Presenting the first issue of "Adventures of F19". The idea behind this comic was to do some sorts of combat report from online flying instead of only screenshots as we in F19 use to. But as work progressed i realised its far too time consuming to do stuff like this after every sortie (this comic took several weeks to finish!). Still, kinda fun to do anyway. Hope you like it. There might be some errors in the text (im a foreigner after all). If you notice any, please notify and ill fix it.

(Edit: fixed grammatical error)

Super work! You asked for a little help with the English...there is one small mistake:
Page 10, Panel 3, the text should read "With the agility of my Hayabusa gone, white stars ARE closing in from all directions."

The Dornier Do-17, another brilliant example of German engineering, a ?Schnellbomber" which could just outrun all fighters, this plane led to the German victory in the Battle of Britain and indeed, the Second World War.

In general I'm with everyone, this rocks.

In specific I'm with Orheim, J8a vs TB3 would be very tasty.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

What really impressed me was that put on cheap paper it could be from any number of war themed comics I read as a kid.

Actually this is probably a better read than a lot of those were back then. Only thing is theirs would have ended with with the pilot being picked up by a radio vessel or some such and shaking his fist at the"Yankee Dogs" and vowing vengance.

I'm looking forward to the next installment whatever the plane set is.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

No, I don't believe he posts his work anywhere, just runs them at night......

It really is a stunning mission. This particualr one he seemed to stumble on the right combination of time/weather/map/cloud height (not that he doesn't often anyways)...Then utilized the I-153, I-16-18, J8, Gr-42?,TB3 (I believe), etc. and others to make a mission I believe might be Finnland?......Anywho, it is almost impossible to see opponents, the turbulance is so bad that it makes shooting a near impossibility, more so it also makes the planes being carb fed cut out constantly......

So you're left with some serious options, fight hard, carb/wing stall and die, or fight wise, and struggle to survive accepting if you drop another it was well earned...On and on....Just turned out to be one of those great missions yet VERY difficult........Yet is pretty common for his work.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Btw Billfish. I remember I joined a coop which you hosted where we spawned at dawn, in Nates in small boathouses by a river.. very tricky to "taxi" but great fun. Do you still have that mission?<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
