What have I been up to?

Nothing very noteworthy, I'm afraid. I'm still working on Doc Crater, which I started over a year ago, intending to put up a new chapter on Patreon every month. I have managed to complete a grand total of two. Life gets in the way of things sometimes. I had a not-so-good year personally, and am dealing with ISSUES-- as are we all, I guess. Also working on a new Bay Phantom and some other things, and wondering where I go from here. I want to do something different, but I don't yet know what. In the meantime, I've been collecting comics again, in a modest way. Here are a few of my recent acquisitions:

ONLY 99 CENTS. CHEAP. Hollywood, 1933. A drunken, hedonistic, not-too-bright movie idol decides to don a mask and fight crime. Can this possibly end well? Part One of Three.

The pioneer of what has come to be known as Psychedelic Pulp brings his mix of madness and adventure to digital singles. Chuck Miller, the creator of The Black Centipede introduces The Fabulous World of Zenith, an original series that will examine the world of the Black Centipede, Vionna Valis, Mary Kelly and Doctor Unknown Junior from a variety of strange and oblique angles. 

The first episode in Miller’s latest arc focuses on the Red Dagger. Is it a masked demon filling citizens' hearts with fear? Or a horrific disease spreading through the world like wildfire? Perhaps a brave hero forced to hide her identity due to some secret? Or a top secret government operation intent on dominating humanity? Only Chuck Miller knows, but every reader will discover the mystery in the Fabulous World of Zenith when THE RED DAGGER STRIKES! BOOK ONE Now Available from Pro Se Productions!



Available from Amazon in print and Kindle. 

Airship 27 Productions, a leader in the New Pulp publishing community, is excited to present the second book in writer Chuck Miller’s series; “The Bay Phantom – Feast of the Cannibal Guild.” 

When a shadowy group of criminals start shaking down restaurants in Mobile, Joe Perrone once again dons the cloak and goggles of the Bay Phantom. Shortly thereafter, wealthy young men begin dropping dead without warning. What do these things have in common with a mysterious psychic, a sinister funeral home, and a nationalist movement known as the Transatlantic Patriots Guild? 

That is what the Bay Phantom must learn, and he must do it without his trusted aide, Mirabelle Darcy. She is away on a mission of her own; one that necessitates her breaking into the Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary. Thus left to his own devices, can the Phantom thwart the Cannibal Guild and their deadly assassin, the Mummifier? Or will he become their next victim? 

“Chuck Miller is one of the most original writers in New Pulp today,” states Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor, Ron Fortier. “His storytelling is truly unique and he envisions the most startling characters, both good and bad, ever to grace a pulp thriller. When Miller puts a spin on a tale, you’d best hang for a truly wild ride.” 

Once again Chuck Miller offers up a thrilling new adventure set in the Deep South and starring his original pulp hero; The Bay Phantom. This is pulp action with an added spicy kick. Along for the adventure are cover artist Adam Shaw and, debuting for the first time with Airship 27, interior illustrator, Kevin Paul Shaw Broden.

Doc Crater?

Who is Doc Crater? That's a good question; one he himself is unable or unwilling to answer. He is a man of mystery, with curious tastes and abilities. The possibility exists that he is not entirely sane, but this is offset by the fact that he is spectacularly rich, and seems to be a decent guy.

What does he do? For several years, he has been on a worldwide search for eight mysterious “artifacts.” He presumably knows what they are and what they can do, but he’s not telling anybody-- not even his closest associates. In the course of this quest, he has run up against some of the world’s worst criminal masterminds-- because mysterious artifacts have a way of ending up in the hands of arch-fiends-- and defeated them soundly.

He has secured two of the artifacts. And now a third has surfaced, in a small town in the American South. In order to get his hands on it, Doc must face a trio of diabolical adversaries: his childhood arch-enemy, Baron Modor Fogar; the insidious Judge Innsmouth and his Sisters of Perpetual Derision; and the corrupt, power-hungry President of the United States, Dagwood V. Tremens.

Aiding him in this mission are the members of Doc Crater’s team of specialists: Right-hand man Todd Tyler; Possibly-Undead Edweena, a brilliant scientist who claims to be a 400-year-old vampire; Rondo and Mondo, the Twins, a pair of ruthless mercenaries; the Incomprehensible Murk, a strange product of science gone extremely careless; and Debbie Daniels, an alcoholic goth poet who has no clue why she has been recruited by Crater.

All this and entirely too much more in “Doc Crater and the Third Artifact,” by Chuck Miller, only on Patreon.
