In the mid-to-late 1980’s I stumbled across Dave Steven’s Rocketeer comics. Not only did it feature a guy flying around fighting Nazi’s it also had some sweet Bettie Page pin-up art too. Granted, The Rocketeer isn’t really a true pulp hero, but the spirit is there and I include him in the genre… Hey, it’s my site, I’ll do what I want (wink).

Instead of featuring Dave Stevens’ art, I figured I’d showcase other artists inspired by the late great one.  This piece was done by Joel Ojeda Lopez, and looks really great in the composition and design.
