MYSTERY MEN ( & Women ) Vol 4

Volume IV

Airship 27 Productions thrilled to announce the release of our latest volume of Mystery Men (& Women) Volume # 4.  As in previous editions, the volume offers up another quartet of new, original pulp heroes by today’s finest pulp writers.

Ron Fortier, Managing Editor of Airship 27 Productions reminds fans of the series’ beginnings. “After a few years of publishing new adventures of the classic pulp heroes from the 30s and 40s, many of our writers started asking if they could offer up tales of their own, new creations. We thought it was a great idea and a natural evolution of what we were doing.”

In this new volume, you’ll find “A Waltz in Scarlet.” From the pages of the Shadow Legion, comes the Ferryman; a blind man who sees through the eyes of ghosts. Created by Thomas Deja. “Cult of the Stranger.” The popular Eel and Adder, aided by another mystery man ally, must take on a gang of modern Thuggees lose in the city. Created by Joel Jenkins. “The Cult of Kali Kill,” is another rousing adventure starring Chicago’s most unique avenger, the bumbling hero the Bagman as invented by B.C. Bell. And rounding out the book is “The Grey Mantis Strike,” wherein a masked martial artist races the clock to save a group of kidnapped children. Created by C. William Russette.

“We couldn’t be any happier with this volume’s action packed stories,” says Fortier. “Then add interiors by Rob Davis and a beautiful evocative cover of the Ferryman by Zacharay Brunner, and we think Mystery Men (& Women) Vol 4 is sure to delight our loyal readers.”

Four thrill-a-minute tales of suspense, mystery and action that keep the true spirit of the classic pulps alive!!

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to present the first novel based on the action packed, adult comic book  “Scimidar” created by writer R.A. Jones and artist Rob Davis. Between 1986 and 1994, Eternity Comics, a label of Malibu Comics, published creator owned, offbeat titles and none was more original than  “Scimidar” first released in 1988.

Set in a post apocalyptic world of the far future, Jones & Davis’ series told the story of a beautiful, sexy mercenary who would do whatever it took to survive and protect those she loved. “Scimidar” pushed the envelope in regards to fast-paced, action orientated adult fare for its time and is to this day fondly remembered by its legion of fans.

“I was a huge fan of the comics,” says Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor, Ron Fortier. “It was the first series that I remember seeing Rob’s work in and eventually let to my reaching out to him as one comic creator to another. Now, decades later he’s our Art Director here at Airship 27.” Fortier continues to explain how he and Davis often talked about their past comic careers and those projects that remained special in their memories.
Thus “Scimidar” kept coming up over and over again. Eventually Fortier contacted writer R.A. Jones with the idea of his writing a Scimidar pulp novel.  “I was ecstatic when R.A. replied that he’d love to do such a book and of course no one was happier than Rob.”

Now R.A. Jones tells, for the very first time, the secret origin Scimidar in this exciting new, pulp infused novel, while Davis returns as the book’s illustrator. “It was a great pleasure to draw Scimidar again,” Davis adds happily.  “It reminded me that I have never had quite as much fun as a storytelling artist as I did with those comic book stories.” Finally, popular Canadian artist Ted Hammond provides the gorgeous cover of this lethal beauty.

There was never another character like “Scimidar,” before or since. Open this book and find out why.
