I read this before I ever managed to find Dave Stevens' original comic version, so this may have influenced what I thought of that, originally. A tale of a young man, a rocket pack, a voluptuous girlfriend, a good-hearted mentor, nazis, mobsters and a crazy rich guy.

Throw in lots of aerial antics and flying around, and you have a fun pulp adventure.

I'll make this short and sweet. Written by comics pro Peter David, drawn by comics veteran/legend Russ Heath. You can ONLY beat that by Dave Stevens original work. From Joe Johnson, the underrated director of "CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER"!
