IDW Publishing has announced it is bringing us a new five-issue mini-series featuring everyone’s favorite jetpack-wearing hero – The Rocketeer!

Rocketeer RebornIn Rocketeer Reborn, writers Elsa Charretier and Pierrick Colinet along with artist Javier Pulido bring the Rocketeer to the modern era.

The Rocketeer is all but forgotten to most people, a legend of a bygone era. When Cliff’s jetpack is found in a most unexpected way, it’s a race for those with good and evil intent to grab hold, strap on, and take off for adventure!

“It’s an immense honor for us to contribute to Dave Stevens’ legacy, and a big responsibility as well— making sure we stay true to the spirit of the character for both old and new fans alike. We hope people will find a fresh, pulp-noir, modern Rocketeer, as Javier Pulido’s wonderfully unique style and inventive storytelling bring this new adventure to life,” say Charretier and Colinet.

While we don’t know who will be under the helmet, the word on the street is the next Rocketeer movie will feature a heroine, so don’t be surprised if Disney is prepping us for that flick with this new comic book mini-series.

I know I’m interested in knowing what happens next, and am looking forward to picking this up in December.
