Greeting Loyal Airmen, hope all of you are doing great these days. We’ve a lot of fun news this week, so let’s get to it.
BOSTON BOMBERS Volume Two!
After thirty years, the second volume of “The Boston Bombers” has finally arrived. Last week, artist Rob Davis finished all thirty pages and that nifty cover (above left) and sent the file off to Ka-Blam printers in Florida. When the book is officially available from their on-line store (www.IndyPlanet.com) we will notify all you Loyal Airmen of that fact and send along a link. Meanwhile, for those of you who still have not read Volume One, (cover above right) we highly suggest you go to either Indy Planet or Amazon to pick up a copy. Volume Two picks up where One left off, so without One, it really won’t be as much to read. Dang…thirty years!! Where did the time go?
Speaking of Rob’s Redbud studio, the good folks at Indy Planet have finally listed Mr. Jigsaw # 18 for sale. For those of you still want to go there and pick up a copy. Here’s the link. (https://www.indyplanet.com/mr-jigsaw-18)
JIN & TONIK
After a long hiatus working on lots of other projects, colorist-supreme, Matt Webb returns to our “Jin & Tonik” series with the page above. The first to introduce Darya Tonikova. The art is of course by concept co-creator Cesar Feliciano. This is coming out so fantastic. Thanks ever, Matt.
AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTIONS
This week Airship 27 Production continues to rev its releases with two more fantastic titles for all you Loyal Airmen. The first is a spy thriller from writer Lee Houston Jr. featuring his new character, Solitaire. This is the first of a brand new series by Lee. Artist Chuck Bordell provides the nine interior illustrations and the always amazing Ted Hammond the cover.
Nest up is one of the weirdest pulp mash-ups ever, “Blood-Spiller Quarry” by writer Michael Panush. Michael’s last book for us was the recent Dead Sheriff entry. This time, Michael’s launching a series called “Stone Law” dealing with per-historic man. So think caveman-murder-mystery and you’ve an idea what this one is about. Handling all the chores, both interior illos and cover (with coloring assist by Rob Davis) is artist Earl Geier. Earl first work with Airship 27 back in our early days, doing the illustrations for writer Michael Vance’s great horror anthologies. As always, both of these fantastic new titles are available from Amazon in paperback and on Kindle. And as ever, thanks so much for your continued support, Loyal Airmen.
We recently did a short little on-line interview for a Denver based outfit that focuses on inspirational models in Colorado communities. Needless to say the Air Chief was both humbled and honored by being asked to participate. To see it, simply cut and paste this link.

KEVIN & MEL IN LONDON
Finally we wanted to share these great pictures with all of you. Our daughter-in-law, Melanie, is a marathon runner and a few months back, just prior to King Charles’ coronation, London held it’s annual marathon. So off to Merry Old England went Mel and son Kevin. Mel enjoyed the race and course, but when it came to sight seeing she appreciated all the Harry Potter sites and Kevin had to stop and take a pix alongside the great detective Sherlock Holmes. The Air Chief is so envious. Ha. It was a week long trip and they had a blast.
And there you have it for this week, Loyal Airmen, as ever, thanks for stopping by and we’ll see you all back here next Friday.
Ron – Over & Out!
