Known as â€œBlue Lights,â€ the non-living are mostly harmless, roaming the streets, hiding from city lights, scuttling in the shadows.

One of my favorite finds from the 1980’s was Dave Stevens’ The Rocketeer.Â 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.Â 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.
