IDW Announces A Rocketeer/Spirit Crossover From Mark Waid And Paul Smith


IDW made a huge announcement at their WonderCon panel a little earlier today. A new four-issue miniseries seeing The Rocketeer and The Spirit crossing paths will roll out this July. “Pulp Friction” will see writer Mark Waid and artist Paul Smith taking on Will Eisner’s Spirit and Dave Stevens’ Rocketeer. There aren’t any more details at this time, but this image seeing the two heroes coming to blows was unveiled.

Waid recently penned  a Rocketeer adventure with his Daredevil partner Chris Samnee, called Cargo of Doom. It received rave reviews across the web, and at this very site. The Spirit hasn’t been seen in comics since DC stopped putting out stories in 2008. We’ll be sure to bring you more information as it becomes available.
