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.

It always amazes me how much we all rely on computers today. In one lifetime, the world has be come so dependent on these machines that when they do break down, as all machines do every now and then, we’ seem to suffer beyond reason. And the Air Chief finds himself in sad state of affairs as our own PC crashed last week and is now out being repaired. Leaving us to do our best with Valerie’s laptop. Thank God we had. Okay, enough whining, on to this week’s Flight Log.


You’ll recall how last week we gave you Loyal Airmen a peek at some of the titles on the way to include SHERLOCK HOLMES – Consulting Detective Vol 13 and how artist Michael Youngblood’s cover would be an homage to the late Sydney Paget. Well take a look at that very cover now in progress above. Michael is doing a fantastic job. Fingers crossed once he wraps it up, the actually book should be out a few days later.


Now for the latest on the newest comic edition of FRONT RANGE TALES. This is the comic the Air Chief puts together using scripts from his How to Write Comics class at the local community college. This past week artist Mike Belcher turned in the finished pages for student David Drasheff story “Under Pressure.” As ever Mike did a great job. See page one above.


Then a few days ago artist Luis Rivera send along this rough composition of the story he’s drawing for us based on Josh Green’s story. It’s going to be amazing. With fingers crossed we should have the book out in mid Feb.

And that’s our news for this week Loyal Airmen.  Hopefully next week we will be announcing our firs title release of the year.  Talk to you then.

Ron – Over & Out!
