Greetings Loyal Airmen, lots of fun things happening this week. Let’s get to it.
The Air Chief is always writing new adventures of space Captain Jain Marlee, a rouge and smuggler. The latest called GHOST WORLD, was begun over a year ago by an artist named McShane. Unfortunately for various sound reasons, he had to bow out of the project and we turned to the inker, Ariel Aguire to complete the strip. Ariel and the Air Chief go back a long-long way and he’s a great guy and dependable creator. So last evening, after a long hiatus, we found our in-box filled with all kinds of sketches and page compositions. Above is one of the pages and some designs Ariel did up for Marlee’s space hauler. Everything he sent in was gorgeous and we’re extremely excited this project is finally going to get finished. We’ll keep you all posted.
As this week’s topic title states, the Air Chief is teaching his ten week course on How To Write Comics & Graphic Novel at the Front Range Community College here in wonderful Fort Collins. Our lovely grand-daughter Cora volunteered to show you the syllabus folder done up for the class by the Director of the Continuing Adult Education program of which our class is a part; Mrs. Laurie Rue. Had our first class this past Tuesday and my students are excited and ready to learn this crazy world of comic creating.
As of this past week, our 201st Airship 27 Productions title is released. “Behowls The Moon,” is an historical horror novel by Philip McCormac. It deals with the Irish 1918 Easter Rebellion and among the Irish resistant is a werewolf. Really great, pulp tale with interior illustrations by Rob Davis and a truly mind-boggling cover by Steve Otis, as you can see above. As ever available from Amazon in both paperback and soon on Kindle. Thanks so much for your continued support, Loyal Airmen.
And there you have this week’s Flight Log. As you are reading this, Valerie and the Air Chief will be in Cheyenne Wyoming for the all week-end Chey-Fy Comic Expo where we’ll be a guest. Looks to be a great show. Hopefully we’ll have some pictures to show you next week.
Ron – Over & Out!
