The final issue of this second anthology brings us 3 great stories and once again a true feast for the eyes. The first story is from Louise and Walt Simonson, and it was just more proof at how good Simonson is as an artist and how good it is to have him back working regularly, both on short stories like this and on Avengers. It was a joy to read a story with his art showing Rocketeer fighting Nazi plans. The second story was from David Mandel and J Bone, and was a hilarious tale of misunderstanding. Rocketeer is zapped to an alien planet, and in his mind he’s living out an epic John Carter Of Mars love-story, but we see the other side, that everyone on the planet hates him and wants to eat him and he’s fucked everything up. It’s a simple joke, but it was very funny, and Bone’s art is perfect for it. The last story was from John Byrne, and it featured some of the best art from him I’ve seen in years, and for once, his old-fashioned style is appropriate. This has been a very fun series, perhaps not as good as the first volume, but anthologies are hit and miss by their very nature, and every issue has had something to recommend it. Next up we have the first long-form Rocketeer story not from Dave Stevens. Can Waid and Samnee deliver? I hope so.
