13 COVERS: A DAVE STEVENS Birthday Salute

The late artist was born 66 years ago…

The late Dave Stevens was born 66 years ago on July 29, 1955. He died far too young at 52 in 2008 but left behind a beloved body of work — most notably The Rocketeer, which seems to earn more passionate devotion and plaudits as every year passes.

Just last week, for example, we posted that IDW would be re-releasing Dave Stevens: The Rocketeer Artist’s Edition and reader response was as strong as expected. (Click here for those details.)

For this year’s 13 COVERS birthday salute, we’ve chosen from a selection of titles — many of which go beyond The Rocketeer.

Beautiful stuff.

  1. I knew he passed away, just not that young though. Damn what a shame.
