99% Fluff Free Comic Con: Instant Pull-List Material - IDW's Rocketeer Anthology

One of the inter-company cross-overs I have always held out hope for, is 'Adam Strange meets The Rockeeter'. Not only are they two of my all-time favourite characters, the contrast between the two would make for some really awesome comic-book momments. 1930's America vs. Alien cultures, Nazi's vs. well alien Nazi's - see, it sells itself!

Now IDW announce they are going to do the next best thing, by releasing a four issue anthology Rocketeer series in 2011, with a percentage of profits going to Leukemia research, at the request of late creator Dave Stevens' mother, Carolyn.

Featuring three new Rocketeer stories per issue, plus pin-ups and covers by Alex Ross, editor Scott Dunbier told CBR, other creators getting in on the retro anthology's action include Michael Golden, Gene Ha, Garry Leach, Bruce Timm, Bill Willingham, and more.

"Mike Allred is writing and drawing his, Kurt Busiek is writing a story for Michael Kaluta, John Cassaday and Darwyn Cooke are both writing and drawing their stories," Dunbier said. "There will be some pin-ups by Geoff Darrow, Art Adams, Jeff Campbell, Mike Mignola, a bunch of different guys."
