The Rocketeer: The Great Race #1

After getting shot down by some Nazi spies, Cliff Secord has decided to retire the Rocketeer. But what's a pilot turned part-time hero to do to make a living? And then comes the opportunity almost to good to be true.

The Rocketeer: The Great Race #1 introduces Cliff to a local millionaire who wants Cliff to fly his prototype plane in a winner-take-all race from California to France. Despite the dangerous of such a journey, even Betty is onboard. After all, it is safer than getting shot down by Nazis. However, trouble looms for our hero just on the horizon.

Since it feels like Cliff might be out of costume for some or even most of this four-issue mini-series, we get some early panels of the Rocketeer in action before the larger story kicks off. Next, on to the Great Race.
