THE RETURN OF THE SHADOW LEGION

Airship 27 Productions announces the second volume in Thomas Deja’s ongoing saga of modern day superheroes begun in “Shadow Legion – New Roads to Hell.”

“The first book served to introduce us to these amazing characters,” explains Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “Thomas Deja’s imagination is firing on all cylinders as he whips up unique, diverse heroes, each with his or her own deadly challenges as is evidenced in this second outing.”

The superheroes of Nocturne, Florida, known as the Shadow Legion, are back but this time each is going solo.  In a quartet of new adventures, each must confront weird and bizarre threats to their city and its people.

The blind Ferryman, who communes with ghosts, must save an innocent child from an eternal nightmare while the battling Nightbreaker confronts an old foe from his past with the ability to rain down death and destruction on the city.  Meanwhile the Black Talon is kidnapped by a powerful necromancer whose obsession is to destroy all superheroes. And finally the beautiful Dreamcatcher must ally herself with a bizarre living rag-doll in her search for a maniacal fiend.

Adding to the fun of this volume are 12 black and white interior illustrations by Canadian artist Vincent Marchesano. His first work for Airship 27, while the cover is provided by the always amazing Zachary Brunner. Art Director Rob Davis adds his designing touch and voila, a terrific new chapter in superhero pulps is ready to entertain our loyal fans.

Here are four fast paced adventures chronicling the exploits of amazing heroes in their eternal battle with the forces of darkness.  The Shadow Legion fights on.

JEZEBEL JOHNSTON
Queen of Anarchy

The adventures continues as Airship 27 Productions continues Nancy Hansen’s exciting pirate saga featuring the mulatto runaway, Jezebel Johnstone.

Having survived the sinking of the British privateer, Devil’s Handmaid, by a Spanish warship employing an ancient weapon, the disguised Jezebel Johnson, and a few of her compatriots are rescued by a flotilla of French vessels. Their commander is the ruthless and sadistic Captain Lucien Levesque. Having witnessed the fiery destruction of British ship, Levesque is obsessed with hunting down the Spanish galleon and obtaining the secret of the Greek Fire they possess. To do this, he will scour the surrounding islands until his prey is found.

Meanwhile, Jez, and her lover, Watler Armitage, find themselves pressed into service aboard different ships in Levesque’s tiny fleet where they must endure daily hardships to stay alive.  At the same time she comes under the attention of the Queen of Anarchy’s handsome but fierce quartermaster, Mister Blanchette.  What is his interest in the young mulatto sailor and why are Jezebel’s own feelings confused when near the blond haired rogue?

“Nancy Hansen’s JEZEBEL JOHNSTON – Devil’s Handmaid, only served to set the table,” explains Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “With book two, Queen of Anarchy, the story picks up the pace as young Jezebel encounters countless new threats in her newly chosen role as a buccaneer. The action is not stop and culminates as yet another canon firing, swashbuckling high seas battle. Fair warning, this second chapter the saga ends on a cliffhanger, that will resume in book three, Sea Witch.”

Fans of the first book have been most anxious for this sequel and they won’t be disappointed.

COMANCHE BLOOD

Presents
COMANCHE BLOOD

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to announce the release of the second in writer R.A. Jones’ western series featuring Jason Mankiller. During the Civil War, the young Union soldier had a tattoo painted on his left check; that of blood drops falling from the corner of his eyes.  Since that time, earning his reputation as a bounty hunter, he is known on the Texas frontier as The Man Who Cries Blood. 

In this second tale, Mankiller is on the trail of three vicious Comancheros who have been stirring up trouble between the Comanche and the white settlers of Fort Rogers.  Even though the skilled hunter has the friendship of the notorious half-breed Comanche Chief, Quanah Parker, it is still left to him to find the renegades and prevent more bloodshed.

“When R.A. first approached us about doing this series, we were delighted,” says Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “He wanted to do a straight up, old fashion western adventure. No fantasy elements, no weird western label. Just a classic tale of the old west during the years after the Civil War when America was attempting to heal its wound and rededicate itself to its manifest destiny.”

With the help of interior illustrator Chris Kohler and cover painter, Adam Shaw, writer R.A. Jones once again weaves a thrilled packed adventure set against the backdrop of  the Texas frontier and brings to life the pioneer men and women who crossed a vast wilderness to create a new chapter in American history.  Comanche Blood is a part of their story.

WINGS OF THE GOLDEN DRAGON

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to present a brand new fantasy adventure novel that is actually the prequel to Ms Doran’s first book, “Claws of the Golden Dragon.”

“We met Barbara Doran at Pulp Fest a few years ago,” recounts Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor, Ron Fortier.  “She was interested in writing New Pulp and we passed along our Submission Guidelines to her.  A few months later we received the manuscript to ‘Claws of the Golden Dragon,’ a terrific book we were only too happy to publish.”

After the success of that initial book, Doran opted to try something different for her second novel.  “Most of the first book takes place in a fictional city on the West Coast,” Fortier continues. “And is populated by some truly wonderful characters, both real and magical. This time Barbara thought it might be fun to go back in time and explore some of their origins.  Thus the inspiration for her new prequel book.”

1930s Shanghai was a place of excitement and intrigue... and magic. It is an international hotspot where foreign agents from around the world ply their trade. Brought to Shanghai to investigate a powerful new aircraft engine, young Conall McLeod becomes embroiled in a high-stakes game between gangs, spies and immortal beings. Together with his beloved Mudan Chang and hot-shot Chinese pilot, Feng Zhanchi, Conall must navigate the dangerous waters of the city's criminal undercurrents and help free a lost immortal from the clutches of evil.

Writer Barbara Doran spins a fantastic tale of action and mystery filled with some of the most memorable characters ever conceived.  Artist Gary Kato returns to offer up nine interior illustrations and Art Director Rob Davis provides the cover to this fast paced fantasy thriller. Whether deep within the cities maze of dark alleys or high atop an ancient castle of evil, no one will be able to escape from The Wings of the Golden Dragon!
