It’s apparently been forty years since the original release of The Rocketeer, and IDW celebrated that by launching a new miniseries. Written and illustrated by Stephen Mooney, this volume is perfect for fans old and new.

And by new, I mean new to the series in general. I’ll confess that I hadn’t read the originals before diving in here (sorry to long-standing fans, but I couldn’t resist!), and it was SO easy to get swept up in the plot. So if you’ve been debating about giving it a try, debate no more: go try it!

The Rocketeer: The Great Race is an action-packed read, and I do mean that fairly literally. It’s got planes, rockets (obviously), and even a touch of that spy-thriller vibe. In short, if you like action (and lots of it), you’ve got to check this one out.

Thanks to IDW and #NetGalley for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
