Greetings Loyal Airmen, while writing last week’s Flight Log, we attempted to list all the current comic projects the Air Chief is now involved with. Thus we listed ten. Only that was wrong and we’d forgotten one. Really, # 11 –
BROTHER BONES GRAPHIC NOVEL
After several years of now luck finding a talented artist to bring Bones’ original story to comics, our pal Joe Arnold signed on. And now months later, has begun doing actual page roughs and composition. Joe is really excited about the project and trust me, his enthusiasm is catchy. As ever, stay tuned. More of the Undead Avenger is on the way.
CN artist Jesse Thomas turned in the above uniform/color guide to our gun-blasting pulp hero. We love them. Hope to get back to finishing up script # 1 soon.
BEYOND THE STARS # 3
Artist Andrea Bormida delivers up the pencils to Pg # 5 of issue # 3. We aren’t going to preview as many pages for this and future issues as we did with 1 & 2. Lots of amazing surprises in story for you readers and we don’t want to spoil them. So stay tuned and buckle up. What’s coming is mind blowing!!
AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTION
After a long period of no new releases, we are delighted to announce the arrival of “The Silver Pentacle Vol 2″ by Nancy Hansen. This is the second in her series about a post apocalyptic world wherein a star being from beyond our universe comes to Earth to assemble a team of super beings in order to save and rebuild our world. It is great fantasy adventure and Colorado based artist Guy Davis provides both the beautiful cover (above left) and all nine of the black and white interior illustrations (one such above right). The book is now available from Amazon now in paperback and soon on Kindle. As ever, Loyal Airmen, we thank you for your continued wonderful support.
WORLD’S FINEST COLORADO STYLE
Early on in the history of DC Comics, the idea of teaming their two greatest heroes (Superman & Batman) and so they created the monthly title called, “World’s Finest.” Okay, so every Wednesday afternoon the Air Chief and his Official Protege, Todd Jones get together at the local comic shop for some coffee and comic talk with others of our friends. Imagine our surprise when we jumped into Todd’s car, wearing our Super man tee, to see he was sporting a Batman one. Yup, we both instantly shouted, “World’s Finest!” It’s fun folks, that’s what comics are all about.
JOE GOES YOU TUBE
As we started this Flight Log talking about Brother Bones and artist Joe Arnold it’s only fitting we end that way in a very cool fashion. Joe has taped himself sketching Bones and that video is now available at You Tube. Should you want to check it out, here’s the link. It’s a lot fun to hear Joe ramble as he discusses the Undead Avenger. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fElP_X5bjr0)
And that’s it for this week, Loyal Airmen. Been a busy week and we like it that way. As ever thanks for dropping by and we’ll see you back here next Friday.
Ron – Over & Out!
