Our Story

It's 1943 and a top World War Two B-17 Bomber crew is given a secret mission to destroy Hitler’s Eagles Nest compound in the German Black Forest.  Unimaginable terrors await them as the operation unravels and the crew discovers a hidden land of medieval knights and undead monsters dislodged in time... 

About Flying Fortress Volume One
Flying Fortress is published in a bimonthly comic book format by Eric Weathers and Andy Moore.   

Flying Fortress Volume One arrives in late April 2012.  It collects the material from our first five comic books: Issue #0 through Issue #4, and also includes the premiere of our first Reader Compendium and a gallery of selected art from the Flying Fortress studios!

Volume One is over 140 pages long and includes:

  • Flying Fortress #1
  • Flying Fortress #2
  • Flying Fortress #3
  • Flying Fortress #4
As well as:
  • Flying Fortress #0
  • Flying Fortress Reader's Compendium #1
  • A Pinup, Covers, and sketch art Gallery
  • and much more!

The Impact
This project is the most direct way to get our books you, and we are so thankful for your support!  

As indie comic book publishers, the direct connection to our readers is everything to us. It’s amazing to see the support and culture that has grown around creator-owner indie comics, and your order helps us reach new readers, publish more awesome books and meet fans across the nation at conventions.

What We Need, and What You Get!
We are self-publishing Flying Fortress Volume One, and are offering a first (and limited edition!) printing to our loyal fans, friends and families here through a donation model.  We are embarking on a comic book convention tour again in 2012, and all support we get will go towards the production of volume one and the convention circuit.

For all levels of donation, we have compiled awesome perks to reward you for your support of the project.


 Thanks For Your Support- Here's Some Awesome Stuff!

Everyone who donates will be included in the ‘Thank You’ pages in Flying Fortress Volume One, and our perks range from merchandise like comic books to custom bomber jackets, and exclusive items from original comic art to including YOU drawn into in our comics!  (That’s right- you can be in Flying Fortress!)

Other Ways You Can Help
You can help spread the word about our campaign! Our dream is to have as many readers as possible experience Flying Fortress, so by telling anyone who would be interested in our crazy little adventure comic book project, you are helping us make the dream a reality.

We’ve got a facebook fan page, an official twitter account, and a website where you can connect, get involved, win prizes and keep your finger on the pulse of Flying Fortress.  Kickstarter has also incorporated awesome sharing tools here on the campaign, and we’d be honored if you’d share our project with your friends (especially anyone who loves WWII, knights or zombies!)

Special thanks to StickerGiant.com for their awesome stickers and support!
