RAVENWOOD - STEPSON OF MYSTERY ENTERS THE CROSSOVER UNIVERSE!


Cover: Bryan Fowler
Sean Lee Levin talks about JAZZ, a story I wrote for Airship 27 Productions' Ravenwood - Stepson of Mystery vol. 1 anthology and the crossovers contained within at The Crossover Universe Blog.

The Crossover Universe is a companion blog to the books Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Volume 1 and Volume 2 by Win Scott Eckert, and the forthcoming Volumes 3 and 4 by Sean Levin and I am honored that they have included my Ravenwood - Stepson of Mystery tale.

You can check out the full article here.

RAVENWOOD - STEPSON OF MYSTERY
A pulp anthology

Airship 27 Productions and Cornerstone Book Publishers bring back another classic pulp hero from the 1930s in an all new collection of fast paced, macabre adventures of the supernatural. Meet Ravenwood – Stepson of Mystery!

He is an orphan raised by a Tibetan mystic known only as the Nameless One. As an Occult Detective he has no equal and is called upon by the authorities when they are challenged by supernatural mysteries. One of the more obscure pulp characters, Ravenwood – The Stepson of Mystery appeared as a back-up feature in the pages of Secret Agent X magazine. There were only five Ravenwood stories ever written, all by his creator, the prolific pulp veteran, Frederick C. Davis.

Now he returns in this brand new series of weird adventures, beginning with this volume in which he combats Sun Koh, a lost prince of Atlantis, battles with monstrous Yetis in Manhattan and deals with murderous ghosts and zombie assassins. Four of today’s finest pulp storytellers Frank Schildiner, B.C. Bell, Bill Gladman, and Bobby Nash offer up a quartet of fast paced, bizarre thrillers that rekindle the excitement and wonder that were the pulps.

With a stunning cover by Bryan Fowler and dramatic interior illustrations by Charles Fetherolf, Ravenwood – Stepson of Mystery was designed by Rob Davis and edited by Ron Fortier. Once again Airship 27 Productions presents pulp fans with another one-of-kind quality pulp reading experience like no other on the market today.

RAVENWOOD - STEPSON OF MYSTERY can be purchased at the following:
Airship 27 Hangar (ebook)
Amazon (Kindle)

The paperback edition is currently out of print. We hope it will return in print format soon.

THE GREEN HORNET CASEFILES
A pulp Anthology

Written by: Joe McKinney, Jim Mullaney, John Everson, Paul D. Storrie, Eric Fein, Vito Delsante, Win Scott Eckert, Dan Wickline, Paul Kupperberg, Howard Hopkins, Bobby Nash, Arthur A. Lyon, Bradley Sinor, Matthew Baugh, F.J. Desanto, David Boop, Micheal Uslan, Joe Gentile, Tim Lasiuta, Rafael Nieves
Covers by Ruben Procopio and Michael Kaluta

The long-awaited return of the Green Hornet and Kato and their rolling arsenal the Black Beauty!

Back again with all-new stories!

Moonstone is proud to present The Green Hornet Casefiles, our second anthology featuring all-new, original crime fiction tales of the man who hunts the biggest of all game, public enemies that even the FBI can’t reach!

It’s the mid 1960’s, the political climate is shaky, there’s civil unrest, freedom and equality issues erupt everywhere from film to music to out in the streets.

On police records, the Green Hornet is actually a wanted criminal, a master manipulator, a crime boss who has his fingers in every pie. In reality, The Green Hornet is actually Britt Reid, owner-publisher of the Daily Sentinel. Alongside him rides his partner Kato, who is not only is a martial artist of unsurpassed prowess, but a skilled driver, and educated engineer as well. Their goal is to destroy crime from within by posing as criminals themselves!

Bobby's story is called A Thing Of Beauty. Sanford Biggs is a collector of the rarest items. After seeing The Green Hornet and Kato in action, he spots the next rare gem for his collection. He wants The Black Beauty and will do anything to possess it.

Available in softcover, hardcover, and ebook editions.

2013 PULP FACTORY AWARD NOMINEE FOR BEST PULP INTERIOR ILLUSTRATIONS BY ROB MORAN.


Airship 27 Productions dons its tough-guy mantle, as it premiers its newest pulp star in THE RUBY FILES.

It was the 1930s and America was locked in the grip of the Great Depression. Gangsters controlled the major cities while outlaws roamed the rural back country. It was a time of Speak Easy gin-joints, Tommy-guns, fast cars and even faster dames. This is the world of New York based Private Investigator Rick Ruby, a world he is all too familiar with. From the back alleys of Gotham to the gold laden boulevards of Hollywood, Ruby is the shamus with a nose for trouble and an insatiable appetite for justice. So if you’ve got a taste for hot lead and knuckle sandwiches, tug your cuffs, adjust your fedora and light up a Lucky, a brand new pulp detective is coming your way.

Created by pulp masters, Bobby Nash & Sean Taylor, Rick Ruby echoes the tales of Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe while offering up his own brand of two-fisted action. Joined by fellow pulp smiths Andrew Salmon & William Patrick Maynard, these modern scribes of purple prose present a quartet of tales to delight any true lover of private eye fiction. This instant classic features a gorgeous Mark Wheatley cover and eight evocative black and white illustrations by Rob Moran.

This is a book that harkens back to the classic black and white Warner Brothers gangster movies that featured James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart and Edward G. Robinson to name a few. The atmosphere is gritty with a no-nonsense hero pulp fans are going to applaud from the first story to the last. And when that last tale comes to a close, you can bet we haven’t seen the last of Rick Ruby, Private Eye.

Bobby’s story is called “The Case of the Wayward Brother

On the surface, the case seemed simple enough. All Rick Ruby had to do was track down the runaway brother of the sexy socialite from California then collect his fee. Of course, in Rick Ruby’s world, even the simplest case is never that simple.

AN EVENT 15 YEARS IN THE MAKING!

Cover Art: Kerry Talbott
15 years ago, artist Jeff Austin and I worked up a Knight Watchman tale for Big Bang Comics. Sadly, the story was rejected. These things happen. Finally, after a brief hiatus, Big Bang Comics returns with an all-new issue from powerhouse publisher, AC Comics and they’ve included mine and Jeff’s Knight Watchman story. As you can imagine, Jeff and I are both thrilled and surprised that this story will make it into the hands of readers. Look for it April 2015.

Just another one of the many reasons I love my job.

Bobby

Synopsis:  BIG BANG COMICS is back!!  Original creator Gary Carlson returns with 80 pages of  all-new material!! The KNIGHT WATCHMAN in “Skeletons In The Closet”, a 48-page contemporary novella drawn by Kerry Talbott!! Solo GALAHAD  by C.B. Burk, featuring  SHUTTERBUG and a Retro-60’s KW adventure by Bobby Nash and Jeff Austin !!

Special Notes: Ships with TWO covers in an approximate 4-to-1 ratio, 4 with the Kerry Talbott Knight Watchman (cover A) and 1 with the Galahad-Lady In Waiting painted design by C. B. Burk (cover B)

Anybody (and everybody) who was collecting comics back in the 1990’s remember Big Bang Comics, right?  You probably last saw them appearing in titles from Image, as a line of classically-inspired superheroes (and heroines) lovingly echoing the comic book approaches of the 1940’s, ’50’s, ’60’s and beyond. Sound familiar? Yeah, in a lot of ways, Big Bang shared the same kind of sensibilities that make AC Comics unique in today’s market- but THEY did it in their own, distinctive way; featuring characters like The KNIGHT WATCHMAN, THUNDER GIRL, The ATOMIC SUB, The BLITZ, and dozens more. Big Bang  is the brainchild of Gary Carlson and Chris Ecker, two comic book creative fanatics who have themselves decades of experience in the field, great storytellers both. The “AC Comics family” goes ‘way back with the Big Bang crew. Mark Heike met Chris  back in 1978 doing fanzines, Stephanie Heike got up with  Gary (back in the days when she was still Stephanie Sanderson) in the 1990’s when she penciled a number of stories for Big Bang Comics , and Mark got to know Gary himself in the late 1990’s when Mr. Carlson was writing the TMNT book for Image, and Heike was inking it as a freelance gig. Well, Gary and Chris had a pretty good run with Big Bang; first at Caliber Comics, and some years at Image, until finally Big Bang got lost in the shuffle a few years ago- gone, but NOT forgotten.

AC has gotten back into contact with Gary and Chris with a plan to bring back Big Bang through AC in 2015, and in April it all starts with Big Bang Universe #1- 80 pages of unpublished, never-before-seen adventures starring that BB fan- favorite The KNIGHT WATCHMAN in a 48-page mini-graphic novel titled “Skeletons In The Closet”, written by Gary Carlson himself, with art by Kerry Talbott in a tour-du-force pitting the ‘WATCHMAN against Hal Owen in a story (and style) startlingly contemporary in tone.

The ‘WATCHMAN’s partner in crimefighting will be in evidence too, as GALAHAD crosses paths with SHUTTERBUG in a solo story titled “Lady In Waiting”, by Gary Carlson and C. B. Burk  that introduces a NEW GALAHAD !!

Then, the female member of the KNIGHT WATCHMAN cast, WATCH GIRL gets center stage in Knight Watchman Adventures, written by Bobby Nash with art by Jeff Austin. That alone may get AC regular fans excited, since Jeff Austin has been a regular illustrator on FEMFORCE for something like about TWELVE YEARS now!! It just so happens that Jeff had ALSO been an artist in the Big Bang stable.

And that is just the beginning, with more to come not only this issue, but in future issues if #1 gets a good response. So all of you old-time Big Bang fans out there, get out and preorder your copy of BIG BANG UNIVERSE #1, and you can be sure there will be more to come. Keep in mind that  this’ll be a whole SEPARATE  world of characters- not in any way related to AC, but likely JUST the sort of thing our regular readers will like. This is NOT a “crossover” of any kind; we won’t be running AC characters in this book, nor will BB characters pop up in FEMFORCE. Since WE in the AC editorial offices are big fans of the BBU, this will be Big Bang Comics 100% directed and driven by Gary and Chris, just as it always was.  We here at AC wouldn’t have it any other way. If you liked what they did before, you should love this, too!  DON’T be intimidated if you’re not familiar with Big Bang or any of their characters- you don’t NEED to be to get in on the fun!  Anyone who  likes rousing good superhero action/adventure stories well-told will enjoy this stuff! Look for Big Bang Universe #1 , 80 pages of all-new  black and white superhero action at standard comic book size, with full-color covers, saddle-stitched- for $9.95,  coming from AC Comics in April 2015. To celebrate the special event that IS the return of BIG BANG to the comic shop shelves, this very exciting premiere issue ships with TWO different cover options- a “standard” KNIGHT WATCHMAN cover version by Kerry Talbott, and a special digitally-painted GALAHAD-LADY IN WAITING design by C. B. Burk.

If you want to be certain of getting the LADY IN WAITING painted cover variant, be sure that your local retailer orders enough copies of this issue- and keep in mind that ordering through Diamond is the ONLY way to receive this variant. If you want to catch up on all things Big Bang before then, be sure to check out their website at www.bigbangcomics.com.

BOBBY HEADS TO ANGELTOWN! GARY PHILLIPS' HOLLIS P.I. NOW AVAILABLE!

Cover Art: Jeffrey Hayes
Pro Se Productions has released the much anticipated Gary Phillips’ Hollis P.I. anthology. This anthology features “Naomi” by me. It was a lot of fun to play with these characters whose adventures I’ve enjoyed reading previously. When Tommy Hancock and Gary Phillips talked to me about this project back at Pulp Ark in 2013, it was hard to say no to-- and believe me I was so busy at the time that I tried. But Nate Hollis and his crew are just too cool to walk away from and I’m so glad they invited me along for the ride.

This is a little more adult than my usual fare with amped up language, sex, and violence. It was fun to visit the hard-boiled side of the street. I’ll definitely have to visit again.

I hope you have as much fun reading it as I did writing it.

Bobby

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE-

COMIC PRIVATE EYE LEAPS TO PROSE IN NEW COLLECTION!
“GARY PHILLIPS’ HOLLIS P.I.” DEBUTS FROM PRO SE PRODUCTIONS

An innovative Publisher of cutting edge Genre Fiction and New Pulp, Pro Se Productions announces the release of a short story collection featuring one of the best modern hard boiled private investigators to ever grace a page. Birthed full-blown several years ago in the comics mini-series Angeltown, L.A. private eye Nate Hollis, created by noted Genre Fiction author Gary Phillips, makes the jump to prose in six new short stories in Gary Phillips’ Hollis, P.I.

“I couldn’t be more pleased that Hollis returns in prose from Pro Se Productions,” Phillips said. “Readers are in for some hardboiled thrills as we put the redoubtable private eye through his paces -- from a ritual killing, the hunt for long-hidden swag, attack dogs in the dark, to the machinations of crooked politicians…tough guys and tougher women.”

Gary Phillips has penned short stories for Moonstone’s Kolchak: The Night Stalker Casebook, the Avenger Chronicles, the Green Hornet Casefiles and The Spider: Extreme Prejudice anthologies. His most current novel is Warlord of Willow Ridge. He also has out the eBook novella, The Essex Man: 10 Seconds to Death, a homage to ‘70s era paperback vigilantes. Additionally he is one of the editors for Pro Se's BLACK PULP volume, and any and all follow ups to that collection. In addition to editing and contributing to Hollis, P.I. for Pro Se, he also has for the press stories upcoming in Asian Pulp and Black Pulp II. He recently wrote the graphic novel Big Water, about the fight by a municipality to save its water from privatization; has a steamy story not for kids in 50 Shades of a Fedora; and is editor and contributor to the upcoming Day of the Destroyers, a collection of linked stories wherein Jimmie Flint, Secret Agent X-11 battles to stop internal forces out to overthrow the presidency of FDR during the Great Depression.

New York Times bestseller Juliet Blackwell (the Witchcraft Mystery series), acclaimed up-and-coming crime writer Aaron Philip Clark (A Healthy Fear of Man) new pulp luminaries Derrick Ferguson (Four Bullets for Dillon) and Pulp Ark award winner Bobby Nash join Phillips in penning these new gritty tales. Five stories feature Nate Hollis with a sixth featuring his sometimes ally, bounty hunter Irma Deuce. The streets are mean, but they don’t hold a stick of dynamite to Gary Phillips’ Hollis, P.I.

“PI Nate Hollis,” says T. Jefferson Parker, author of The Famous and the Dead, “originally sprang from the rich imagination of LA-based writer Gary Phillips, but he’s so real and tactile he could climb off the page and buy you a bourbon. Now, four other authors are getting a piece of Nate, too, and this latest collection of Nate stories is wonderful. This is contemporary noir at its best, offering all the familiar pleasures of the genre, but giving them a modern makeover. Yes, this is a violent world that Nate inhabits, but he steers a true and moral course through the layers of deception, skullduggery and sometimes worse that make these stories such high-density entertainment.
