The cat’s out of the bag, and it’s one ugly cat The first rule of Fight Club is, “You don’t talk about Fight Club.”  The first rule about finding a key that unlocks your head and allows you to add or remove memories is, “You don’t talk about Fight Club (or the fact you have a key that unlocks your head).”  It’s only going to lead to trouble down the road.

The Complete Rocketeer Coming from IDW

One of my favorite finds from the 1980’s was Dave Stevens’ The Rocketeer.  Since it wasn’t published by one of the big two at the time, I had a devil of a time tracking down the individual issues.  Each comic book convention I’ve attended in the recent years, have either not had the missing issues I needed, or had the price jacked up beyond having a nice reader copy. Fortunately, this October (2009), IDW will release the complete collected Rocketeer series in a nice hardcover edition featuring a cover remastered from Dave Stevens original work. After more than a decade…
