The Crimson Mask is back…and Airship 27 Productions has him! The Crimson Mask, the first title in an on-going series, features four brand new adventures by some of today’s finest pulp writers.
Veteran Police Sergeant Clarke is gunned down by hoodlums, shot in the back of the head. As he lay dying, a rush of blood to his face formed a macabre mask, a crimson mask! When his son, Doctor Robert “Bob” Clarke, saw that strange stigmata he interpret it as a sign, inspiring him to become his father’s avenger, the Crimson Mask!
Once again Airship 27 Productions digs into the dusty vaults of long forgotten, second tier pulp heroes to revitalize another great character in brand new, exciting adventures. Writers J. Walt Layne, Terrence McCauley, C. William Russette and Gary Lovisi took on the challenge of creating new, bizarre mysteries for the pharmacist turned crime-fighter and, in doing so, have put together a terrific collection of fast paced pulp action echoing the thrills of the original classics.
“All of which is why Airship 27 Productions exist,” reaffirms Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “Specifically for great, fun characters like this one. Characters relegated to forgotten back files of the classic pulp hero ranks. Well, not anymore. The Crimson Mask always had the potential to be something better; now our writers and artists are making that happen.”
Aided by retired Police Commissioner Warrick, his former college roommate David Small, and lovely nurse, Sandra Gray, the Crimson Mask must hunt down the villainous distributors of tainted heroin, stop an invisible thief, learn who ignited the latest city gang war and solve a killer targeting his father’s allies.
Talented artist, Andy Fish, provides twelve stark black and white interior illustrations plus a truly wonderful, colorful and iconic pulp cover painting. Art Director, Rob Davis, handles book design to offer a truly stunning, quality package that will delight even the most jaded pulp fan.
