War of the Rocket Men

John Semper Jr., producer and head writer of  ‘Spider-Man: The Animated Series’ hosted a panel at this past weekend’s Comikaze expo at the L.A. Convention Center. He asked me to create an illustration with which he could announce his new project, which would be based on the old Commando Cody/King of the Rocket Men serial. I only had a day or so to throw something together because I had other project commitments, but here’s the finished  illustration I created for him. John launched a Facebook page to follow the progress of this project, so you can follow it HERE.

Here’s an interview Comic Book Cast with writer, John Semper.

Here’s a shot of the original character from the old serial. This is the character that inspired Dave Stevens’ creation, The Rocketeer.

    • Me, too. I used to talk to Dave Stevens at the Con every year and ask him when he’d do a new comic, and he would tell me that no one wanted it any more. And then after he died, everyone started doing Rocketeer comics. That kind of thing really bugged me.

      Anyway, he was a really nice guy to talk to.
