About the Author

Begun in 2004, Airship 27 Productions was the brain-child of veteran comic book writer Ron Fortier. Long familiar with the countless pulp book reprints being done every year to keep alive the memory of those classic 1930s heroes, Ron wondered why no one was bothering to create brand new adventures of these amazing characters. Partnering with professional comic book illustrator and graphic artist, Rob Davis, he then self-published THE HOUNDS OF HELL, co-authored with Gordon Linzner. In this tale, the popular pulp hero the Moon Man battles the equally famous pulp villain Doctor Satan. Combining their artistic sensibilities from their comic book experiences, the two added nine black and white spot illustrations and a brilliant wrap around cover by Tom Floyd.

They followed this book with their first anthology, LANCE STAR - SKY RANGER, starring all new exploits of a long forgotten Canadian aviation pulp hero. The art this time being provided by Rich Woodall. Then came two anthology volumes of SECRET AGENT X and the first all new adventures of CAPTAIN HAZZARD - CHAMPION OF JUSTICE, a one shot wonder back in 1938. Fortier and Davis reproduced Hazzard's one and only book and have since release three new volumes in this on-going series. More are planned.

Today Airship 27 Productions continues its mission of producing brand new adventures of classic pulp heroes with over 100 titles in the catalog; featuring such iconic heroes as Sherlock Holmes, Sinbad the Sailor and Robin Hood. Focusing on action adventure stories, coupled with today's most talented young illustrators and delivered in colorful, beautiful designed packages to please the most critical book lover.

The company's dirigible logo is emblematic of Ron and Rob's high flying goals; to produce the finest quality books that are always fun to read, again and again.
