    Indie Comics Spotlight: The Rocketeer

    Indie Comics Spotlight: The Rocketeer

    Today's episode is brought to you by Reburn.  Please, treat yourself and get a copy of this brilliant indie comic.



    The Rocketeer

    "Using the stolen rocket-pack for the first time, racing pilot Cliff Secord has taken to the skies - in a desperate bid to save the life of a fellow flyer!" - from the opening of chapter 2, on page 19

    That breathless style of narration and the accompanying first-rate illustrations (to wit: just look at that striking action hero pose adorning the cover . . . which is incredibly misleading, because his pistol-packing scenes last for a single scant page) ought to help in making The Rocketeer - possibly best remembered these days from the very good 1991 live-action film version by Disney, done in the vein of the Indiana Jones series - a sky-blazing success. However, I was disappointed by this book - it's one of those rare cases where the movie inspired by it is much better! The titular character is a dork who usually lucks into being heroic rather than, you know, actually being solid hero material. The two stories were subpar (they were supposed to be connected, but the second one confusingly heads off in another direction after an obligatory origin tale) and the so-called humor seemed forced most of the time. The sole saving grace? Said 'hero's girlfriend was drawn to resemble the real-life pin-up queen Bettie Page. However, a pretty face was not enough to save the day in this case.

    Indie Comics Spotlight: Creator Corner: Breath of Shadows

    Indie Comics Spotlight: Creator Corner: Breath of Shadows

    Today's episode is brought to you by Reburn.  Please, treat yourself and get a copy of this brilliant indie comic.





    Check out this playlist that Rich made for this book!



    In February 2023, IDW Publishing is releasing issue #1 of its IDW
    Original Series, Breath of Shadows, a five-issue miniseries from Bram
    Stoker Award–Nominated Comic Book Creators Rich Douek and Alex Cormack
    that melds the horror genre with drugs and rock ‘n’ roll, resulting
    in an edge-of-your-seat, dark-and-twisted, must-read!



    BREATH OF SHADOWS SYNOPSIS:

    It’s 1968. On the fast track to becoming one of his era’s most
    iconic rock stars, Jimmy Meadows should be basking in the glow of newly
    acquired wealth and fame. Instead, crushed by the weight of a
    debilitating heroin addiction, Jimmy is on the verge of losing
    everything—until an old friend tips him off to an unorthodox treatment
    method hidden in the depths of the South American jungle. With
    fair-weather friends, local opportunists, and industry sycophants in
    tow, Jimmy sets off in search of what he’s sure will be a miracle
    cure. But as the excursion veers off course and the realities of their
    environment begin to bleed together with Jimmy’s paranoia and
    drug-induced hallucinations, the team quickly descends into a nightmare
    of bloody chaos populated by unspeakable horrors that surpass even the
    most brutal drug trip.



    About the Creators

    Rich Douek is a Bram Stoker Award finalist and the writer of original
    series such as Sea of Sorrows, Road of Bones, and Wailing Blade. He has

    Blue and Strange Love Adventures, among many other projects. Born in
    Queens, NY, he is a lifelong resident of the NYC metro area and works as
    a creative director in advertising when he’s not busy writing comics.

    Swim, KRS Comics, and a bunch more. He lives in Vermont with his wife,
