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.
