Welcome to Airship 27

My name is Ron Fortier, and I have been a professional writer for over forty-five years. I have worked on comic book projects such as The Hulk, Popeye, Rambo and Peter Pan. With my two most popular comic series being The Green Hornet and The Terminator (with Alex Ross). With Ardath Mayhar I penned two TSR fantasy novels, and in 2001 I had my first play, a World War II romantic comedy, produced.

This site serves as a portfolio of the work I’ve done to date, as a showcase for projects in the works, and as home for my online Journal (below), which will be updated frequently.

I am currently writing and producing pulp novels and short stories for various publishers and have several movie scripts floating around Hollywood looking for a home, and if that isn’t enough, I also have a review column at the website.

A devoted grandfather of six, at 75, I am thrilled to be part of the new web-comic evolution. Part of this joy is in the realization of a life long dream, that of becoming a pulp writer.

Thanks for visiting, and enjoy your stay.

Greetings Loyal Airmen, while our funding campaign is still underway for JIN & TONIK # 1, other projects are moving along the assembly line as well. Let’s take a look at a few.



Having wrapped up his great art on CRIMSON NUN # 1, artist Jesse Hansen has been really buys working issue # 2 as you can see above. These are the finished pencils for the first three pages of that issue. We are simply bowled over by Jesse’s work and enthusiasm. This also tell the Air Chief he better get busy writing script # 3.  Ha.



Meanwhile publisher Ben Dunn of Antarctic Press has started putting together the Kickstarter Campaign for issue number one which will feature a cover by Fred Lang plus alternates like the one above by Ben himself  We are all wicked excited about this, Loyal Airmen. Stay tuned.



Sixty years ago, the month, the Air Chief graduated from the first ever class of Saint Thomas Aquinas High School in Dover, NH.  Two weeks ago was our 6oth class reunion and quite a few of our classmates were able to attend the festivities. Sadly, due to a medical issue, we were unable to attend. Then the other day, one of our class, posted the above poster he has put together from our yearbook featuring those fifty-six who have since passed away. In looking at those bright, happy, smiling face, the Air Chief was able to recognize quite a few of those boys and girls he shared so many happy days. And now, they are gone and those of us remaining will naturally dwindle more with each passing year. Life is fleeting, like a Carly Pearce song laments, “…we fireflies, burning way too fast.” Rest in peace, fellow Saints. May our Love God keep you safe in his eternal embrace, as you enjoy the love that surrounds while awaiting the rest of us to join you eventually.  And what a grand reunion that will be truly be.

God bless all you Loyal Airmen.

Ron – Over & Out!
