It's been a while since the last time we had a new volume of The Commodore, but welcome back!

Folks are, understandably, more interested in shooting down enemy fighters than writing about it or drawing it most of the year... until Raise the Flag, which seems to be the right catalyst for all that creative energy being stored up over the course of the year. And this year is no different, with some great work having been turned in by a number of pilots throughout the Corps.

First, I'll point out the winning entries for the Fiction Bonus Competition for Raise the Flag 2018:

Winners of the Graphics Bonus Competition for Raise the Flag 2018:

  • First place - COL Hawkins
  • Second place - GN Pickled Yoda
  • Third place - GN Jarek La'an
  • Fourth place - LCM Lucifer Scorpio Romanov
  • Fifth place - GN Elwood the Brave
  • Sixth place - GN Mark Schueler

In addition, we have other fiction and graphics submissions that weren't for the bonus competitions and a few that appeared after RtF had ended. There's lots to see and it's all right here in the newsletter. Enjoy!
