As all Loyal Airmen know, like the old classic pulp mugs, all Airship 27 Production books have interior illustrations. And these are by some of the finest artist working today. Recently we assigned our new Phantom Detective anthology to artist Andrew Ritchie and he just turned in his first art piece for the book. The brand new sedan parked on a New York street with a skyscraper reflected on the hood. WOW. He is off to a great start or what?
Something tells me this is going to be a very special book. Captain Ron
Airship 27 Productions is damn happy to announce the release
of writer B. Chris Bell’s newest collection of Bagman stories.Sure to be welcome news to all our Chicago based pulp fans
as that is the character’s home base in the 30s.
A new gang boss is taking over the meat-packing district of
Chicago and his tools are murder and intimidation.He calls himself the Butcher and the trail of
death and destruction he leaves in his wake is a testament to that moniker. Now
it will take all of the Bagman’s skills and know-how to unmask this savage foe
and save the streets of the Windy
City from a new and
bloody gang war.
Writer B. Chris Bell unleashes a trio of brand new
adventures featuring his sarcastic 1930’s hero who wears a burlap sack over his
head and fights for his neighborhood streets. Added to this volume’s roster is
a mystery involving the kidnapping of newsboys and in a third story, Bagman’s
trusted ally and driver, Crankshaft, is featured in a solo short.
