Greetings Loyal Airmen, we are dispatching this Flight Log Entry a day early because tomorrow the Air Chief and artist partner Rob Davis will be in Pittsburgh attending this year’s annual Pulp Fest convention. Hoping to see lots of our old pals that we haven’t seen in a few years. We love this con and are glad to be going back to it. Meanwhile are a few things that have come to fruition since last week’s entry.
Meanwhile we finally got our own copies of the new Zorro anthology, “Zorro’s Exploits” from Bold Venture Press. The Air Chief has a story in it, and Rob Davis illustrated one of the 17 stories as well. It is a really great collection and is available now at Amazon in paperback and on Kindle. Check it out.
THE WOODEN BLADE # 2
We are excited to show you the first few completed pages of “The Wooden Blade” #2 continuing the sword and sorcery adventures of Raizee the Ram. Script by yours truly with truly wonderful art by Olivia De Gaine. Olivia hopes to have the issue finished, printed and available to the world at this year’s Rocky Mountain Con in Denver come the start of of Nov. Wahooo!
MR. JIGSAW RETURNS
After too long a time, we’re delighted to announce the 17th issue of Mr. Jigsaw Man of a Thousand Parts is nearing completion. Artist Gary Kato has finished all 24 interior pages plus this nifty new cover (above at left). All that remains now is for Rob Davis to add the logo etc. and then scan the pages and send it off to Ka-Blam in Florida for printing. Once done, it will also be available from (www.Indy Planet.com) like all previous issues. The real fun of this story was our getting to bring back Winnie the Witch, who for several years was a comic host for many of Charlton Comics horror titles. Seeing Jiggy got his start at Charlton, we thought it only fitting that we bring her back in this tale. If you fans like what we’ve done with her, you can expect us to keep around. Soon as the issue is finished and available, you’ll know about right here.
BOOKS BEING SHIPPED NOW!
Issues “Beyond the Stars” #1 are going out. To all of you that supported our Kickstarter Campaign, thank you so much. One such friend posted this picture of getting his copy today. Wahooo. Please, when you get your copy, give us some feedback after you’ve read it.
Ask and you will receive. Comic Fan Billy Henning writes. “I was able to contribute a little bit to one of my writing hero’s new projects and I finally got my issue yesterday! I read it last night and it’s FANTASTIC. Ronald Fortier, you’ve still got it, my friend. And that ending! Got to love surprise twist endings. Can’t wait to see what their marriage was like! Keep writing, Ron, I’ll keep reading!!!”
BOSTON BOMBERS Vol 2
Rob Davis delivers page # 8 of issue # 1 of “The Boston Bombers” Vol 2. As ever his art is gorgeous and attention to detail amazing.
And there you have this week’s Flight Log, Loyal Airmen, coming to you early. The Air Chief is off to Pulp Fest early tomorrow morning. Then we’ll be right back here next week as always. Thanks so much for stopping by.
Ron – Over & Out!
