A throwback to the pulp-style books of yore.
Look here, Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips - you guys are seriously killing this whole quarantine thing. Not only did we get PULP not long ago, we now have the start of a whole series of graphic novels on the way, with this being the first introduction to Ethan Reckless and his associates. Could y'all quit making the rest of us look bad, please? (But don't stop making stuff, it's all great, really.)
This is not the Gerard Butler Dracula, we promise.
So, uh, if you're not a fan of the f-word, this is probably not the review for you - it's pretty hard to avoid when it's in the title of the book! But if you can look past that, you'll find an excellent horror graphic novel that subverts standard tropes and holds some of the best artwork Erica Henderson has ever produced. I mean, who doesn't love a 'dude in distress,' amiright?
Neo-Western without the depression spiral.
Our first stand-alone edition of 'Graphic Novelties,' where we discuss graphic novels, both new and old, that we think you should know about. This week, we're discussing the new Ed Brubaker & Sean Phillips book, 'PULP,' and all it's neo-western glory. A book Ed didn't even really want to make (thanks for prodding him, Sean!), this is an excellent tale with beautiful art. Time to add something a little heftier to your comic buy!
