On sale this week from IDW Publishing is The Rocketeer: Hollywood Horror #3, continuing what is only the second-ever full-length Rocketeer story not written and drawn by the late, great Dave Stevens. Produced in full cooperation with Stevens’ estate, the new miniseries by ComicsAlliance favorites Roger Langridge (Thor: The Mighty Avenger, The Muppet Show) and J. Bone (The Spirit, Wolverine/Doop) takes the Rocketeer into both familiar and unfamiliar territory with a possibly supernatural mystery that draws influence from the Golden Age of Hollywood, where the plucky model/actress Betty runs up against a creepy Hollywood cult while her boyfriend, perennial hero/screw-up Cliff, loses track of his irreplaceable Rocketeer jetpack.

One of ComicsAlliance’s picks for the Best Comics of 2012, Captain Marvel began the new year with a striking visual overhaul courtesy of Filipe Andrade and Jordie Bellaire, whose work can be described in any number of ways, but “Marvel house style” is not one of them. These artists’ increasingly attractive collaboration has made the already distinctive solo-woman superhero series stand out even further from the rest of the Marvel line, and you can get an idea of why in the sample pages featured on ComicsAlliance.
Here’s a preview of MARA, available today at your local comic shop or digitally on comiXology! I’m really pleased to be working on my first miniseries with such an awesome creative team. Seriously, they are wizards, so I hope you guys enjoy!
Acclaimed creator BRIAN WOOD (The Massive, DMZ, Demo, Northlanders) and brilliant newcomer MING DOYLE (The Loneliest Astronauts, Fantastic Four, Girl Comics) bring you MARA, the story of an especially gifted woman in a sports-and war-obsessed future. Young Mara Prince is at the top of the world, a global celebrity in a culture that prizes physical achievement above all else. After she manifests supernatural abilities on live TV, she becomes famous all over again but for the worst reasons. Integrating themes of superpowers, celebrity worship, corporate power, feminism, and political brinksmanship, MARA takes a classic genre to new places.
