WARBIRDS OF MARS Golden Age pg2-3 by DocRedfield WARBIRDS OF MARS Golden Age pg2-3 by DocRedfield
These are two more pages from the forthcoming dieselpunk/New-Pulp Comic/Eventual graphic Novel WARBIRDS OF MARS
We just launched the Kickstarter: www.kickstarter.com/projects/s…

The idea is to do an all new, color graphic novel at the 'Golden-age' (or roughly Magazine) size format that picks up where we leave off on the web and tell a dramatic, action-packed completion to the current story arc. To that end, I wanted to sort of re-introduce the characters and concepts and reveal that a year or two has passed (so it’s 1950 or ‘51), so the diesel-punk flavor has been amped. Here was see JACK PARIS and JOSIE TAYLOR, HUNTER NOIR and MR. Mask of the Martian Killers in the hidden Underground Base beneath Coney Island, NY...
The P-51s - as you may question - have been retrofitted with reverse-engineered 'Martian' technology. This allows them to use a sort of anti-gravity wave to get airbourne, then engage their prop engines and speed off and out of the hanger.

Pgs 2-3 is a double-page spread, inked with microns on two 11x17 comic boards, Aprox. 40 hrs from concept to complete inks plus another day in Adobe Photoshop (with Special Thanks to Davi-ann and Bill Farmer)
 
We could really use your support crowdfunding this project. Check out the video; you get to see me and some friends in 40s threads doing our own Newsreel to push the concept.

The train looks like an ex LMS Duchess class in its original streamlined form.

NO!! Jesus... No. It's a girl - if she's peeing standing in those overalls, she has wet overalls.

The train is part of an secret underground rail system the 'Martian Killers' use. I also figured it hauls stuff between the underground hangers possibly. 
...more to come!

It's like 30% "Doctor Who" loves the 80's, and 70% Doctor who LOVES the 80's.

You are the first person to ask me that since I first joined nearly a year ago!
