Greetings Loyal Airmen, well it looks like the New Year isn’t slowing up one bit as we’ve got lots of things to talk about today. So lets get rolling with a bit of humor.
Recently our grandson, Alex, has to register his truck and get new plates. No big deal, right. Then he goes to the DMV office and they hand him the plate above with the letters DWI. Ha. Alex has a wonderful sense of humor and took it all in stride. For the record, he doesn’t drink and is an excellent drive. Of course we in the family all got a good laugh when he we first saw his new plate. As Valerie always says, “You can’t make this stuff up.”
THE NEW BTS KICKSTARTER IS COMING!
As we’ve indicated in previous weeks, the Kickstarter campaign for the third issue of BEYOND THE STARS by yours truly, artist Andrea Bormida and letterer Mike Belcher will kick off on Feb. Again, this is the half way mark in this six part mini-series. Above right, are pencils for pg # 4 of issue # 4. Rest assured, Andrea is whipping them out fast as all of us are geared up to see the entire series completed and in your hands, Loyal Airmen. But as ever we can’t do that without your support. As of today the actual pre-campaign is at the Kickstarter site at the link below. Please, go to it and hit the NOTIFY ME button. The Air Chief would love to see at least 100 taps on that button before we launch. As ever, thanks for all your continued support. (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/silverlinecomics/bts3b2)
THE CRIMSON NUN
While artist Jesse Thomas continues his stellar work on THE CRIMSON NUN. Wow, just wow!!

Artist Cesar Feliciano continues to blow us away with the great coloring job he is doing on his pages for our new series JIN & TONIK. Last we looked, he’s only about ten pages left and then its on to lettering and Kickstarter. Stay tuned Loyal Airmen, you are going to love JIN & TONIK.
We’ve also been hyping another never before completed from our far away past, CHIVALRY, INC. A few weeks ago we plastered this page with illustrations of Valerie Chevalier by other artists who came and went on the project. Well today, this is something special. The official first poster for the Silverline Comics series coming your way as written by the Air Chief, Illustrated by Javier Lugo with letters by Mike Belcher and colors by Aiden Belcher. Note, Valerie lives in Montreal and that’s a hockey tee she’s wearing under her jacket. Can you guess which team? Stay tuned Loyal Airmen, we’ve Javier’s first pencils for this three issue mini-series and they are beautiful.
And that’s a wrap for this week, Loyal Airmen. As ever thanks for stopping by, and please spread the word about the new soon to start campaign for BEYOND THE STARS # 3!!
