Adventurous Reading: ALTERNATIVE AIR ADVENTURES
from the official press release . . . . . . One of the most intriguing genres in Classic Pulp Fiction focused on Aviation, the machines that conquered the skies and the people who flew them. Pro Se Productions makes its mark on that sub genre with an anthology that tackles Aviation fiction in tales without airplanes or other ‘normal’ air borne apparatus. ALTERNATIVE AIR ADVENTURES is now available in print and digital formats “People are fascinated by flying,” says Tommy Hancock, Partner in and Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “always have been. ALTERNATIVE AIR ADVENTURES continues that fascination by changing the status quo somewhat, something that New Pulp does a lot these days. Imagine that planes and typical helicopters and the like simply never developed. They never happened. How, then, would man have ever left the ground? Three of the best authors in Genre Fiction today tackle that question in this collection, and the stories are simply awesome. Combine that with the absolutely gorgeous cover by Michael Hegedus and this is a must have read!” FLIGHT! An ability that has always fascinated mankind and for centuries, a mystery that eluded those who sought it most! But, what if the discovery of such things as the airplane or helicopter had never occurred? What if the path to man gaining his own wings went other directions? Those worlds are imagined and come to life in Pro Se Productions’ ALTERNATIVE AIR ADVENTURES! Join authors Kevin Findley, Davide Mana, and Gene Moyers as they fly the wild and wonderful, sometimes unfriendly skies in machines from their minds. Heroes and villains combat one another high above the ground in ships that have only lived in dreams…until now. Climb aboard and strap in for ALTERNATIVE AIR ADVENTURES from Pro Se Productions!

SINK #3 (Comix Tribe, December 20, 2017 release date) “A Head Full Of Wasps”. Story by John Lees. Art and Colours by Alex Cormack. Letters by Shawn Lee. Logo by Tim Daniel. Sink #3 will make you see red. Blood red. It’s splashed all over the pages of this story, seeping into each and every panel, even before the violence begins. “A Head Full Of Wasps” speaks to the buzzing that occurs in so many brainpans in these troubled and violent times - - and the red that is visualized when some of us experience injustice, brutality, cruelty, or abuse and then seek retribution, revenge, and bloody justice. If only everyone could read this story, and then remember it whenever their cheeks flush with anger - - and think before they act. Yeah, I’m a pipe dreamer. I also just set out to write a review. Don’t know why I’m treating SINK #3 like this is a morality fable. Have you ever read a simple but well-written story that leads to your thinking outside the box about oth…

With Neil Gaiman revisiting the Sandman universe with his new mini, Sandman: Overture, this seemed like a good time to review his original masterpiece. In the first volume, the Sandman is captured by a rich occultist who endeavors to capture Death and make it do his bidding. Instead, he captures the Sandman whom he imprisons for 70 years. Eventually escaping, he learns that the symbols of his office have since been turned into powerful relics used by the mystical community. On a search for the symbols of his station from which he draws power, the Sandman must deal with Constantine, go through Hell itself, and stop a deranged inmate of Arkham who suddenly has power and the sick mind to put it to use. Neil Gaiman likely needs no introduction if you’re familiar with Sandman. It’s his best known work and one of the few graphic novels ever to make the New York Times Bestselle…
