Smoke Wade Art 2/34-9/35

By Frederick Blakeslee

While all of the Age of Aces aviation titles feature the original artwork for each story, it has been modified to better fit our book designs. In general, the original artwork flowed around the opening of the adventure, but in our volumes it’s expanded to fill an entire page or spread to serve as a “cover” to the story. Also, to unify the book we run the story’s title in our own font, stripping out the lettering done by the artist. Here on the web though we can offer a “dvd extra” of sorts—the full, unmodified artwork as it originally appeared in the pulp.

All art by Frederick Blakeslee except Dare-Devil Aces 2/35, “Bull’s-Eye Buzzards,” by Josef Katula.

As a bonus, here’s two of Blakeslee’s two-page spreads—”The Pirate Patrol” and “The Dynamite Trio”—as we’ve edited them togother for use in our book. Unfortunately all our hard work is lost in the gutter, but here you can enjoy Blakeslee’s art as he maybe would have joined the two parts together.
