Greetings Loyal Airmen and welcome to our first blog of 2019. Kind of hard to believe just how fast the years are rolling past us. The Air Chief’s mom, who herself is now 94, would always tells growing up that time would accelerate as we got older and now we’re realizing she was all too right. But still, no matter its speed, life continues to bring with it new challenges, wonders and above all else adventures. One of these being a new comic book project the Air Chief is working on: JIN & TONIK.
The story is about two of the world’s deadliest assassins, Sammy Jin Zhu and Darya Tonikova. The idea itself was hatched by a truly amazing artist, Cesar Feliciano. Now Cesar and the Air Chief never worked together but were all too aware of each other on social networks. Thus when Cesar came to us last year asking if we liked to work on this idea with him, we didn’t take two seconds to reply “YES!” he is an incredible creator and when he told us the general plot and described the two main characters, we were totally hooked.
To date Cesar has begun some preliminary sketches, both in pencil only and others he has completed to full inks. He’s trying to find a specific style that will suit this spy-assassin thriller. Obviously it is clear to see, Darya has quickly become one of his favorites.
Meanwhile the Air Chief has completed chapter one and is hard at work on chapter two. Once we have an issue ready ready to go, we will most likely be seeking funding via one of the many programs available to us on-line. The Air Chief is leaving that to Cesar. Hopefully we’ll be able to offer all you Loyal Airmen something truly special and different enough for you to want to support our efforts. We’re still a ways away from that point, but it is never too early to start the Promotion Machine. Thus this blog and all these amazing pieces. Enjoy. We’ll certainly keep you posted.
On reflection, it has been a long time since this Air Chief has been this excited about a comic project. Guess we’re still got some stories to tell.
Ron – Over & Out!
