Welcome to Airship 27

My name is Ron Fortier, and I have been a professional writer for over forty-five years. I have worked on comic book projects such as The Hulk, Popeye, Rambo and Peter Pan. With my two most popular comic series being The Green Hornet and The Terminator (with Alex Ross). With Ardath Mayhar I penned two TSR fantasy novels, and in 2001 I had my first play, a World War II romantic comedy, produced.

This site serves as a portfolio of the work I’ve done to date, as a showcase for projects in the works, and as home for my online Journal (below), which will be updated frequently.

I am currently writing and producing pulp novels and short stories for various publishers and have several movie scripts floating around Hollywood looking for a home, and if that isn’t enough, I also have a review column at the website.

Get the latest news, post your comments, questions, or just say hi at my online forum.

A devoted grandfather of six, at 71, I am thrilled to be part of the new web-comic evolution. Part of this joy is in the realization of a life long dream, that of becoming a pulp writer.

Thanks for visiting, and enjoy your stay.

Greetings Loyal Airmen, and here we go with another round of what’s happening around Hangar 27. Ever since starting Airship 27 Productions, the Air Chief and Art Director Rob Davis had brought forth all kinds of cool swag with the company logo, which Rob designed by the way.  We’ve done lots of hats in the past, but they were all those using iron-ons and for the longest time we’d hoped to see one with our beloved Zeppelin actually embroidered. Well, at long last and thanks to an outfit called the Queensboro Shirt Company out of Wilmington, N.C. we finally have one. The Air Chief couldn’t wait to put it on. And we wondered, would any of you Loyal Airmen be up to purchasing one of these nifty hats? And how much would you be willing to pay for one? Let us know your thoughts and thanks.


A few years ago, at a Colorado comic con we met Green Hornet enthusiast who build his own custom Black Beauty. Frank even went so far as to have the Air Chief autograph the dashboard. Now Frank is bringing this gorgeous automobile up to Fort Collins this coming weekend to display at the Fort Collins Comic Con. Going to be great to see Frank and that amazing car once again.

As many of you know, after each How To Write Comics & Graphic Novels course we teach at the local Front Range Community College, we’ve do our best to produce a comic book written by our students and illustrated by some of the top professionals in the business. Whereas our last class, back in Winter of last year, had seven students, it was a challenge finding seven artists to help us out. The last script to find a home was written by Zane DeGaine, himself an artist, and happily a few months back recruited our old friend from Dario Carrasco, he agreed to help us out. Last week Dario turned in page # 1 of Zane’s six page story.  So with this one now in production, it is our hope that we will have the published FRONT RANGE TALES # 3 out within another month or so. All fingers crossed meanwhile.


Meanwhile the Air Chief hopes to kick off another 10 week course to kick off Tues night the 11th of Sept provided we can get at least 3 students to sign up. Anyone living in the Fort Collins, CO area in taking the class, above is the telephone of the Administrator to call for registering.

And that’s our Flight Log for this week Loyal Airmen.  As ever, thanks for stopping by and we’ll see you back here next Friday.

Ron – Over & Out!
