The sky-scorching, action-packed finale!
Cliff is behind enemy lines and face-to-face with a full flying complement of Nazi Rocketmen!
As if this wasn’t bad enough, he, along with Peevy and Betty, have to spoil the Nazi’s last dirty trick – an AMERIKABOMBER, a prototype long-range transport, equipped and crammed with a squadron of enhanced Rocketmen, each armed with miniature rocket-propelled bombs… targeting New York!
SciFiPulseStephen Mooney does a solid job of bringing Den of Thieves to a satisfying conclusion and manages to give a bit of character growth to Cliff and Betty as we see them on a more equal footing. Overall this is a great ending for the story, but also a great foundation to build future adventures on.
The Super Powered FancastThe Story: Mooney brings this story to a brilliantly thrilling and exciting conclusion. The story is pure action and adventure throughout and has a fantastic level of tension that kept me on the edge of my seat with each page and panel. I absolutely loved the story and how fun and exciting it is. Another brilliant story that pays tribute to the world created by Dave Stevens. The Art: Messina’s art is powerful, beautifully detailed and dynamic. The action is cinematic in every possible way and drew me into every suspense filled moment.
COMICONAnyone complaining that the Rocketeer has been missing from this miniseries will have plenty to cheer about in this concluding issue. But the ending comes a little too suddenly and leaves a lot to be desired.

ComicBook.comThe Rocketeer: In the Den of Thieves has been a fun series to read, but issue #4, like the previous one, spends a lot of its real estate just adding some window dressing that doesn't push things along. Writer Stephen Mooeny does finally get the story to a place where it delivers a big fight that Rocketeer fans will love, expertly put together by artist David Messina. Messina not only continues his tradition of fun paneling but also staging the action beats to be clear and precise. The end of the issue is a major surprise though as it concludes the entire storyline, doing so in a way that will leave readers wondering, 'wait, that was it?'.
