Lance Star: Sky Ranger Volume 3 Launch Interview: Shannon Hall

With the release of the third volume of Lance Star: Sky Ranger from Airship 27 Productions and Cornerstone Books, we here at Sky Ranger Central talked to the creators, writers, artists, and publishers involved with the latest installment in the Lance Star: Sky Ranger series.

Next up is Lance Star: Sky Ranger Volume 3 Artist, Shannon Hall.

LSSR: Tell us a little about yourself and where readers can find out more about you and your work?

SH: Well, I am married to my beautiful wife Keshia. We have four kids together. And I seem to have an unusual love for drawing and creating. You can find more of my work at http://shannonh.carbonmade.com/

LSSR: How did you become involved with the Lance Star: Sky Ranger series?

SH: Ron Fortier found me on a comic forum and basically just asked if I wanted to work with him. How could I say no?

LSSR: Who is Lance Star? What makes pulp characters like Lance and the Sky Rangers appeal to you as an artist and a reader?

SH: Lance Star is a no nonsense character that has nerves of steel and a strong sense of honor and duty. Pulp characters like Lance really let your imagination run wild. On any given day, Lance can be found anywhere around the world doing what he does best… saving the day. Imagine the adventures a character like that could have!

LSSR: You provided the cover and interior illustrations for Lance Star: Sky Ranger Volume 3. What can readers expect to see in this edition?

SH: Each story is a polar opposite of the other while keeping with the same continuity. That is one of the really cool things about working on an anthology. All of the stories are equally exciting in different ways.

LSSR: Any upcoming projects you would like to plug?

SH: I signed on to do illustrations for the next Mars McCoy book for AirShip 27. Another great classical style character. That's really all I can talk about now.

LSSR: Thanks, Shannon.
