A filmmaker named John Banana is a big fan of the late Dave Stevens, the creator of the Rocketeer and an award-winning artist. (Trivia: He was the first recipient of Comic-Con International’s Russ Manning Most Promising Newcomer Award.) Before Disney turned it into a feature film in 1991, it was a retro-feeling comic book inspired by Saturday matinee idols. Banana was so moved by it that for the movie’s 20th anniversary, he created this computer-animated short that would, honestly, be kind of awesome as a full-length film.
