Greetings Loyal Airmen, first up a review of a new sci-fi remake.
We first read DUNE as a high school student and fell in love with it. In fact it is one of the few books we’ve read multiple times over the years. And we’ve enjoyed both the David Lynch film version and the made-for-TV interpretations. The Air Chief just watched part one of director Denis Villeneuve’s expanded version and loved it start to finish. The additional scenes he wrote fit in beautifully with Herbert original tale and the cast, led by Timothee Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson & Oscar Isaac are perfect for their roles. Will most likely watch again later in the coming week. Magnificent classic retold. Thumbs way, way up.
We’re happy to announce that once again we’ll be guest at the Rocky Mountain Con happening in Denver Nov 6th-7th. Here is the ad posted across the internet by our friend and promoter Tim Moret. “We at Rocky Mountain Con are excited to announce Ron Fortier Will be joining us Nov. 6th & 7th. Ron is an American author, primarily known for his Green Hornet and The Terminator comic books and his revival of the pulp hero, Captain Hazzard. Early in his career he also wrote short stories and co-authored two novels for TSR. In 2017 Fortier was the recipient of the Pulp Factory’s first Pulp Grand Master Award. Get your tickets to meet Ron and all the other amazing guest at this years show!”
Pretty nice write-up. Thanks so much, Tim. And here’s hoping to see many of your Loyal Airmen in Denver that weekend.
Finally artist Cesar Feliciano continues to draw our graphic novel thriller JIN & TONIK. Above is a panel from pg # 12 which he is currently bringing to life. The amount of detail Cesar puts in each panel is truly amazing and he so wonderfully captures the emotion of the scene before what any writer could ask for it. It is joy to be working with this talented artist.
And there you have it for this week, Loyal Airmen. As ever thanks for stopping by and we’ll see you back here next Friday.
Ron – Over & Out!
