Here’s a shoutout to Julie, one of our biggest fans out there! If you’ve ever been to an air show, you probably have met her, if only unknowingly. But I think there’s no air show she doesn’t go to. Thanks for giving us the idea for this strip!
I wonder if curling is the sport he would pick, but as long as heli skiing is not an Olympic discipline, I can’t think of a more suitable sport. At least he can keep on his sunglasses then!
Well it’s been a while since we had some extra-curricular activities here at Roost Air, but now we finally have some news again for you! Here we go …

CHUCK’S HELICOPTER ADVENTURES
This is our first comic book just for you with 36 pages of Chuck’s helicopter adventures!
We are trying something new this time by going with a classic comic book / magazine type format and focusing simply on just a bunch of Chuck’s colorful helicopter comics. By dropping the fancy thick book cover we are able to give this to you for a classic comic book price as well.
Included in this book are our collection of helicopter and helicopter-related strips from Chuck’s adventures, some of them from our other books but with previously unpublished material included as well.
Also new is that we are including a few very early black-and-white classics with a little history about how they came to be and stories about the initial days of Chicken Wings.
You can now pay us with Bitcoin! Our shop software doesn’t enable us yet to offer you an integrated payment system, so we can only do this manually. Just send us an email with a list of stuff you want to buy, your address and any gift or promo codes you potentially possess, and we will reply to you as quickly as possible with the total of your purchase in Bitcoin currency, and the Bitcoin address for the transaction.
The price of Bitcoin is volatile. In order to be fair to both parties and even out some of the daily spikes, we will look up the global average price of the day that you sent your email on bitcoinaverage.com and use the daily average exchange rate for our conversion.
Stef wanted to do this for over a year now, but those of us who know us, also know how slow we are with implementing changes in our website. But now that Bitcoin got a new level of publicity, we want to seize the opportunity to jump on the bandwagon. If we’re late or early, time will tell, but we’re intrigued by the idea of a truly decentralized global currency and wanted to contribute our tiny share to its success.
Calling all Chicken Wings fans from Austria and vincinity! I will be going to Air Expo in Zell am See, Austria next weekend! It takes place on Saturday and Sunday (Sept. 7th and 8th) at the Zell am See airport. We’ll have our own Chicken Wings booth! So, if you’re already planning on going there, please make sure to drop by and pay me a visit at our table! I’ll be there the whole time, flogging and signing our books.
If you live close by and are still on the fence, well, now you’ve got another reason to go! And if you’re based somewhere further away, you can maybe combine the visit to the expo with a short vacation in the beautiful landscape of Salzburg. There’s a very beautiful lake, just a stone’s throw away from the airport, as the name “Zell am See” suggests.
Hope to see you there!
EDIT: I originally posted the wrong days: It’s Saturday and Sunday, 7.-8. Sept. !!
We have made a few changes in our online shops. From now on, our “Chicken Wings Combo” will include all 4 books for a great price.
It’s the same thing though. Why does it have two different names then? We don’t know. It was Chuck’s decision.
But here is what it is: We took all of our books and mixed them together with the 3 Martin Leeuwis books that also feature our comics. These 3 Books feature aviation comics and cartoons from artists from all over the world (the highlight being Chuck and Julio, of course. Duh!).
And to top it off we have also added the latest Ding Duck Book from our dear friend Gary Clark. It’s a collection of all kinds of Ding Duck and Aviation related comics from the famous Australian Comic series “The Swamp”.
So, if you like reading aviation cartoons about everything related to flying from gliders to military jets. Everything in between, and see chickens and ducks fly, this will be your best source!
