Countdown to Yankee Girl by Mark Heike

Yankee Girl Page 10That speed-demon inker Scott Shriver  has begun firing in finished pages on his collaboration with Eric Coile for the Bill Black-scripted story to appear in the upcoming YANKEE GIRL: STARS and STRIPES FOREVER one-shot coming early next year. Check out this page for a look at just how awesome this story will be.  In addition, Bill (Big Man) Black has started production work on a special Golden Age feature that will be in this book. We were not sure initially that we’d be able to make it work, but it looks like it’ll be a go. More details on it as we get closer to presstime, but rest assured that it will be a rare treat indeed!. Now don’t forget to toddle on down to your local comicbook retailer and order this book, as there is still time.Simply tell him you want Yankee Girl: Stars and Stripes Forever #1, listed on page 224 of the December issue of Diamond Previews, with a catalog product # of STY458154, and a DCD item # of DEC110766. Don’t forget, this tome will also feature another all-new, never-before-seen YG tale written AND drawn by the multi-talented Rock Baker; reprints of out-of-print & hard to find AC Yankee Girl stories from the 1990’s, and maybe even another surprise or two!! Speaking of that art fiend Rock Baker (who is about as fast a penciler as Scott Shriver is an inker- and it’s a good thing, too-) the titanic team of  Baker and Shriver will shortly begin work on illustrating an issue of The Saint for our friends over at Moonstone Comics. Be sure to watch for it in an upcoming issue of Diamond Previews. We’d almost be jealous of the Moonstone gang, if not for the fact that Rock and Scott are already working their fingers to the bone on SO MANY projects for AC, I can’t keep track of them!!

    My order is already in the system and after viewing the panel contained in your article I am really hot to see the finished product.
    I note with pleasure the presence of the Panda -the Red Chinese super agent and sworn enemy of American Freedom (and one of your own characters.) I’m glad to see him in action again.
    I’m happy to see Lady Luger in the line up .Her presence will mean a lot of grief for the heroes (and a great story)
    And is that the arch villain Dr. Noah Khan and his wicked daughter Lu Sin I see in the last two panels? -last seen in Bill blacks Fun Comics # 2 -in the Fighting Yank -Bail Out at Ground Zero story.That story ended with the promise that the world will hear of Dr. Noah again I am glad to see that the prophesy has come to pass ( I always knew it would be )
    Thanks in advance for this great story and all the other -sure to be excellent stories in this upcoming book.

      Sharp eye, there, Jimbo! Yes, indeed… the evil and buxom Lu Sin is on hand representing her fearful father. This yarn takes place in 1956 and guest stars, as you see on this page, NIGHTVEIL’s brother, ROGER WRIGHT as THE AVENGER. Also guest starring is NBC TODAY SHOW host, DAVE GARROWAY, tho I failed to fit in Dave’s nemesis, J. Fred Muggs!

    I don’t know if I’m a speed-demon, Mark, but I am persistent…thanks for the mention of not only the AC stuff, but the Moonstone project as well!

    Yes, thank you very much for the kind words, Mark! This SAINT project marks a real departure for me, not a single cheesecake panel to be found! Once I finish with the project, I’ll be chomping at the bit to draw another AC episode, I reckon!
