I was a dealer at a small comicon in Tulsa yesterday and towards the end of the day a gentleman started talking to the dealer next to me. Apparently, the dealer had been trying to contact this guy for some time to buy a poster from him. As they talked my interest peaked.

This guy used to be a radio announcer back in the early 1990s and he told us a short story about how he came about having these posters. I asked if he had an extra one with him and he said yes. So both the other dealer and I were able to obtain 1 copy of this poster. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. \:\)

Several pages of the third issue of Rocketeer Adventure Magazine found their way into the market, probably sold by the various people who had helped Dave meet the deadline on that issue (Art Adams, Sandy Plunkett and others).
Not saying the auction is legit, or not, but yes, there are pages out there.
Dave had also sold a few pages of art over the years when he was in need of money. He told me he had sold the original cover to Comico Chistmast Special because he needed cash to pay his income tax. \:\)

Many pages were recently sold from this story by the Estate - first in France and then through Albert Moy's website. The page was part of the recent sales. Albert still has a few if people are interested.

This story had assists from artists like Kaluta and Arthur Adams. The pages that haven't hit the market are from the first Rocketeer story although there are a couple pages that were given away that may be out there.

From the description, it sounds like you're referring to Jeff Gelb. Jeff was a long time friend of Dave's. So, if he was selling something, I'd tend to believe it was legit.

Laugh all you want at my prepping. Just don't be the first to knock on my door when the SHTF.

The name is Pym, Hank Pym and yes, I created Ultron.

The Mondo poster company has released a few Rocketeer prints in recent times too. They are all the comic Rocketeer with that version of the Rocket Pack. I like the movie version more myself.
