Editorial Reviews

Review

These comics are hilarious and strike a cord with anyone who has a liking to aviation making it the perfect gift idea for any occasion. The book itself is produced of very high quality material as well, making it an excellent tabletop piece and conversation item. The characters and artwork are superb. If you are looking for a 'winning' gift for the aviation loving person, this would be the one to get. You will have hours and hours of enjoyment and laughter from the Chicken Wings comics. --Pete Buffington - author of 'Squawk 7700'

This is the best collection of chicken strips yet! There is a lot of new material I have not seen before. I especially like the Alaska story. It's a great new addition to the familiar format. --Chuck Aaron, Chief Helicopter Pilot & Dir. of Maintenance at Red Bull, N.A.

About the Author

Michael Strasser is an experienced helicopter pilot and lives in Las Vegas, Nevada. After gathering many years of varied experience in aviations as a commercial pilot, aircraft mechanic, and flight instructor, Mike is now fighting the nation's wildland fires as the chief pilot for a helicopter company in California. You can probably guess where the bulk of ideas for 'Chicken Wings' comes from.

Stefan Strasser lives and works near Vienna, Austria as an accomplished cartoon artist and independent illustrator. He actually has what one could call a 'decent education' (a Masters Degree in International Trade), but decided to become a freelance artist, instead of finding a real job. 'Chicken Wings' is his most important project, but you can find his work in many other magazines, books, and newsletters around the world.

Format: Paperback
Chicken Wings 4 marks the fourth book from the Strasser brothers team (which is, I suspect, why they named the book Chicken Wings 4... but I'm just speculating). The comic strip is now into its second decade and the strips and panels of this volume are the best yet and demonstrate that the strip has matured into its own. Its own what I'm not sure, but it has matured. The strips are a mix of subjects from those with "in" jokes that aviation people (and chickens) will enjoy to those which will resonate with anyone who tries to run the gauntlet flying on the airlines as a passenger. After 10 years, the characters have become family for regular readers of the strip (some of them family members that you may not want to acknowledge are related to you, but still). Chicken Wings 4 is a great source of fun and diversion to any aviation enthusiast.

If you are seeking the right gift for an aviation buff, these comics are hilarious and a great idea for any gift giving occasion. The book itself is of high quality material, the pages are heavy and glossy. Mike and Stefan have developed an excellent character theme. Mike's experience in aviation and Stefan's creative artistic skills are a great match. Keep up the great work guys! -Pete Buffington, best selling aviation author "Squawk 7700".

I have been reading these aviation comics a long time, and have bought all 3 Chicken Wings books preceding this one. The last 3 were good, but book 4 tops the list! Well written with tons of content for everyone, pilot or not

Format: Paperback
I own the whole series so of course I had to go out and buy the latest one.
I think it's the best one yet!
I found the first book almost too technical where some of my family and friends,
who are not in aviation, didn't get some of the jokes.
But this one has laughs for everybody!
Even if you have never been around an airport you will get most of punchlines.
They aren't all aviation jargon as you might think.
After all the chickens do have an office in their hangar.
The Strasser brothers did a great job this time sticking to their roots of
classic aviation humor while at the same time inviting old and young to a round of laughs.
Its adult humor but the jokes are clean enough so all ages can enjoy them and
get something out of the book.
I highly recommend it! And it's great if you're looking for a gift!

Format: Paperback
This is book is great! it continues the adventures of the gang from Roost Air and sees them going off on a road trip(or should that be plane ride?) to the far north but since I will be hunted down and made to listen to some of Mike's pilot "There I was.."stories I can not tell you the ending of this mini series. This is probably the best book the Strasser brothers have come up with.......or until the next one is released. The book contains previously unrealesed strips so better buy it to see what else Julio and chuck get up to.
