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, last week we showcased the wonderful Comic Crusader Omnibus we had just purchased which collected all the great issues of this truly wonderful fanzine created and published by the last Martin Greim. Well, lo and behold, the mailman once again brought us another giant sized book written and assembled by Jon B. Cooke for TwoMorrows Publishing that details the entire history of Charlton Comics.


The book features a cover by Joe Staton, co-creator of E-man. Inside Chapter 16 you’ll find pictures of a very young Air Chief and his artist partner Gary Kato along about the time we had given Charlton our lovable comedy super-hero, Mr. Jigsaw Man of a Thousand Parts. It’s all there, our reminiscing about those early days when we breached the walls of comicdom with raw talent and a dream that wouldn’t die. Hope you go to Amazon and pick up a copy.

Meanwhile artist Andrea Bormida has completed the pencils, inks and colors to issue to Pg !5 of BEYOND THE STARS # 2. He’s so making this issue even better than the first. We kid you not.

Whereas yesterday was Thanksgiving, it is our fondest wish that all our Loyal Airmen had a wonderful holiday with friends and family. Val and the Air Chief had a great day with lots of good food. We started our day with attending mass and giving thanks to God for all our many blessings. Among those are all you Loyal Airmen who have made our career such a joy. Take care and we’ll see you back here next Friday.

Ron – Over & Out!
