Get ready for some cool news. IDW Publishing and DC Entertainment have announced the meeting between two of my favorite pulp heroes, the Rocketeer and the Spirit. I like the Spirit so much I have still not been able to bring myself to watch the movie.
THE ROCKETEER/THE SPIRIT: PULP FRICTION will contain both a murder mystery and political intrigue. The story will take place in the Spirit's gritty Central City as well as the sunny skies of Los Angeles. There will be plenty of action and humor in the series.
Here's what Mark Waid had to say:
Not many writers have been lucky enough to write The Rocketeer or The Spirit, so I feel like I’ve won the lottery. This is one of the most exciting—and scariest—assignments I’ve ever undertaken. Luckily, I’ve got Paul Smith to make me look good!
The fun begins on July 10. Make sure to let you comic shop know you're interested in the series.
