I posted before about my art contribution to The Masked Rider Vol II. Now I want to get the word out that the book is now on sale. Here’s a press release from Airship 27 Productions that displays the Cover Art by Andy Fish:
THE MASKED RIDER
Wild West Tales Vol II
Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to put on its spurs and chaps to announce the release of its second Masked Rider anthology; THE MASKED RIDER – Wild West Tales Vol. II
After the bloody City War ended, the rugged landscape that was the frontier west was soon flooded by all manner of immigrants; from cowboys, pioneer settlers and an all manner of outlaws. In their path the various Indian tribes desperate to save their lands. Soon the mountains, plains and valleys echoed with the sounds of gunfire and bloodshed flowed like rivers in these lawless territories.
Then a masked man appeared on the scene, his twin Colts barking out justice. He and his Yaqui partner, Blue Hawk, rode these endless trails protecting law and order wherever they went. He was known as the Masked Rider and now he returns in three brand new gun-blazing adventures by writers Erwin K. Roberts, Bill Craig and Roman Leary.
“Our first volume was a mix of western heroes, both real and fictional,” elaborates Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor, Ron Fortier. “This time our writers all wanted to write about this classic western pulp hero and we had no problems with that whatsoever. He’s a great character to write.” A popular figure in the days of the original pulps, the Masked Rider was one of the few that actually made it to the comics and appeared in his own title for many years.
This book features twelve interior illustrations by commercial artist, and teacher, Tom Rubalcava with a pulp inspired cover painting by Andy Fish, a self-confessed Masked Rider fan.
So now it’s time to saddle up, pulp readers, for classic western action as only the Masked Rider can deliver.
