FOUR NEW MYSTERIES
Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to announce the release of its seventeenth title of the year, SHERLOCK HOLMES – CONSULTING DETECTIVE Vol V. All four previous volumes have been among the company’s biggest sellers as the appeal of Arthur Conan Doyle’s characters only grows stronger with time.
“Part of this series success is that we made it clear from the start that we would remain true to Doyle’s original template,” explains Airship 27 Managing Editor, Ron Fortier. “Over the years these characters had been put into such fanciful situations as combating Martians, meeting Tarzan or battling monsters as Dracula or Dr. Jekyll & Mr.Hyde. It seemed there was no end to the absurdity of these so-called crossovers.” Fortier was adamant that the Consulting Detective books would respect Conan Doyle’s original tales in every way possible. “This is the one series our readers look forward to every year and are always inquiring when the next book is due. We value their support and promise to maintain this classic approach. We’re not about to fix what isn’t broken.”
Amidst the fog covered alleys and byways of London, murder and mayhem run rampant. With the dawning of a new century, Consulting Detective Sherlock Holmes and his able assistant, Dr. Watson represent the forces of truth and justice, ready to confront the villainy of these new modern horrors.
Here are another quartet of unique, perplexing cases that will challenge this noble duo and test their fortitude and courage. Why would someone murder an old man a few months before his hundredth birthday? Why is Holmes arch nemesis, Prof. Moriarty hunting the city for same sadistic killer he is after? And when the Great Detective is arrested and imprisoned for attempting to seduce the wife of a wealthy nobleman, Watson questions whether his friend has finally lost his mind.
Within these pages, writers Chuck Miller, Aaron Smith, I.A. Watson and Andrew Salmon offer up four of the most thrilling and suspenseful adventures ever devised to confound Arthur Conan Doyle’s most beloved heroes. Pulp Factory Award winning artist Mike Fyles provides the dramatic cover with interior illustrations and design by fellow PFA winner, Rob Davis. It is time to load your revolver, hail a hansom cab and prepare for action for once again, the game is afoot!

THE SPIDER & THE LADY
(For Immediate Release)
Veteran comics writer and New Pulp scribe, Ron Fortier, has just signed to write a black and white, bi-monthly comics series for Moonstone Books that will feature both The Master of Men, The Spider and the Sexy Pulp Vigilante, Domino Lady. Fortier’s run will begin with issue # 3 due out early next year.
Each adventure will be a two-issue arc and feature a third pulp hero in a cameo role. Fortier’s enthusiasm for the project is bubbling over. “I love both these classic pulp characters and though I’ve done prose stories of them in the past, the opportunity to chronicle new comic adventures was just too good to pass up.”
Pulp fans are aware of the logistical challenge such a series poses because both characters operate opposite coasts; the Spider haunts New York and its east coast environs while the Domino Lady is a native Californian living in Los Angeles. So how does one write that kind of a team book? “With lots of imagination and chicanery,” Fortier says answering that question with a mischievous smile. “The last thing we wanted to do is force plots because of some geographical perimeters. All I will say is that both will make appearances in every issue, but as to whether they are physically in the same place readers will just have to wait and see.”
A well known writer with over thirty-five years experience, Fortier is best known for his work on Now Comics’ GREEN HORNET and TERMINATOR – BURNING EARTH series. He also wrote GENE RODDENBERRY’S LOST UNIVERSE for Tekno Comics.
Today he divides this time between his own writing projects and his duties as the Managing Editor of Airship 27 Productions, a leading publisher in the New Pulp Movement, which he began nine years ago with artist Rob Davis. He currently writes the new prose adventures of Captain Hazzard and his own original pulp hero, Brother Bones; the Undead Avenger.
The artist on this new venture is twenty year professional, Michael Dorman. Dorman has worked in every capacity of graphic creating. His latest credits include penciling and inking Logan’s Run: Aftermath #4 and short stories in William Nolan’s Dark Universe for Bluewater Comics and the upcoming Immortal Deception #1 for Honey Badger Press. "I'm thrilled to be working with a legend of the pulp world like Ron Fortier and excited to work with such icons as the Spider and Domino Lady. I look forward to bringing these exciting stories to visual life!"
Editing the series is Chuck Kennedy. Chuck is a veteran columnist and podcaster who has covered many of today’s brightest stars while commenting on the state of the comic book and retail industry and providing the occasional review when he can find the time. He is a stay-at-home father of triplets who still believe he is a were-bear.
“I knew Ron for over a year as a super-groovy person that everyone referred to as Captain and who had the coolest retro-lexicon of adjectives for everyday terms like amigo, hip, and any number of names my dad would recognize. Then I found out he was a writer and damn did he become even cooler. Save yourself the time and just start reading his work, you’ll get to know him far better than I ever did.”
Kennedy goes on to say the team’s first issue should be out early next year with further Press Releases to announce the official date and the Diamond Solicitation listings.

Ron Fortier's darkest creation returns!
When the souls of the innocent cry for justice,
One man hears their call:
The Undead Avenger
Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to announce the release of the first ever, full length Brother Bones novel, SIX DAYS OF THE DRAGON, by Roman Leary.
He stalks the streets of Cape Noire, waging a never-ending war against the forces of darkness.
Bones has never met a foe he could not defeat, but now he faces an enemy unlike any he has ever known. With only a motley crew of unlikely allies – and his silver-plated twin .45s – Bones must stop an ancient evil that threatens not only Cape Noire, but the entire world.
Created by writer/editor, Ron Fortier nearly a decade ago, the Undead Avenger has appeared in over a half dozen pulp shorts collected in a previous volume; several comic book adventures and in audio recordings. Since his inception, he has become one of the most popular heroes of the New Pulp movement. Now Brother Bones is back to cut a swathe of destruction through his first full-length novel!
“Allowing another writer to handle Brother Bones was something I had never imagined,” explains Fortier, the Managing Editor of Airship 27 Production. “Roman Leary is a talented writer and one of the biggest Brother Bones fans out there. When he first approached me with idea of writing a Bones novel, I was naturally hesitant.” Despite his reservations, Fortier let the idea gestate for several days before replying to the enthusiastic writer. “I knew Roman loved the series and was familiar not only with Brother Bones but his supporting cast as well,” Fortier continues. “So I took a chance and asked him to send me a detailed outline.” What the character’s creator received was the plot to, SIX DAYS OF THE DRAGON. “Roman won me over. The concept was true to the character but envisioned him in an exciting new adventure that was like nothing that had been done before. I knew instantly Brother Bones fans would love this book.”
Writer Roman Leary and illustrator Rob Moran deliver the gun-blazing thrills in this epic tale of two-fisted action and spine-chilling horror! “This is a rip-roaring ride through a macabre house of horrors,” says Charles Saunders, author of Imaro and Damballa.

CLIPPERS OF THE CLOUDS
UP SHIP! AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTIONS launches ZEPPELIN TALES!
In the early 20th Century, German Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin pioneered the creation of rigid, lighter-than-air crafts capable of long distance flights. During World War One they were adapted for military use as long range bombers wreaking havoc upon Great Britain from their lofty positions high above the clouds where fixed-winged fighters could not reach them. After the war, the Zeppelins became pleasure ships utilized in luxury Trans-Atlantic Flights and highly popular.
The Golden Era of the airship was the 1930s, the same period as that of the pulps and it is no surprise their romantic images would inspire pulp writers of the time. The original monthly, ZEPPELIN STORIES, was produced solely to highlight these magnificent flying machines in exciting, colorful and fast paced adventures. Now, Airship 27 Productions, itself bearing the image of these high-flying cruisers, launches a brand new series devoted to airships.
“I doubt there could be a more inevitable title for us than this one,” joked Airship 27 Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “Even since we started publishing new pulp novels and anthologies, many of our readers would point to our logo and ask when we were going to get around doing a book about airships.” Fortier states that as much as he was always keen on the idea, other projects kept taking precedence. Then a few years ago one of their regular contributors pushed the matter to the foreground. “Writer Frank Schildiner wrote one day pretty much asking if we were ever going to get to this particular theme as it begged to be done. I no longer had any legitimate excuse not to tackle the project. We put out the word and within a few days two of our finest pulp writers answered the call.”
In this debut volume you will thrill to the exploits of Jim Beard’s new hero, Tracer Talbot, as he encounters a mysterious pirate airship and her crew. While writer I.A. Watson sets off on an aerial adventure aboard an experimental Zeppelin built to explore the skies of an alien dimension. Each high flying tale is wonderfully illustrated by Pedro Cruz and the book features a stunning cover by award winning artist Mike Fyles with Art Director Rob Davis providing the book’s overall design.
Join us as AIRSHIP 27 – ZEPPELIN STORIES Vol One soars into the stratosphere of the imagination on this, its maiden flight.

A SON’S REVENGE
The Crimson Mask is back…and Airship 27 Productions has him! This, the first in an on-going series, features four brand new adventures by some of today’s finest pulp writers.
Veteran Police Sergeant Clarke is gunned down by hoodlums, shot in the back of the head. As he lay dying, a rush of blood to his face formed a macabre mask, a crimson mask! When his son, Doctor Robert “Bob” Clarke, saw that strange stigmata he interpret it as a sign, inspiring him to become his father’s avenger, the Crimson Mask!
Once again Airship 27 Productions digs into the dusty vaults of long forgotten, second tier pulp heroes to revitalize another great character in brand new, exciting adventures. Writers J. Walt Layne, Terrence McCauley, C. William Russette and Gary Lovisi took on the challenge of creating new, bizarre mysteries for the pharmacist turned crime-fighter and in doing so have put together a terrific collection of fast pace pulp action echoing the thrills of the original classics.
“All of which is why Airship 27 Productions exist,” reaffirms Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “Specifically for great, fun characters like this one. Characters relegated to forgotten back files of the classic pulp hero ranks. Well, not anymore. The Crimson Mask always had the potential to be a something better, now our writers and artists are making that happen.”
Aided by retired Police Commissioner Warrick, his former college roommate David Small and lovely nurse Sandra Gray, the Crimson Mask must hunt down the villainous distributors of tainted heroin, stop an invisible thief, learn who ignited the latest city gang war and solve a killer targeting his father’s allies.
Talented artist Andy Fish provides twelve stark black and white interior illustrations plus a truly wonderful, colorful and iconic pulp cover painting with Art Director Rob Davis handing book designs to offer a truly stunning, quality package that will delight even the most jaded pulp fan.

HATS OFF TO
THE SERIAL CLIFFHANGERS
Airship 27 Productions is absolutely thrilled to announce the release of their newest pulp novel, “The Queen of Escapes,” by Curtis Fernlund.
“I grew up seeing serials like Republic’s King of the Rocketmen weekly at the local movie house,” says Airship 27 Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “I have such fond memories of those great melodramas and over the years have collected many of them on VHS and then DVDs. Serials were pretty much the film version of the pulps which is why I was so excited about The Queen of Escapes when it landed on my desk. Serial fans are going to love this one.”
The time is 1935. After a decade of fame as the Queen of the Serials, Hollywood actress Gloria Swann is dismayed to see her box-office numbers dwindling with each new production. Desperate to reclaim her popularity, she bankrolls her own film project; an over the top jungle adventure to be shot on location in the wilds of the Amazon rainforests of Brazil.
After the crew and cast arrive at their isolated destination, a series of accidents occur threatening the lives of several of the players. The main target of these unexplained mishaps is Swann’s younger stunt double, Angela Morgan. She suspects there are evil forces lurking in the jungle that threaten their safety. Her only ally in this belief is Karl Braun, the veteran stun coordinator. When Gloria Swann mysteriously disappears, Angela may be the only hope the Queen of Escapes has to survive.
Writer Curtis Fernlund’s homage to the classic film serials of the yesterday is a rousing, fast paced adventure that speeds from one danger-filled cliffhanger to the next. James Lyle provides marvelous illustrations and Andy Fish captures all the fun in his gorgeous cover painting, designed by Rob Davis.
