GHOST BOY RETURNS
Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to announce the release of its second anthology featuring the amazing comic-book hero, Ghost Boy!
It is the mid-60s and the U.S. is in thick of the Cold War the Soviet Union and Red China. The country’s greatest asset is Ghost Boy, a young genius with amazing supernatural powers, and his eight foot tall steel and chrome robot, Pops. Ripped from the pages of Jigsaw Comics, Ghost Boy returns in this collection of four brand new adventures.
“This character is just so much fun. He captures the innocence and the exuberance of the Silver Age of comics,” states Airship 27 Production’s Managing Editor. “Sure, fans were still into Marvel and DC, but in the early 60s we also had dozens of other publishers unleashing a myriad weird heroes ala Nemesis, Herbie, Dr. Spektor, and of course Ghost Boy; the scientific wonder who could read minds and turn invisible. He was a real original and we’re delighted to bring him back in these brand new prose adventures.”
A rogue army invades America; a giant monster from another dimension attacks a small western town and a cunning foreign inventor creates a machine to enslave the minds of his targets. These are just some of threats facing our heroes as put down by pulp writers Terry Alexander, J.Walt Layne, Erik Franklin and Lee Houston Jr. Gary Kato, a well known comic-book artists, and devotee of the great Steve Ditko, provides the interior illustrations giving the book the perfect Silver Age comic-book feel. Whereas Zachary Brunner provides the cover which is an homage to Jack Kirby’s classic cover to Marvel’s Fantastic Four # 1.
So hold on to your hats, pulp and comic readers, the Cold War is about to heat up! Ghost Boy, where comics and New Pulp collide.
