As with all anthologies, there’s a risk of there being a few bum stories, and unfortunately, this instalment of Rocketeer Adventures has 2 of ‘em. The first story had good art from Chris Sprouse, but I didn’t really get what it was trying to say, it was trying to be both romantic, but also show that Cliff and Betty were being selfish? I dunno, it didn’t really work. The second story, written and drawn by Kyle Baker, looked nice too, but the concept of us jumping into the middle of a story with unseen previous instalments didn’t work, it’s a clever idea, but it ended up being confusing, but that said, a dog on a jetpack is always funny. The final story, by Matt Wagner and Eric Canete was the best one, the splash pages were excellent, and the look at the future really worked, showing how inspirational characters like the Rocketeer can be. So yes, this issue was a bit of a letdown, but it’s an anthology, they’ll always be uneven, that’s part of the charm.
