Here's a preview of Brendan's upcoming story for 'Rocketeer Adventures' issue three...

Brendan: I enjoyed working on this story, my little homage to the late and great Dave Stevens. I met Dave in Los Angeles, way back in the early 1980's on my first trip to LA. He was a very nice man and we hung out a bit in his studio. He liked my art and we kind of shared a sensibility... I had been really getting into the few installments of The Rocketeer that had been published so far. He introduced me to Dean Mullaney at Pacific Comics, and they commissioned my first American comics gig, Freakwave. That led onto Strange Days, and the rest is a minor footnote in comics' history.

IDW's Scott Dunbier approached me about doing an 8 page story for his Rocketeer anthology a few months ago... He's assembled a great line up. I had an idea for a story about a flying femme-fatale called The Aeronaut. I asked for an American writer to script it, as I wasn't sure I would have an ear for that period US dialogue. The great John Arcudi did a superb job. I really liked his tightly-written script.

It's out sometime in August. Hope you enjoy it.
