    The Rocketeer was one of the better comic movies, IMHO but the comic was far superior. Actually, the video game was pretty good too.

    I think I have all the Rocketeer comics. [​IMG] That guy could draw the sexiest women! RIP, Dave!

    Here's a great article by Mark Evanier:

    Nice movie, I was a little young when I watched it, and I ever remember I saw it on TV... man that was a long ago.

    Never saw the comics, but did see the SNES game and do own the movie on DVD as it's just a really well done early comic adaptation in a time when other than Dick Tracy they really didn't go beyond tape releases, and typically sucked.
