Greetings Loyal Airmen and welcome to our Christmas Eve Flight Log. Before we look into the regular fun things that have occupied us this past week, the Air Chief would like to take a moment to share with all of you how wonderfully reflective the past Advent season has been for us. We have been eagerly awaiting the birth of our savior Jesus Christ who on this night of nights broke into history to become one of us. He did this to save all of us and free us from the chains of sin. On this Holy Night we give thanks. Millions of Catholics around the world will be attending Midnight services. Whereas Valerie and the Air Chief are looking forward to going to church tomorrow morning.
We will be celebrating with our fellow parishioners at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church here in Fort Collins, CO. We’ve been members of this 1,500 families community since moving here. Named for St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first American born saint and found of the the Catholic Parochial School system of which we were both a part while growing up. The building itself was renovated last year and is a beautiful place of worship.
After much deliberating, a few months ago the Air Chief stepped forth and volunteered to be a Lector and our first time behind that podium (to the left in the picture above) to read scripture will be at 10 a.m. tomorrow morning, Christmas Day! We feel so blessed and honored. All of you will be in our prayers at this service. Praying that God blesses you and all your loved ones with his unending love.
BEYOND THE STARS
Artist Andrea Bormida has finished Pg # 1 and Pg # 3 of our first issue of “Beyond The Stars.” Moving left to right above, from his first composition and layout of the three panels, to final inking of each and lastly the coloring that brings it all together.
On Pg # 3 we meet the All Mother, one of our main characters. She’s caught up in a horrible nightmare seeing a Black Cloud devouring galaxies as it moves through space. All that remains for these two pages are the lettered captions that will be added by Mike Belcher. Meanwhile, Andrea moves on to Pg # 2.
Less all you Loyal Airmen think everyone one of our ventures meets with immediately, glorious success, we just wanted to mention how mildly disappointed we remain that we’ve unable to find an artist to commit to our 130 pg Brother Bones graphic novel. The story that tells his complete origin. Above are his first solo appearance in comics plus two other short tale appearances.
Considering his popularity in the prose novels and anthologies and even his own Role Playing Module, it remains a puzzle we’ve yet been able to solve. We’d like to believe we just haven’t met the right artist yet.
JIN & TONIK
Artist Cesar Feliciano delivered Pg # 19 of our “Jin & Tonik” comic project this week. It’s above to left next to an earlier pin-up sketch he’d done of our girl, the biologically enhanced Darya. We are so loving these pages.
