Will Eisner‘s The Spirit and Dave Stevens‘ The Rocketeer are two of the most beloved characters ever to grace comics—and now these two great pulp-inspired heroes meet for the very first time!
After a Central City Alderman disappears and is found dead in Los Angeles, commissioner Dolan, along with Denny Colt (AKA The Spirit), and Dolan’s daughter Ellen, trek out to the City of Angels to investigate. Meanwhile, Cliff Secord (The Rocketeer) consoles his sweetheart Betty… who is traumatized after accidentally discovering the politician’s body. As the unlikely duo dive into the mystery, a deeper one unfolds—one that is masterminded by two of our heroes’ arch-villains! Hold on tight for a rocket-propelled double-dose of danger!
