CLOSING OUT THIS MOONSTONE MONDAY-TIPPIN’ HANCOCK’S HAT TO MOONSTONE’S PULP HANDBOOK!
FROM THE VAULT: THE PULP FILES
MOONSTONE BOOKS-THE RETURN OF THE ORIGINALS
Wow. If it were kosher to leave one word reviews, then that would be my one word. This fine compendium of fact sheets on pulp characters that will appear in Moonstone’s RETURN OF THE ORIGINALS line does not tell a story in a traditional comic sense, but it sure weaves a tale of heroes, tragedy, justice, and redemption like none you’ve ever read. From The Spider to the Green Lama to The Golden Amazon and Death Angel (Who? Why new additions to the genre of course), the breadth of pulp history that is covered in these 36 pages is astounding. The file like look of the fact sheets is awesome and the accompanying art, pretty much a pin up with each fact sheet, makes me not only want to see this line of books, but wants Moonstone to tackle ALL the pulp heroes AND villains in this format, just for informational purposes for us writers!
Five out of Five Tips of Hancock’s Hat-and if you didn’t hear me the first time…wow.
