MORE NOSTALGIA25 Nov | '2022
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.
BEYOND THE STARS # 2
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!
