Rocketeer rocketing your way in a week or so!

The first issue of the new Rocketeer mini-series “Hollywood Horror” by
Roger Langridge and J. Bone debuts on Feb. 27th! This series will also have
exclusive-to-Strange-Adventures variant covers by Signalnoise!

The first two images have been posted to the web and IDW’s editor-in-chief, Chris Ryall,
noted that the first one was even posted to Comics Alliances “Best Art Ever (this week)”

Stay tuned to our Facebook, twitter and website – we’re hoping to arrange a charity
screening of The Rocketeer to mark the release of the first issue!

Keepin’ it Canuck
Some nifty blogs and websites that focus on comics with a Canadian flavour:

Sequential is a Canadian comix news and culture website that has news, reviews
and more. Here’s a sample -

both these sites also have links to other spots you might find interesting!

Unreal Estate
I may have already mentioned this one, but it’s worth another look if I did.
Tim Doyle, aka Nakatomi Tim, is an artist based in Texas and recently did a solo
show called UnReal Estate. New visions of places like Evergreen Terrace, Downton
Abbey, the cafe from Twin Peaks, and, of course, Castle Greyskull.
