At the end of the 60's, the italian publishing company Atomic Rocket Comics commited itself to a full round artistic project, drawing esthetic inspiration from the most colourful styles coming from overseas and from the tradition of the national noir comic book genre, also known as "fumetto nero". Through the making of comic books and pitcure stories as well, and several gadgets too aimed at entertaining the readers, Atomic Rocket produced stories of masked super heroes and its content was very extreme and cruel, and it was made even more appealing by a fine esthetic choice.
Unfortunately, the religious and political organizations of that time found such products unbearable, because Atomic Rocket Comics started a real cultural fire and its impact on society was massive. And, alas, it was a real arson (a malicious one) to bring to a financial bankrupt the company, causing all the creative team involved in this project to disappear into anonymity, leaving behind themselves, in the years to follow, a trail of mistery. And nothing more. 
Years passed by, and suddendly, a bunch of collectors started tracking down the "Lost archives" of Atomic Rocket in order to revive the legend and making it available to the public once again. So they went and searched among the ruins and the remains of the publishing company's headquarters, and found evidence of it existence; and then they retrieved all of the material they managed to find in order to bring it out of the darkness where it had been buried in , and to show it once again to the fans, giving new glory to these amazing characters.

Alla fine degli anni ’60, la casa editrice ATOMIC ROCKET INC si dedicò ad un progetto artistico a tutto tondo, che percorreva i riferimenti educativi ed estetici in voga all’epoca riferendosi ai più colorati stilemi provenienti da oltre oceano ma anche alla tradizione nazionale del fumetto nero. Tramite la realizzazione di giornalini a fumetti e fotoromanzi, e una miriade di gadgets per la nascente industria dell’intrattenimento, produsse storie di super eroi mascherati dal contenuto estremo e crudele, il tutto legato da un gradevole senso estetico.
Purtroppo il perbenismo dominante nel nostro Paese ritenne insostenibile tale prodotto che aveva la forza e l’impatto di un vero e proprio incendio culturale. E fu proprio un incendio (doloso) ad innescare un tracollo economico che portò ad un rapido fallimento ed alla scomparsa nell’anonimato di tutto il team artistico, lasciando dietro di sé, negli anni a seguire, un alone di mistero. E nulla più.
A distanza di anni, un manipolo di collezionisti si è messo alla ricerca di materiale che potesse tener viva l’esistenza di questa leggenda editoriale. Avventuratisi tra ciò che rimane di quella casa editrice, sono riusciti a trovare prove di quello stimabile passato, riuscendo a recuperare dell’inestimabile materiale di quella serie di personaggi, che viene ora riproposto per farlo fuggire dalle nebbie dell’oblio, riportandolo al grande pubblico e alla dovuta gloria, per il piacere di nuove schiere di fans.
