    King of the Rocket Men Serial Poster (Republic, 1949). The inspiration for Dave Stevens' Rocketeer came from right here -- the iconic one sheet poster for Republic's greatest Sci-Fi serial, King of the Rocket Men. A twelve chapter serial starring Tristram Coffin and Mae Clarke, this is the serial that introduced the "Rocketman" and his flying space suit, which would appear in three more serials. This dramatic poster introduced the serial, with a wonderful image of the Rocketman blasting off. The 27" x 41" poster had some minor condition problems including stains and tack holes that have been nicely addressed by a professional, and it appears in Very Fine condition now. It's been framed with Plexiglas to an overall 29" x 42.75". From The Art of the Funnies Collection.
