Greetings Loyal Airmen, we’re going to start this week’s Flight Log with a look at a few comic projects and where they are at production wise.
THE CRIMSON NUN
Artist Jesse Thomas is hard at work on issue # 1 as the page above beautifully demonstrates. This is the first time the Air Chief has partnered with Jesse and we are thrilled with his talent and storytelling skills in display in his composition and panel layouts. Can’t wait to see it all finalized and colored.
BEYOND THE STARS # 3
Meanwhile artist Andrea Bormida is turning in more amazing pages for issue # 3 of our space saga. Keeping in mind, this is a six-issue series, with the publishing of this issue, we’ll have reached the half way mark of our tale. Can’t thank you Loyal Airmen enough for supporting us right from the start.
AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTION
One of the things we love in publishing New Pulp is the range of titles people bring us. Last year the Air Chief was contacted by two first time writers from New England who had a book to submit called “The Return of the Crimson Howl.” Writers Paul Landri and Jason Clark’s plot resolves around a group of retired super-heroes who, after World War II, gave up their crime-fighting. One of them is savagely found murdered, the FBI agents on the case set up interviewing the old heroes. Once we’d accepted the book for publication, the Air Chief recruited artist Sam Salas to do the spot illustrations for the project. But before starting, Sam opted to do several full color pin-ups of the main characters to get a feel for his illustrations and has allowed us to share them. Above left to right are, The Crimson Howl, The Swami and The Human Bullet. This is one action packed thriller and we think when ready, you Loyal Airmen are going to love. Stay tune for more updates.
And that’s it for this week. Thanks ever for stopping by and we’ll see you back here next Friday.
Ron – Over & Out!
