AIRSHIP 27 LIFTS-OFF WITH CAPTAIN ACTION SEQUEL!
Airship 27 Productions, in partnership with Captain Action
Enterprises, is thrilled to announce the release of its second Captain Action
pulp novel, “Hearts of the Rising Sun” by Jim Beard.
“The response to our first Captain Action novel, “The Riddle
of the Glowing Men,” was so positive, we were anxious to get this sequel out to
the fans,” says Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor, Ron Fortier. “In this second adventure, Jim moves the saga
to Far East in the year 1968.”
While on assignment in Japan,
Captain Action is haunted by the woman he loved and lost years ago in the
underground kingdom beneath Siberia. When she mysteriously begins reappearing
during his clandestine mission to witness a newly discovered power source, agent
Miles Drake begins to question his own sanity.
Forces are at work to steal two naturally formed energy
stones whose limitless power in the wrong hands could destroy the world. When
he begins to suspect his alien nemesis, Dr. Evil, is behind these attacks,
Drake has to utilize his most daring disguises ever to learn the truth and ally
himself with an old vigilante hero from the past.
Now the one and only Captain Action must walk a delicate
tightrope between old and new allies while attempting to discover the source of
the threat to the Hearts of the Rising Sun.
If he fails, mankind is doomed!
Ed Catto, of Captain Action Enterprises, chimes in
enthusiastically. “We had said Jim
Beard’s first Captain Action pulp story was like an Ian Fleming story starring
Doc Savage. This new one ratchets it up
another level, an international espionage thriller with a dash of Hitchcock
mystery and glamour.”
The book features a beautifully painted cover by Michael
Youngblood with nine black and white interior illustrations by Pulp Factory
Award winning artist Rob Davis.
“Hearts of the Rising Sun,” ties in seamlessly with the
continuity of Dynamite’s Codename : Action series,” adds Joe Ahearn, also of
Captain Action Enterprises. “2014 looks
to be a very big year for Captain Action with two comic series, a new Lady
Action and lots more collectible toys due this holiday season.”
The popularity of Captain Action has never been greater with
the release of CAPTAIN ACTION – HEARTS OF THE RISING SUN, his appeal to today’s
pulp fans continues to grow.
Available now at Amazon in both hard copies and on Kindle.
