Women of Airlandia, part 2

This is the followup to an earlier post that had sketches of Eeleta, the daughter of Airlandia’s previous ruler and Kala, the daughter of Emperor Aerozar. Both characters had big roles in Marvel’s short-lived comic series and I assume Eeleta would have shown up in the cartoon based on the illustrations they had. As discussed…… Continue reading Women of Airlandia, part 2

Transformers and Air Raiders

When Bludgeon reactivates the monster Trypticon and threatens the unborn lives of the next generation of Cybertronians, the Dinobots join forces with Sandstorm for one last ride. A short post here but a fun nod to the greater Hasbro universe. In 2017, IDW publishing created a limited series of comics (The Transformers: Redemption of the…… Continue reading Transformers and Air Raiders

Air Raiders #5: Winds in the Darkness

The last of the Air Raiders comics has arrived. I’d like to say they go out with style but this was by far the weakest issue of the lot. The plot was confusing and felt really rushed. I wonder if the writer, George Caragonne, ended up cramming a whole story arc into one comic once…… Continue reading Air Raiders #5: Winds in the Darkness

Air Raiders #2 “Subterfuge”

The story introduces Eeleta, daughter of Archion, the ruler that Aerozar deposed. She is smart, capable warrior and she and Rokk have an ulterior plan in addition to the…… Continue reading Air Raiders #2 “Subterfuge”

Air Raiders #1 “Sins of the Father”

Swashbuckling super-action on a far-out fantasy filled world! This is the first installment of my reviews for the 5 issues that were created. I’m going to be upfront at the beginning, I love these comics. Written by Howard Mackie and drawn by Kelley Jones, these books have that old-fashioned feel to them, reminding me of…… Continue reading Air Raiders #1 “Sins of the Father”

The Rise of Aerozar

Some thoughts on the history of the Airlandia; it was once a peaceful empire that spanned the globe until a passing comet threw the world and it’s people into chaos. The passage of the comet caused the planet to lose most of it’s atmosphere and to be thrown off it’s axis. The resulting environmental disasters…… Continue reading The Rise of Aerozar
