AIRSHIP 27 Presents ALL-STAR PULP COMICS # 2
A Comic Book Anthology

(Portion of Profits Goes to Boston Red Cross)

Airship 27 Productions has once again teamed with Redbud Studio comics to release the second in their on-going pulp comics anthology. The first giant issue in this series won the coveted Pulp Ark Award for Best Pulp Comic of 2010.

Volume two of the series, co-edited by creators Ron Fortier and Rob Davis, is even bigger than that stellar premier issue. Contained here are eight stories featuring both modern and classic pulp heroes; Ki-Gor the Jungle Lord, the Black Bat, Cain, Robin Hood, Lance Star, Brothers Bones, Dillon and Domino Lady. 

The cover is by Will Meugniot and features Ki-Gor's lovely mate, Helene, battling back to back with Derrick Ferguson's modern day adventurer, Dillon. Other creators represented are Russ Anderson, Fortier, Davis, Ian Watson, Thomas Deja, Michelle Sciuto, Sean Taylor, Aaron Meade, Todd Jones, Lee Oaks, James Gaubatz, Van Plexico,
Andrew Salmon and Kelly Everaert. 

The book is available from Indy Planet.com and part of the proceeds are being donated to the Boston Red Cross. "We were the last stages of assembling the book," explains Editor Foriter, "when the Patriots' Day bombings occurred in Boston. All of us, like the rest of the country, were in shock and felt helpless to do anything." It was writer Van Plexico who contacted Fortier about possibly offering some of the sales proceeds to help those injured in the terror attack. "The second Van brought up, I knew it was something we had to do," Fortier continues. He contacted Davis and all the creators and the decision was made to take all the profits earned by the book during its first six months in print and donate them to the Boston Red Cross.

"We truly hope our fans, when they learn of this idea, will want to rally around a truly good cause and help us put sales over the top," adds co-editor Rob Davis. "We really want this to be the best selling title Redbud Studio has ever produced."

RICK JOHNSON: Artist-- 
Rick Johnson (aka The World's Smallest Giant) is a writer/artist living in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Having grown up on a steady diet of comic books and horror movies, he naturally thought he could earn a living in one of those fields. Much to his surprise, life often throws curve balls. So Rick took a “real” job and became a productive citizen. But he never outgrew his love of all things macabre. A few years ago, Rick began self publishing his own brand of horror and science fiction under the banner Phat Daddy Studios Presents. With stories like Bune’s World, LMC-1 and Hard Luck, he continued to refine his approach to graphic storytelling. Operation Silver Moon marked a turning point. Teaming with award winning writer Bobby Nash gave Rick the opportunity to revamp his drawing style. Taking cues from E.C. comics, Warren Publishing magazines, and 40s film noir, Rick injected a new mood into his art. Currently, Rick is providing artwork for the horror web series Upyri and collaborating with writer Sean Taylor on the science fiction tale A Stitch In Time: The Return of The Invisible Man for IDW. He is also working on a follow up to his Phat Daddy Fable Hard Luck.
