The iconic Rocketeer "Bullseye" art was created by Dave Stevens in 1982. It was featured on the back cover of the Rocketeer comic book's first issue. This Rocketeer puzzle features the amazing talent of award-winning colorist Laura Martin and is a Zoop exclusive. It's a high-quality item featuring 500 generously-sized and easy-to-handle pieces printed on extra-thick and sturdy paper stock with a high-gloss finish that won't easily bend. The pieces come in a mesh bag enclosed in a sturdy deluxe custom box with a magnetic closure. The puzzle measures 75x 50cm, or approx. 20" x 30", when completed.
Jennifer says "I am in the process of putting together my sample puzzle. What I didn’t anticipate, and quite frankly, surprised me, was how intimate a look I got into Dave’s creative process and the detail involved in this piece. One little puzzle piece had a loop on it. I never noticed that the Mauser handle had a loop at the bottom of it. Dave used a lot of criss-crosses for shadowing on the jacket. And he used quite a bit of Zip-a-tone for the shadowing of the Griffith Observatory Art Deco architecture. This puzzle being so large in scale makes all of these minute details come to life in contrast to a smaller-scale comic book. I already knew that Dave was a master at his craft, but this gives me a greater appreciation for sure."
Jennifer says "The Rocketeer 'Bullseye' t-shirt hasn't been made since the 1980s. It's past time for a new one!"
The Rocketeer’s creator Dave Stevens has influenced a generation of artists, and now fans can experience the character in this new puzzle format. Jennifer Stevens-Bawcum, the sister of Dave Stevens and the trustee of the Rocketeer Trust, states "having waited a long time to see a Rocketeer puzzle come to fruition, the "Bullseye" art was an easy pick for the first one! The people at Zoop have been a pleasure to work with and they have outdone themselves in finding a quality puzzle company to fulfill this campaign!" We're beyond thrilled to work with Jennifer to honor the art and iconic character from Dave Stevens.Here are two pictures that Jennifer is generously sharing, which reinforce her writings about the nature of her relationship with her big brother. She says "one is of us after Halloween; I'd gotten some wax horse teeth that he just had to play with. The other pic of Dave and I was taken less than a year before his death. He was still being a kid. I think this captures our essence."
2 lucky attendees who supported the Rocketeer campaign won the drawing for 2 beautiful Mondo prints right after the panel!
For everyone attending WonderCon, if you show up at the Zoop crowdfunding panel featuring Jennifer from the Rocketeer Trust this Saturday at 3:30pm in Room 208, you might have a chance to win a very special prize. What is it? You gotta show up to find out...
Wow! Over 50% funded on Day 1! Thank you to all of the fans who have turned up so far. We're so happy to be part of the anniversary celebration for such a beloved property as The Rocketeer. Such a rich history and classy people involved -- we're just trying to uphold the standards with the best looking campaign and products possible!
Please help spread the word so we can get to the funding goal quickly. Then we could start revealing a stretch goal or two!
Zoop does not store or keep your credit card info. Stripe simply holds the credit card info until the end of a successful campaign and then charges it. It is strictly for this one time use and won't charge it ever again.
We use Stripe for checkout because it is VERY secure. They exceed industry security standards and are trusted by thousands of companies, including Amazon, Lyft, Slack, Shopify, and Airbnb, who use Stripe's software tools to accept payments. Their interface is pre-made by them and we don't have the ability to augment it in any way. Once there, you have 15 minutes to complete the transaction by hitting the 'SAVE CARD' button.
If the campaign doesn't fund, your pre-order will be canceled, and the pending charge will disappear. You'll get an email confirmation with a summary of rewards and charges both after the initial pledge and after the actual charging of the card (try looking in your spam folder if you don't happen to see it in your inbox).
Please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get right back to you!
You could e-mail us at email@example.com with that info during the campaign if you'd like to get it out of the way. Otherwise, we'll be reaching out to all supporters of rewards that require feedback shortly after the campaign is over.
Our campaigns are for a worldwide audience unless stated otherwise in the campaign. All international orders are sold with the terms DAP (Delivered At Place). You are responsible for any duties and taxes required for the shipment's entry into your country. Our carriers may require you to pay taxes and fees related to importation and customs brokerage of your shipment -- but if your item is really low in value, it may fall under the customs de minimis of most countries. For more information, please contact USPS
Since we have an a la carte rewards system, shipping rates will vary from supporter to supporter. We use a weight-based calculation system in your checkout cart, though, so, after you enter your country, you'll be able to see it calculated in real time with each item you add.
If you want to make changes, you should first cancel your original order and then start over with a new one. If you don't do that and simply process an additional order, the way our system is currently set up you may end up being overcharged for shipping -- which we could remedy for you, but it just takes that extra step of catching it and crediting you back the extra shipping, so please try the prior way first.
No - this is it! We're essentially your in-campaign pledge manager. If you are interested in supporting these creators, this is the time to do it! And it's the exact reason we allow you to purchase as many rewards as you want during the campaign!
Rewards are the priority items that the creators have chosen for the campaign. Add-Ons are meant to be secondary items that are 'unlocked' after you buy something from the Reward level. There are no restrictions on buying Rewards, but you can only buy Add-Ons if you've bought a Reward. Zoop sets this up under the direction of the creators. Some may choose to only have Rewards, some may choose an even balance of Rewards and Add-Ons, and others may choose to only have one or two Rewards with the rest of the items being Add-Ons.
YES! We encourage you to get more than 1 item! That could be multiple copies of the same reward, or you can mix and match rewards! There is no limit, unless otherwise stated in the reward description.
