Aviation’s Grim Reaper

An Army Apache helicopter pilot must watch his airspeed indicator or face the Grim Reaper.

An Army Apache helicopter pilot must watch his airspeed indicator during his “hey watch this” flying stunt or face Aviation’s Grim Reaper. Death is just nature’s way of telling you to watch your airspeed.

Here is the original sketch for the comic when I had the idea. It helped me think through whether to have it a one-panel or two-panel comic.


The Frontlines Comic Book

Hard to believe but they published some of the comics I drew during my 20-year military career! These humorous musings may make you laugh or offend others, but are the result of awesome mentors, great buddies and a deep appreciation for sarcastic humor. They officially released it on Veterans Day in either paperback or eBook for Kindle or iBooks. Here is a link to get a copy if interested.
