NOIR - The Art of Rob Moran


Airship 27 Productions is proud to announce the release of their first ever art book.  NOIR – THE ART OF ROB MORAN  is a wonderful collection of stark black and white imagery showcasing the phenomenal work of one of today’s top graphic artist in the field of pulp literature.

Rob Moran is an award-winning illustrator/comic book artist/writer based in the UK.  As a writer he has created various comic titles and wrote a nationally syndicated American newspaper comic strip.  As an artist he has been a magazine illustrator, newspaper cartoonist, computer game designer and has created posters for the Scottish Opera.  As a graphic artist, he has been published in the UK, Europe and the USA with such companies as Marvel, Dark Horse, Image Comics, Silver Phoenix Entertainment, Classical comics, 2000 AD and many others.  His comic mini-series BLOOD NATION is currently being filmed as a major motion picture.

“We discovered Rob via Facebook,” explains Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor Ron Fortier.  “Immediately his love for the classic Noir movies of old jumped out at us with each wonderful piece he would post.”  Ultimately Airship 27 Productions recruited Moran to do the art for their book, PROHIBITION by writer Terrence McCauley; an old fashion gangster epic.  For his efforts Moran won the coveted Pulp Factory Award for Best Interior Illustrations.  In 2013, Moran did the art for BROTHER BONES – SIX DAYS OF THE DRAGON, his second assignment for Airship 27 Productions and is currently nominated for this work in both the Pulp Factory and New Pulp Awards.

“When the opportunity to showcase this amazing artist presented itself,” Fortier continues, “Art Director Rob Davis and I knew this was a book we had to do. We’ve published dozens of great artists over the past few years.  Rob Moran is clearly one of the best of these and this is a book we are damn proud of.”

NOIR : THE ART OF ROB MORAN is an 8-1/2 X 11 black and white book.  It features over two dozens illustrations highlighting Hollywood’s silver screen killers, G-Men, Mobsters and Femme Fatales like you’ve never seen them before. 

It is available from Amazon.com –
