My favorited parts are the angel/devil characters, and of course the skeleton map   :)

Luftritter, a late response to your response.  I am glad you enjoyed the Angel / Devil themes.  They showed up kind of on their own and became important to me. 

 

When I researched historical soldier's sketchbooks, humor was a big part of the art work you see.  The Blue Max story line was so dark, that it was a relief to add some fun to it.  I started treating it like Spy vs Spy in Mad Magazine ( if you are from the right era you will know what I am talking about).  Sometimes they are very serious and really reinforce the story.  You can only do so much with photos of aircraft and fake newspaper headlines.  Sometimes they hit the theme of the chapter right between the eyes.

 

The really funny part is after the first couple appearances I realized they were starting to look just like my Sister and Brother-in-law.  Since then I have absolutely used them as the models for the look of them ( as you would expect my brother-in-law thinks its funny, my sister is politely tolerating them.)

CHAPTER TWELVE – WILI’S LAST SORTIE

http://www.thebluema...is-last-sortie/

Rupp gets sent in to clean up another crash site, but this time the tragic death is close to home.   Wili Klugermann and Bruno Stachel return from a successful sortie in a heavy mist.  Stachel gets credited with three more kills, but Wili ends up wrapped around a factory chimney on the edge of town.  Just one of those fluke accidents…..or was it?

 

The next chapter will be June 8th.

Really amazing work, Geezer. I love the fold-out photograph, and the newspaper title clippings. It really makes it feel like a real journal. Looking forward to the next chapter!

As always, a great addition.  I really love the chapter images, btw.  Especially this weeks.  The airship poster is really cool.

I love that type of commercial art.  It's beautifully done.
