I am thrilled to announce the publication of THE WRAITH Vol. 1 from Airship 27 Productions. This book has been in the pipeline for a decade now so I am thrilled to see it finally getting in front of readers. This was my first time writing The Wraith, but my second time writing the character was published first when SANDERSON OF METRO premiered in 2017.
Frank Dirscherl, creator of the character, has also written other novels and comic books featuring The Wraith. You can find them HERE.
Official Press Release:
AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTIONS Presents THE WRAITH
For years Metro City has been watched and protected by the mystery man called The Wraith. Garbed in a black and blue outfit, cape and cowl, this masked vigilante possesses a unique energy power called the Judgment Stare by which he compels his prisoners to relive their crimes through the pain and suffering of their victims.
Created by writer Frank Dirscherl, the Dread Avenger of the Underworld first appeared as a comic series and then ultimately prose and even an independent film. Now Airship 27 presents four brand new Wraith stories by the best scribes in New Pulp. Along with Dirscherl, this volume features Greg Gick, Erik Franklin, Bobby Nash and Adam Oravec.
“I became a big fan of this character via his past comic book appearances,” reports Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “When Frank Dirscherl later approached me about a possible Airship 27 anthology of prose stories, it took me all of two seconds to sign on. Now, years later the book is completed and all of us are thrilled to have it out for Wraith fans everywhere.”
Whether battling criminal mobs, crooked cops or giant alligators in the sewers, the Wraith will stop at nothing to protect the citizens of Metro City. Beware the yellow glowing eyes of the Judgment Stare.
Artist Chris Nye provides the twelve interior illustrations and Adam Shaw the dynamic cover image. All assembled by Award Winning Art Director Rob

SANDERSON OF METRO
A novel featuring The Wraith by Frank Dirscherl and Bobby Nash
Two masters of the superhero pulp fiction world, Frank Dirscherl and Bobby Nash, have come together to tell this tale, the NEVER before told origin of the first Wraith/Paul Sanderson, as only they could.
Witness to the original Sanderson's early childhood, the emptiness in his soul, his yearning for meaning in his life, his finding it in the wilds of Africa and coming face-to-face with the man who would one day become his greatest nemesis. And finally, how he was endowed with the awesome powers of the Eyes of Judgment, becoming the very first Wraith Dread Avenger of the Underworld.
This action packed, atmospheric thrill ride could only be told now and could only be told by master storytellers like Dirscherl and Nash. An epic, never to be repeated and not to be missed.
