Greetings Loyal Airmen, we’ve got some exciting news as we’ve just released our first Airship 27 Productions pulp title of 2019!
Company of Shadows by Wayne Carey tells the story of Frank Blaine, a high school science teacher, who along with his teenage son, enjoys participating in Civil War re-enactments. While in Virginia for one such even, Frank begins to see the ghosts of actual soldiers who fought in that place. They are haunting him to reveal a secret buried for over a hundred years. Company of Shadows is a terrific read, with interior illustrations by Ed Catto and a gripping cover by Laura Givens. Now available from Amazon in both paperback and on Kindle. As ever, Loyal Airmen, thanks so much for your support.
On the comic book front, artist Cesar Feliciano has finished doing layouts for all 40 pgs ofr JIN & TONIK Chapter One, the mega graphic novel we are doing together. These are the first steps in producing pages. He lays out small thumbnails of each page, how panels to each and very loose sketching in each. Next step, the penciling of the actual pages.
Meanwhile artist Scott Lanzinski has reached inking and grayscale part of the 10 pg “Amanda Says” that we wrote. When done, this one will be popping up in various black and white anthologies, including a future issue of “Ron Fortier’s Tales of the Macabre.”
Next we have the new Captain Jain Marlee strip, “The Fugitive Prince” as illustrated by Richard Jun. 8 pgs of old fashion sci-fi action, now being lettered by the amazin Elisa St. John. As you can see, Ye Old Air Chief is keeping busy with all this fun stuff.
And the new class comic FRONT RANGE TALES is coming along nicely. Here’s the first page of student Evan Hundhausen’s “One Last Favor for Snooky” as illustrated by our pal, Gary Kato. This is shaping up to a really great issue.
And three you have it for this week, Loyal Airmen. As ever thanks for stopping by and we’ll meet you back here next week.
Ron – Over & Out!
