Altus Press continues its torrid release schedule, this time taking to the skies to showcase two of the best air war pulp hero series.
Dusty Ayres and his Battle Birds #2: Crimson Doom features the next installment in this futuristic war series from the 1930s, complete with the original illustrations from the vintage pulp. Robert Sidney Bowen continues his chronicling of the “next great War.”
The Complete Air Adventures of Gales & McGill, Volume 1: 1927–29 contains the first half of one of Frederick Nebel’s longest-running series. Most of these stories have never before been reprinted, and certainly never with their illustrations. It’s also rounded out with an all-new introduction by pulp historian John Locke.
