"CAPTAIN ACTION - Hearts of the Rising Sun" will soon be going into production. Again chronicled by writer Jim Beard, it will feature interior illustrations by our Art Director Rob Davis and a painted cover by Michael Youngblood.
Michael did the cover to this year's MARS McCOY Space Ranger Vol II. Working in tandem, Rob did up this rough thumbnail from which Michael will do the final full color cover which should be amazing.
As Art Director Rob Davis reported today on our Facebook page, our next and final title of the year will be - SHERLOCK HOLMES Consulting Detective Vol V - Here's a sneak peek at the back cover. Expect the book to be out by mid-December. Sort of our early Christmas gift to all you Loyal Airmen.
Things have been hopping at Hangar 27 HQ and we thought it was time to give you Loyal Airmen another art sneak-peek. This time we wanted to showcase one of the twelve amazing interior illustrations being done by Scott "Doc" Vaughn for - LANCE STAR - SKY RANGER Vol IV which should be out early next year.
Doc is the co-creator of the highly popular webstrip, WARBIRDS OF MARS, which is also a comic and best selling New Pulp anthology.
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
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

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
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
alwayskeen 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.
