Greeting Loyal Airmen, we’re really excited to let you know our latest pulp title was released last weekend.
BASS REEVES – Frontier Marshal Vol 3 features a full length novella by R.A. Jones and two other stories by Mel Odom and Terry Alexander. All starring the most famous western lawman of them all, Bass Reeves. Reeves was an actual U.S. Deputy Marshal working under Judge Isaac Parker in the Oklahoma territories before it became a state. Coincidentally, all three writers in this volume are Oklahoman. If you like authentic western action adventure, then this is the book for you. As ever available from Amazon in paperback and on Kindle. The cover and all interior illustrations were provided by our own Art Director Rob Davis. We thank you for your support.
On the comic book front, several projects are moving along rather quickly. One of these being the new series the Air Chief is currently developing with artist Cesar Felicano, JIN & TONIC. Cesar just turned in the above illustrations of the two principle characters, Sammy Jin, a martial arts experts and Russian born Darya Tonikova, both skilled assassins. This is going to be an incredibly fun series and the Air Chief is just about to start writing the second chapter. We’ll keep you posted.
Whereas years ago, the Air Chief created a comic project called BULLDOZER that was never launched…for various reasons. Thus the notes and old artwork sat in our files collecting dust over the past 15 or so years. The image above to the left was one of those original pieces. We honestly don’t ever remember who the artist was that did it. Anyway, we recently dug the folder out of our files and showed it to our young artist pal, Jon Bonjour. Jon loved the entire concept and has signed on to be the artist. The sketch to the right is his first take on the main character and we love it. Happily the Air Chief kept a copy of the manuscript for issue # 1 and Jon will soon begin drawing it. Only goes to prove you should never throw away old ideas….ever.
And finally, with Thanksgiving behind us, it was time to bring out the Christmas tree. Valerie and granddaughter Cora once again did a great job. Seeing there lit up at night, puts all of us in the holiday spirit. Here’s wishing that same wonderful spirit to all you Loyal Airmen.
Ron – Over & Out!
