The Green Ghost Returns!

 
Airship 27 Productions is happy to announce the release of our latest classic pulp anthology featuring one of the most exciting pulp heroes ever; George Chance -The Green Ghost!

Former stage magician, George Chance, by various twists of fate, becomes an eerie vigilante to help the police solve baffling, unique mysteries. He is aided by his loyal crew made up of former glamor girl, Merry White, circus little man, Tiny Tim Terry, former bookmaker and gambler Joe Harper and Glenn Saunders, a novice magician who is his identical double.

“Initially, this series was published under the title, The Ghost, recalls Airship 27 Managing Editor, Ron Fortier. “It was only later, after several painted covers portrayed the Ghost as having a green skull face that the title was changed. But that wasn’t the end of it. It seems there was still another earlier Green Ghost in the pulps. Written by Johnston McCuley, this Irish themed avenger wore a green hood over his head and was a typical crime fighting hero. The magic background in George Chance’s career is what set him apart in a very cool way.”

Created by writer G.T. Fleming-Roberts, the Green Ghost that inspired the Airship 27 title and his team battled all manner of villainy in some of the most macabre pulp adventures ever recorded. Now Chance & Company are back in four brand new tales as chronicled by a quarter of today’s finest New Pulp writers; Michael Panush, Greg Hatcher, B.C. Bell and Erwin K. Roberts. In these pages the Green Ghost faces a giant mechanical monster on a long abandoned boardwalk, attempts to solve the murder of his old mentor, and uncovers a ring of foreign saboteurs using radio frequencies to carry out their missions of terror and destruction.

With art by the amazing Zachary Brunner and designs by Pulp Factory Award Winner, Rob Davis, George Chance -The Green Ghost is another foray into the exciting world of the classic pulps. Here are pulp thrills and spills showcasing one of the most original pulp heroes ever invented, brought to you by Airships 27 Productions, the new home of High Adventure.
