Airboy (#1-4)

Worlds and minds exploded when acclaimed comics author James Robinson (Starman, Fantastic Four) is hired to write a reboot of the 1940s action hero Airboy, he’s reluctant to do yet another Golden Age reboot. Just what the hell has happened to his career–?! His marriage?! His life?! Hey, it’s nothing that a drink can’t fix. It’s after one such night of debauchery with artist Greg Hinkle that the project really comes into its own.

Quite literally. Because Airboy himself appears to set the two depraved comic book creators on the straight and narrow. But is the task too much for our hero?

By Issue 2 the drugs wearing off… or they just kicking in?

After a night of debauchery, James and Greg have a hell of a hangover in the form of 1940s comic book character Airboy. The aviation hero is curious to learn what the future has to offer.

By Issue 3 Airboy has been pushed to breaking point by the drug, booze and sex fueled actions of James and Greg. In order to straighten these two degenerates out, Airboy has taken them to his world: a steampunk arena of Allies vs. Nazis. But will the experience change James and Greg for the better? Will they finally see the light? Or will they corrupt this world too?

When Issue 4 kicks in the question of whether or not this is some messed up dream or an even more messed up reality is prevalent. All James and Greg know is that now that they’re in Airboy’s world and not the bars of San Francisco, they have to put down the bottle, put away the drugs, zip up their flies—and actually act like heroes.

Except they don’t know how to be heroes. And if they die, will they just wake up…or really perish?
