Greetings Loyal Airmen, and welcome to this week’s Flight Log. One of things we writers have to do when putting together stories is, aside from telling the story of the main hero and villains, also created other characters who will play supporting roles in the tale. And that is really one of the pleasures the Air Chief gets, working with an artist to create these “other” figures.
Two such characters who will appear in the new JIN & TONIK, the Air Chief is doing with artist Cesar Feliciano is Lt. Foma Basanov, a Russian Intelligence Expert and Lt. Kiril Tonikova, a Spetsnaz Commando. Here is how Cesar envisioned them based on our description. Honestly, it was if he pulled them right out of our imagination. As this will be a long graphic novel, we can expect to see many supporting players such as this and we’ll gladly give you Loyal Airmen a peek whenever possible.
Meanwhile, the “other” Cesar the Air Chief is working with, that being Spain’s own Cesar Madaro turned in page of our western strip, “The Silent Gun.” We love his unique style of drawing the strip, when finished, is going to be something truly special.
And at long last, here is Airship 27 Productions’ latest anthology, AVIATION ACES Vol One, featuring flying adventures by writers Gene Moyers, Jeff Fournier, Andy Fix, Robert Ricci and Fred Adams Jr. Shane Evans of New Zealand provides the stunning cover and artist Howard Simpson the 12 black and white interior illustrations. If you’re a pulp fan of those old classic aviation heroes, this is the book for you, Loyal Airmen. As ever available from Amazon in paperback and soon on Kindle. Thanks for your support.
And there you have it for this week, Loyal Airmen. As ever, thanks for stopping by.
Ron – Over & Out!
