Greeting Loyal Airmen, this week the Air Chief wants to start by recommending all you Loyal Airmen be sure to keep up with your medical well-being. That means regular yearly check ups and procedures. This past Monday the Air Chief, now 77 yrs young, had his third colonoscopy at a local clinic.  We had our first back in our mid-50s and polyps were detected and removed.  Then after moving to Colorado, sometime in our late 60s we had our second it everything fine.  Monday’s result were totally fine with the resulting goal of being told we have a healthy colon…and because of our general well being and age, this was officially our last. We bother to bring that up here because, unless you’ve all been living under rock, we suspect you already know that colon-cancer is one of the leading causes of death among men in this country. All of which could be easily avoided if all men had this procedure after turning 40 yrs of age on a regular basis. So please, do it not only for yourselves, but also those who love and depend on you. Sure the prep procedure is annoying, but a small price to pay for good health and peace of mind.



Last Friday night, Antarctic Publisher Ben Dunn launched the funding campaign for issue # 1 of our series The Crimson Nun based on a character he created back in the 1990s as part of his Warrior Nun universe. The Air Chief is writing this new 4 issue mini-series, with artist Jesse Thomas doing art and coloring and artist Mike Belcher the lettering. Above are the two alternate covers, on the left by Fred Lang and on the right by Ben himself. The funding campaign was launched at the Indiego site with a goal of $500.  By noon on Sat that goal had been met and exceeded. By that evening it was past $800 and today, Monday afternoon, it is already at $1,100 and still climbing. The Air Chief is still is shock. It’s obvious Ben and Antarctic Press have a really loyal fanbase and they are making this project fly. To all you Loyal Airmen who kicked as well, our sincere gratitude. The campaign still has 15 days remaining and one can only wonder where the fund will be when it does so.



Airship 27 Production’s latest release is a great action packed pulp adventure.  In “The Devil You Know” by writer Glen Held, a group of heroes; Ravenwood Stepson of Mystery, Ascott Keane, Major Steele and Secret Agent join forces to battle the insidious master criminal Doctor Satan. Our own art director, Rob Davis provides not on the great black and white interior illustrations and the amazing cover you see above. As ever available now at Amazon in paperback and soon on Kindle.



This past Monday our youngest grandchild, Logan Fortier, graduated from Bethel High School. Now he moves on to college and his goal of becoming a music teacher. Val and the Air Chief are so proud of him. That’s his mom Katie and Dad Scott with him. Way to go, Logan!!!



Finally, the Air Chief has been writing comics for a long-long time. JIN & TONIK is one of those comics that both gives tons us fun a challenges all at the same time. Cesar Feliciano’s art is gorgeous. Only three short days till the end of our campaign. Thanks to all you supported us. (

And that’s it for this week, Loyal Airmen.  As ever thanks so much for stopping by. We’ll see you back here this time next week. Until then, God bless.

Ron – Over & Out!
