Rocketeer Creator Dave Stevens (1955-2008) R.I.P. Dave Stevens, creator of the Rocketeer, and the man almost single-handedly responsible for the "re-discovery" of Bettie Page, died March 10th after a long battle with leukemia. He was 52.

And I was fortunate to have met Mr. Stevens once at a convention in Dallas. He was gracious, humble, well-mannered...one of the nicest guys I've ever met. The biggest treat of his visit was a screening he personally hosted of the Disney film based on his creation. I consider myself blessed. We all are. He left us with some great work. Thanks, Dave.
