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, as you can see above, the Air Chief got in his copies of “The Adventures of Radio Rita” this past week and couldn’t be more delighted. From an kooky idea, to a 1940s pin-up picture and ultimately a grand old pulp hero, Rita’s road to her debut was anything but usual. Now that the book is finally out, with four amazing stories by Mel Odom, Gene Moyers, Samantha Lienhard and Teel James Glenn, we really hope you Loyal Airmen will give it a look. It is of course available now at Amazon in both paperback and on Kindle.  And yes, we are happy to say, there will be a second volume. Clear the runway, Loyal Airmen, here comes Radio Rita!



As so many of you Loyal Airmen know, our professional comics writing career was launched when artist Jeff Butler and the Air Chief produced The Green Hornet comic series for the now defunct Now Comics. Well these days, Jeff keeps super busy teaching art at a local college near his home. But he also finds time to do private commissions for fans who, like us, love his work and would love to own an original Jeff Butler drawing. You can cut find him on line at this link.Just cut and paste it to your search engine and off you go. ( The piece of above is one he did for a good friend of our back in New Hampshire.



Two more colored pages from issue # 1 of “Jin & Tonik” by the amazing Matt Webb over artist Cesar Feliciano’s beautiful drawings. Really, really getting excited about this comic project.

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