PULP! The Art of Rob Davis
With a background as a successful, highly respected comic book artist, Davis quickly established himself as a gifted book illustrator when he took on that role for the company’s first titles three titles, The Hounds of Hell, Brother Bones – The Undead Avenger and Secret Agent X – Vol One.
“It was always agreed our books would feature interior illustrations,” explains Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor, Ron Fortier. “Having Rob Davis on board to provide the illustrations for those early titles was such a thrill for us and a major part of our success in the burgeoning New Pulp field.”
In the ten years Davis has been associated with the company, he has done hundreds of illustrations featuring both classic and new pulp heroes to include Secret Agent X, Captain Hazzard, the Moon Man, the Black Bat and dozens of others. In his drawings for the Airship 27 Sherlock Holmes anthology series, he’s made a reputation as one of the premier Holmes & Watson artist working today. That was solidified when he won the first ever Pulp Factory Award in 2009 in the Best Interior Illustrations category for his work in Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective Vol One.
PULP – The Art of Rob Davis is the first published collection of Davis’ remarkable work and contains 175 black and white pieces; all of which have appeared in the pages of various Airship 27 Productions books. Adds Fortier, “We’ve no doubt this book will soon become a collector’s item to any true pulp fan who appreciates the role of art in the history of pulp fiction.” The book features an Introduction by award-winning British writer I.A. Watson and Fortier provides a post-essay to round the volume.
