Welcome back to yet another edition of Pulp! It’s been a hectic few weeks for me – what with doing a summer class at uni and all – so I haven’t been able to devote anywhere near enough time to reading comics as I would like, but hey, that’s life for you.
Have you ever been out at night in a big city, where everything feels wrong? There’s something off; every hair is standing on end, and you walk as fast as you can just to get away. Gotham City strikes me as the kind of place that would be like that 24/7, and that’s before accounting for the various villains (and bat-themed heroes) running around and messing everything up.
Hold onto your pants, folks – this week Pulp’s going back to its roots! Waaay, way back when this column began, there was originally a horror/pulp fiction theme interwoven with the comic-y goodness, and there was another guy hanging around (Hi Cam!).
Well hello again! It’s that time of the week again where I carry on about comics. Hopefully by now those of you that are still at school/uni have finished by now and you’re on holidays – now the year is over, there’s plenty of time to read comics, right?
Well hi there, gang! It’s that time of the week again where I sit down and babble about comics. Now that I’m done with uni for the year, you’d think that I’d have plenty of time to kick back and read all day, but sadly that’s not the case – as the saying goes, there’s no rest for the wicked!
How are we all this week? I hope you all had a suitably spooky Halloween, and that you were able to make it to the Halloween ComicFest – there’s nothing quite like free comics! While my own enthusiasm for Halloween may be at an all-time low – working in retail will do that to you – I figured I’d at least try to stay on theme for once.
What’s going on, Pulp peeps? Hope you’re all having a swell day. I know I am – at the time of writing this, the new Star Wars trailer has gone live, so I’m in nerd heaven right now. Speaking of nerd heaven – don’t forget that Halloween Comicfest (a.k.a. October’s Free Comic Book Day) is coming up on the 31st- make sure you swing by Gifts for the Geek and snag yourselves some awesome free stuff!
By now, I think my love for DC’s master of magic – and king of the bastards – John Constantine is pretty well documented. His original series – the classic Hellblazer – might be dead and buried, but courtesy of the New 52 reboot, ol’ John is still kicking along, only this time he’s rubbing shoulders with the likes of the Justice League.
