Episode 09. THE ROCKETEER (1991)

You'll believe a man can fly... oh wait...

On this episode, Dru and David's nostalgic trip down retro lane continues with Joe Johnston's THE ROCKETEER, which takes the beautiful visuals and engaging characters of the original comics and incorporates them into an even better, tighter adventure narrative. Dave Stevens' most enduring creation (aside from Betty's gams!) lives on!
