I’m really happy to hear that IDW Publishing has opted to create an all new mini-series based on The Rocketeer property.  The two anthology series have done well, and show that there is still a lot of interest in the character.  At WonderCon 2012, the publisher announced writer Mark Waid and artist Chris Samnee will work on the series.
