Rocketeer: Cargo Of Doom #2 (Imagine them with Rockets Spoil

Postby Punchy » Tue Sep 18, 2012 8:30 am

More brilliantly old-school fun from Waid and Samnee, and it’s awesome to see just how pulpy they are getting, and how they are bringing in stuff from other media. This issue heavily references King Kong, and in the end, it’s revealed that the titular ‘Cargo of Doom’ is…. Dinosaurs from Skull Island! Dinosaurs! The Rocketeer is going to fight some Dinosaurs, how can you not be extremely pumped for that? The artwork from Samnee was once again excellent, he really is a fantastic artist and he has a great relationship with Waid, and it’s so cool that we’re getting a double-dose of it every month with both this title and Daredevil. I was a bit confused by the new character Earl Garland, who at first seemed like he was going to be a villain but then immediately became a friend to Cliff Secord, Odd. The relationship drama is a bit hokey, but it’s a long-held tradition of Rocketeer stories that Betty is a total dick to Cliff, so I don’t mind it too much.

Fantastic issue. Absolutely loving that we're getting more than a 4 page story of new Rocketeer awesomeness.
