|All three of these characters will play a|
part in future Airboy stories.
He certainly isn’t a character that went without a revival in the 1980s. Chuck Dixon and Tim Truman created a rather amazing series at Eclipse (now being collected by IDW) with art by the likes of Stan Woch, Ben Dunn, Ron Randall and Tom Lyle.
|Flying Dutchman will be the first other Air Fighter to|
make an appearance in the new book.
I wanted to go back to the original, I wanted to make him a fish out of water and I wanted to update the Air Fighters in a very different way.
In my initial short story, Misery and the Airtomb play their part in the first story, but they are really a subplot as Airboy finds himself young and alive again in the early 1980s. He’s immediately thrust into a plot to stop the massive super-weapon that nearly killed him once before.
The tale will hopefully kickoff a new series of adventures starring the high-flying adventurer beginning in 2017.
