Greetings Loyal Airmen, as you read this, we are only hours away from packing up our comics and pulps for our trip to Denver this year’s Rocky Mountain Con. Happily we’ll be tagging along with our good friends, Olivia and Zane Degaine. Both are talented writer/artists who first met at the Joe Kubert School of Graphic Illustration back in New Jersey. Ever since they moved here to Fort Collins, Val and the Air Chief have truly enjoyed their friendship. In fact the Air Chief and Olivia started the Raizee the Ram comic series, “The Wooden Blade” together of which issue # 2 was just released from their Pulp Fusion comic line.
Meanwhile in the intervening years, Zane had confessed his desire to do a western comic. Something that has always appealed to the Air Chief as well. Then last year, while a guest at Todd Jones’ first ever Wicked West Comic Expo, we did a panel in which we, and the folks in attendance, whipped up an actual proposal for a western comic series to be called “Hamlet’s End.”
So hang on to your hats, western fans. HAMLET’S END by yours truly and artist Zane Degaine will be coming your way as a mini-series early in 2023. Wahoooo!!!
THE BOSTON BOMBERS Vol Two
The action heats up in Chapter One of THE BOSTON BOMBERS Vol 2 – We can’t say enough good things about artist Rob Davis’ amazing work on this project. Out humble script jumps off the pages with his dynamic artwork. Just beautiful, page for page.
BEYOND THE STARS # 2
Artist Andrea Bormida delivers the final colors to Pg # 15 of BEYOND THE STARS # 2. As always, Andrea is knocking it out of the part. Our space saga rolls along. Can’t wait to see all these pages after letterer Mike Belcher gets a hold of them. Oh, yeah.
Finally we know the holiday season is upon us, but you know what Loyal Airmen, there is such a thing as rushing your life away. Store retailers need to learn some restraint and let us shoppers relax a wee bit between these events. As the cartoon above makes fun. Still life is way too short. Let’s take time to truly appreciate it.
Ron – Over & Out!!
