Dave Stevens

Nationality: American

Birth Place: Lynwood, CA

Biography:
Dave Stevens (American, 1955 -2008): was an American illustrator and comics artist most famous for creating The Rocketeer comic book and film character, and for his pin-up style "glamour art" illustrations, especially of model Bettie Page.

Famously meticulous with his artwork, Stevens produced few comic books beyond "The Rocketeer," which was adapted as a feature film in 1991. Stevens remained very visible on the art scene with his many glamour illustrations, contributions to art books and private commissions.

He was the first to win Comic-Con International's Russ Manning Most Promising Newcomer Award in 1982, and received both an Inkpot Award and the Kirby Award for Best Graphic Album in 1986
