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.

MYSTERY MEN ( & Women) Vol 5

8 Dec | '2017

Greeting Loyal Airmen, as we rush full tilt towards Christmas, we here at Hangar 27 are keeping as busy as ever doing out best to get out our last few projects of 2017.


Mystery Men ( & Women) Vol 5 out this week, is our 23rd release of the year. It features three great pulp adventures starting with the introduction of writer Gene Moyer’s new character THE SHRIKE in a full length novella.  She is spotlighted on the cover by the super talented Canadian artist Ted Hammond.  Then we have a new Nightbreaker tale by Thomas Deja from his popular Shadow Legion books and finally a Doc Atlas adventure by writers Michael Black and Ray Lovator.  Art Director Rob Davis provides the 12 interior black and white illustrations to make this one of our stellar titles ever.  Available at Amazon in both paperback and on Kindle.

Meanwhile as we’ve mentioned Doc Atlas, here’s some other great news.  Doc Atlas is the creation of writers Michael Black and Ray Lovato, childhood pals who grew up loving pulp fiction.  They created Doc Atlas years ago as their homage to the classic heroes ala Doc Savage, Jim Anthony and Captain Hazzard. Since then they’ve written a half dozen Doc Atlas adventure that have been published via various publisher.  But as of 2018, Doc Atlas will be exclusive to Airship 27 Productions. We’ve entered into a mutually beneficial agreement with these talented writers in which they have agreed to produce one new Doc Atlas book (be it a collection of shorts or full length novel) each year exclusively through Airship 27.  Believe me when we say, we couldn’t be happier. You Loyal Airmen are going to be getting some really great New Pulp fiction from these two amazing writers.

As we always love to show off new artwork, here’s a penciled page from a new Captain Jain Marlee Space Smuggler story we wrote called Ghost World. Our pal Ariel Aguire is inking it over another artist’s pencils and we thought you’d enjoy see how a great inker enhances a comic page.  Enjoy.  And finally, Rob and the Air Chief recorded episode # 34 of our monthly Airship 27 Podcast this evening.  Next week, once up on-line, we’ll post the link to it. And that wraps up this week’s Flight Log.  Now get out there and wrap up all your Christmas shopping.

Ron – Over & Out!
