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.

A devoted grandfather of six, at 75, 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, in another week or so, Valerie and the Air Chief will be off to Florida to visit family and enjoy the warm sunshine and beaches. A real get-away vacation from the cold and winter here in Colorado. But before then, we’ve still tons of good stuff coming way, ala our latest Airship 27 release.

STRONG ADVENTURES was written by Tyler Aufhammer and features his new pulp hero, Harvey Strong. Sort of an Indiana Jones kind of adventurer. The book features three of his stories and the cover and interior illustrations (above) were all handled by artist Ron Hill. Book is now available at Amazon in both paperback and on Kindle. As always, Loyal Airmen, thanks so much for your support.



Artist Rob Davis continues his stunning work on issue # 2 of The Boston Bombers Vol 2. At one point in the script, female priest Mother Jordan Pirelle is summoned to meet a black Bishop. In our script we suggested to Rob that he use actor Morgan Freeman as his model. As you can see by the two panels above left, Rob once again delivered beautifully.



We just had a short story accepted by Pulp Adventures. It features, with his permission, writer Percival Constantine’s character, Myth Hunter Elisa Hill. His Myth Hunter books are all available at Amazon. Last we looked there were six of them.

Artist Andrea Bormida continued to work up beautiful pages for issue # 4 as seen above while the funding campaign for issue # 3 is coming to a speedy end. As of today, we only need $539 to reach our goal. The campaign ends Monday 4th of March. ( Thanks for your support, Loyal Airmen.



Artist Javier Lugo has begun roughing out the pages to issue # 1 of our CHIVARLY, INC. That’s Javier above and our gal. Now below are Javier’s roughs. Sorry they are so light.

Hopefully you Loyal Airmen can see how much work has gone into these pencils and how they are going to rock once inked and colored. Javier (that’s him above) and the Air Chief hooked up ages ago on a short 16 pg vampire comic based on a small budget independent film and had a great time. Over those intervening years, his art has matured greatly and this comic will easily be his best work yet. Stay tuned Loyal Airmen, Chivalry Inc. is on its way.

And that’s it for this week, Loyal Airmen.  Again, let me remind you, we need $539 before Monday to get issue # 3 of BEYOND THE STARS funded. The link is above. Please, over the next few days help us spread the word and get this over the top. Thanks ever.

Ron – Over & Out!
