ear. It’s an all out parody of our hero and very entertaining from start to finish. Marc Guggenheim’s story is the first of the issue and I think it’s meant to be the “heavy” of the issue. While I liked it, I really felt that I was being covertly preached to.

You can’t really say much about the artists in this book — they’re all legends! You’ve got Sandy Plunkett, Bill Sienkiewicz, Stan Sakai, and Arthur Adams. Can you GET any better than that? No, you really can’t. Each artist delivers on a level that you’d expect from these great talents. The most interesting choice to match artist with story is Bill Sienkiewicz. His story is basically a cartoon, but he doesn’t change his style one bit (and why should he?). And throw in a pin-up by Arthur Adams, and you’ve got the total package, art wise. This issue is definitely a treat for the eyes.

They don’t really come much better than this, folks! IDW Publishing and Scott Dunbier have put together a fantastic comic that is worthy of the legendary creation that it features. Grab it before it sells out!!!
