Mistakes, misshapes, misfits, raised on a diet of broken biscuits…
One of the biggest selling original graphic novels in comic book shops this year was by Ed Brubaker, Sean Phillips and Jacob Phillips‘ My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies. Well, for 2020, they have another just as likely to hit the charts. It’s called Pulp. It’s out on May 26th 2020 from Image Comics. And it’s 72 pages long. Here’s the listing;
A gorgeous original graphic novel from the best-selling creators of KILL OR BE KILLED, MY HEROES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN JUNKIES, and CRIMINAL.
Max Winters, a pulp writer in 1930s New York, finds himself drawn into a story not unlike the tales he churns out at 5 cents a word – tales of a wild west outlaw dispensing justice with a six-gun. But will Max be able to do the same, when pursued by bank robbers, Nazi spies, and enemies from his past?
One part thriller, one part meditation on a life of violence, PULP is unlike anything the award-winning team of BRUBAKER and PHILLIPS have ever done. A celebration of pulp fiction, set in a world on the brink. And another must-have hardback from one of comics most-acclaimed teams.
Here’s a shot from Sean Phillips’ Instagram which may have something to do with Pulp – and may not. Still pretty.
