Product Description

Relive Cliff Secord’s fateful first flight as The Rocketeer with this classic twist-top rollerball pen. Panels from the comic wrap the barrel, protected with a gloss finish and accented with stonewashed brass trim. The famous “Target” image from the Pacific Presents #1 back cover adorns the top disc. Each pen is numbered on the top ring and packaged in a graphic tube featuring a collage of pages straight from the comic book!

Brought to life in 1982 by writer/artist Dave Stevens, "The Rocketeer" is an exciting and beautifully illustrated homage to the Saturday matinee serial heroes from the 1930s through the 1950s. The story goes: In 1938 Los Angeles, Cliff Secord, a local racing pilot and barnstormer, discovers a rocket pack hidden by two gangsters fleeing the police. When he decides to take it for a spin, his life is turned upside down – in more ways than one! Cliff's pulpy adventures are set in Los Angeles and New York, and Stevens gave them a retro, nostalgic feel influenced by the King of the Rocket Men and Commando Cody movie serials, as well as pinup diva Bettie Page.
