Terry Beatty, artist of the Phantom Sunday newspaper strips is offering some of his Phantom artwork for sale in order to raise the funds to replace the computer he uses to digitally pencil, letter and color the strip.

From Terry’s blog:
The process here is that I print the pencils (done in Manga Studio) in blue (a 50% cyan usually), along with the lettering and borders in black, on 11 x 17 bristol board, and then ink the art traditionally by hand with brush and pen. Some of the blue “pencil” lines can show through — but it’s usually rather subtle and doesn’t detract from the art at all.

This is then scanned for color, which is done in Photoshop. In some cases, repeat panels are digital printouts as well — and the logo panel is always printed — the modern equivalent of a “paste-up” — but without the eventual rubber cement stains or faded photostat! Sound effects lettering — and once in a while, some of the more mechanical background lines, are digital as well.

As an incentive to buy now, I’m going to include with each Phantom page purchased, a randomly chosen page of original artwork from my files of comic book pages inked by me. I’ll also toss in a few surprise extras just to sweeten the deal. Prices include shipping in the US — overseas shipping will have to be calculated and added in, as that can add up a little too much. I’m also dropping some of the prices a little from the prices I’ve had on these at comic book shows.

Art here is all from Sunday strips that have seen print, starting with the first page from the current Power House gang story (sorry, all but one “Shadows of Rune Noble” pages are gone — and I’m keeping that one). I do have pages that have not seen print yet — but can’t show them publicly, for the obvious reason.

Ray Bradbury U.S. Stamp Campaign

All Pulp has been informed of a petition to commemorate the life of noted author, Ray Bradbury (who passed away on June 5, 2012) on a stamp from the United States Postal Service.

In a career spanning more than seventy years, Ray Bradbury has inspired generations of readers to dream, think, and create.

A prolific author of hundreds of short stories and close to fifty books, as well as numerous poems, essays, operas, plays, teleplays, and screenplays, Bradbury was one of the most celebrated writers of our time.

His groundbreaking works include Fahrenheit 451, The Martian Chronicles, The Illustrated Man, Dandelion Wine, and Something Wicked This Way Comes. He wrote the screen play for John Huston’s classic film adaptation of Moby Dick, and was nominated for an Academy Award.

He adapted sixty-five of his stories for television’s The Ray Bradbury Theater, and won an Emmy for his teleplay of The Halloween Tree.

Steel City Noir returns to Trip City with an all-new Bite-Sized Pulp Story called “Stockholm Syndrome” by writer Vito Delsante with cover art by Julian Lopez.

David recognized him right away. Tall, broad shoulders on a back that seemed to be built like a billboard. Wisps of blonde hair peeked out from under the ski cap, but his blue, steely eyes absolutely penetrated the wool covering. Manicured fingernails on a hand that held a pistol straight and narrow. Muscles that bulged in all the right places. He knew who his captor was, and despite the fact that he was holding a gun to his face, he had to say his name. “Carl?” he asked and cocked his head. The gunman trained his gun on the bank teller.

This month’s installment of STEEL CITY NOIR called “Lucky Eddie” is live at http://welcometotripcity.com/2012/05/steel-city-noir-lucky-eddie.

Lucky Eddie is written by Vito Delsante with Illustration by Julian Lopez.

“Lucky Eddie is a story about gambling, something which I’m not very fond of, but I do pretty often,” says Delsante about his latest Steel City Noir tale. “It’s also a story about luck and fate, and how much stock we tend to put in those two things, especially in a casino.”

You can read the Lucky Eddie Primer here and the full story here.


New Pulp Author Win Scott Eckert shared the following press release with All Pulp. You can read more about it here.

The Titan Books edition of The Other Log of Phileas Fogg by Philip Jose Farmer came out a few days ago, and here’s what people are saying:

Christopher Paul Carey: “I must say, WOW! This is the classiest production of the book that I’ve seen. I was thinking it would be nice, but it exceeds my expectations: a matte finish and raised text on the cover, high-quality paper stock, classy design work on both the interior and exterior, not to mention the new afterword and timeline by Win. I give this edition an A+.”

Art Sippo: “I just read the essay done by Win in The Other Log of Phileas Fogg Titan reprint. A terrific piece of work that actually links Philip Jose Farmer himself to the Wold Newton Universe and to many of the other characters in his stories. The detailed chronology is an extra added bonus. Great job, Win!”

The new edition also has the illustrations by Rick J. Bryant originally included in the early 1980s Tor edition, and is available in trade paperback and eBook.
