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 73, 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.

On the comic front we are thrilled to let you know that BLACK LION # 3 is finally available for purchase from Indy Planet. (  Note 1 & 2 are there as well, while we are busy putting together fourth and final issue. Stay tuned.


And finally, coming just under the wire to get this posted today, we have Airship 27’s second title of the year, RUNEMASTER – Shield Maiden’s Blade by writer Mike Bullock. This is Mike’s first work for us and we hope it isn’t the the last. Artist Christ Nye provided the nine interior illustrations with painter Steve Otis turning in that amazing cover. All in all, a great read if you like the old style sword and sorcery action adventure ala the great Robert E. Howard. Again, you can find this at Amazon in both paperback and on Kindle. Looking like 2021 is starting to shape up quite nicely. Til next week, be well and stay safe,

Ron – Over & Out!
