Greetings Loyal Airmen, we the start of Lent this past week, Spring is now within sight. Now there’s a cause for celebration. Meanwhile lots of things happening at Hangar 27 so let’s get cracking.
AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTION
We are thrilled to announce the release of our third Bulldog Drummond title, “Baited Hook” by writer I. A. Watson. This is of course his re-imagining the classic British pulp hero from the 1920 into today’s world and the stories of action packed from start to finish. This volume contains three such. Artist Howard Simpson not only returns to provide all the beautiful black and white interior illustrations, but he also turned in his first ever cover for us with this project. (above left) It is fantastic. The book now available at Amazon in both paperback on Kindle. As always, Loyal Airmen, thanks for your support.
BACK IN PRINT
Recently a reader wrote asking if we’d ever bring “The Mark of Terror” back in print. It was one of our early entries in our new adventures of Jim Anthony Super-Detective series. This was a novel length adventure by Joshua Reynolds, and for the past ten years had only been available in Kindle. Considering we had re-issue several other titles in print last year, the Air Chief & Rob talked it over and in the end Rob put together a new print edition, which is formatted slightly smaller than the original and thus cheaper on the price tag. We here at Hangar 27 aim to please. It is now up at Amazon, along with the Kindle version.
BEYOND THE STARS # 2
Artist Andrea Bormida finishes Pg # 19 of the second issue of our “Beyond the Stars” series. Meaning he has only three more to go and the issue is completed. Whereas this will be the last sneak peek, as the last three pages are something special as all you Loyal Airmen will see when the book arrives. Stay tuned.
THE NEW GREEN GHOST COVER
We do love giving you Loyal Airmen sneak peeks when possible. So feast your eyes on the forthcoming cover to our second volume of “George Chance – The Green Ghost.” Several weeks ago artist Warren Montgomery wrote asking if he could do this cover. We’ve a new collection of stories waiting in the files. We’ve yet to find an artist to do the needed 12 interior illustrations. Still, the Air Chief saw no reason not to at least have a cover ready when we do. So we gave Warren the thumbs up. Above is the progress of that cover from composition to pencils to ink. Next will come the coloring and then Art Director Rob Davis will add the title logo etc. It should looks fantastic when completed. But first we’ve still got to find an artist to do the illustrations. Wish us luck.
ASH WED KICKED OFF LENT
Finally the season of Lent began this past Wed. Remember you are dust and unto dust you shall return. Ecclesiastes 3:20 Wishing all our brothers and sisters in Christ a beautiful prayerful Lent.
Take care and we’ll see you next week.
Ron – Over & Out!
