Greetings Loyal Airmen, well we’ve another great Airship 27 anthology to show off this week. But before we do that, here’s a final pix from last week’s beautiful wedding of our granddaughter, Cora and her now husband Calvin.
Believe us when we say hundreds of photos and videos were taking during that truly wonderful day. But the Air Chief had to share the one above upon seeing it. The latest member of our family, Boomer, was not excluded from the festivities and was with us all day long. In the reception hall he became a huge star with all the little children there, never mind lots of the adults as well. He was so loving and well behaved we are extremely proud of him. And this shot of him with Cora and Calvin is precious. Again, we had to share it with you.
AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTION
With the release of last week’s “The Challenger Chronicles Vol 1″ and now we have “Mars McCoy – Space Ranger Vol 3″ out as well, it seems the log jam has finally broken at Airship 27. Fingers crossed you’ll be seeing two more very shortly. Meanwhile this great collection featuring our space opera hero Mars McCoy features five fantastic stories. One each from writers Russ Anderson, Robert J. Mendenhall, Wayne Carey and two by John Bear Ross. Artist Daniele Danbrenus Spezzani provides the black and white interior illustrations (ala above right) and Michael Youngblood the gorgeous color cover (above left). If you’re a fan of Star Wars, Star Trek, Flash Gordon etc. we think you’ll really enjoy the adventures of Mars McCoy. Again available at Amazon in paperback and soon on Kindle. As ever Loyal Airmen, thanks for your support.
THE BOSTON BOMBERS Vol 2 Issue # 2
The biggest challenge to both writers and artists of comics, are the “talking-head” scenes. Obviously we’d all like every page of a comic to be filled with tons of visual action. But alas, in telling a “complete” story, there are required scenes to carry the narrative along. What we called “spear carriers” during a play. Our blessing is working with gifted artist like Rob Davis who are skillful enough to make even a “talking-head” scene look both dramatic and beautiful. Thanks, pal.
BEYOND THE STARS Issue # 3
After a brief hiatus working on other comic projects, artist Andrea Bormida is back doing roughs for Pages 13 & 14 of our BEYOND THE STARS # 3 for Silverline Press. Keep in mind, each issue of this six part mini-series is 22 pages long. Meaning after he finishes these two, he only has 8 page to go before wrapping it up and reaching the half-way mark in our saga. Stay tuned. Lots more great sci-fi action is coming your way.
And that’s it for this week, Loyal Airmen. As ever, thanks for much for stopping by and God willing, we’ll see you back here next Friday morning.
Ron – Over & Out!
