PULPED! RETURNS WITH PULP 2.0’s BILL CUNNINGHAM!

From PULPED-THE OFFICIAL NEW PULP PODCAST
PULPED! is back!  But first, a note-
To all Our Fans and Listeners,
My apologies for the irregularity of PULPED! for the last few months and the downright absence of it the last three.   No excuses, just real life and the commitments of being a writer and publisher got in the way and pulled me away from this.  What has pulled me back though is the sincere interest so many of you have expressed in hearing more and the comments I’ve gotten at all the conventions this year I’ve been to about how people are listening and enjoying.  It’s taken some time, but due to adding some much needed help for other things and life settling down in general, you can expect to hear not only me and many guests on PULPED! each week, but I expect my three co-hosts will be making a few appearances as well! Thank You all again for your support and interest and let’s get PULPED!, shall we?
Tommy Hancock
PULPED!

KNIGHT WATCHMAN TAKES THE GRAVEYARD SHIFT

Knight watchman: Graveyard Shift (c) 2012 & TM by Big Bang Comics. Published by Pulp 2.0 Press.

New Pulp Publisher, Pulp 2.0 Press has announced and shared the cover to the upcoming 2013 release of the Knight Watchman: Graveyard Shift collecting the 4-issue 1998 mini-series originally published by Big Bang Comics. Pulp 2.0 Press’ resident Mad Pulp Bastard and publisher, Bill Cunningham calls Graveyard Shift “A love letter to the 90’s and a major reinvention of The Knight Watchman.

About Graveyard Shift:
In the wake of a tragedy, a masked hero forced out of retirement to save the city from itself. When a dead body turns up and all the evidence points to the Knight Watchman, Midway City’s former good guy becomes its most wanted criminal unless he can survive long enough to clear his name.

Knight Watchman: Graveyard Shift is by Chris Ecker, Gary Carlson, and Ben Torres and retails for $8.99 plus shipping and handling.

Coming soon from Pulp 2.0 Press.

TEASING A JUNGLE ADVENTURE

Not Actual Cover

On his Facebook page, Pulp 2.0 publisher Bill Cunningham posted the following tease about an upcoming project.

“I am putting a book series together called JUNGLE GIRL ADVENTURES featuring photos, comic panels, posters and 3 short stories from Bobby Nash, Ian Watson, and Michael May. It’s a celebration of all things jungle girl. It also features a gallery of jungle girl pinup photos from the Donald F. Glut archives. What I have found is that the jungle girl subgenre has a long history in films, tv, comics and pulps — something that has been forgotten in mainstream media.”

JUST ANOTHER DAY ON MONSTER ISLAND

Art: Graham Nolan

As a promotion for the upcoming release of Graham Nolan‘s MONSTER ISLAND, Pulp 2.0 Press is running the comic strip version of the graphic novel on the Pulp 2.0 Facebook page.

The strip will run until August 15th. During that time you will have the opportunity to pre-order the book for $9.99 postage paid!

The comic strip version of MONSTER ISLAND has never been seen before and is one of the many bonus features you’ll find in the new edition. Our 80 page book has over 30 new pages of material including commentary from Graham, an interview, sketches, layouts and a few notes by the Mad Pulp Bastard himself, Bill Cunningham.

Story and Art: Graham Nolan

Later in the year, Pulp 2.0 Press will be following this comic strip promotion up with a brand new strip by Chris Ecker and Steve Skeates featuring Big Bang Comics’ The Knight Watchman.

About Monster Island:

Monster Island is the story of two pilots who crash land and become stranded on a lost island that serves as the holding area for an alien consortium that removes problem monsters from other worlds for a fee. Now our two heroes – Mac, a feisty female with two fists that do her talking for her, and Duke, a macho fighter jock with a soft spot for Mac – must learn not only how to survive in this deadly alien zoo, but escape it before Monster Island is drawn back through time and space to another point in the universe!

Story and Art: Graham Nolan

Monster Island features all of those things you loved about 1950’s classic monster movies – monsters, mysterious islands, aliens, flying saucers, and half-naked alien queens, but in a fresh, new way that piles on the fun with the fantastic! This comic is Graham Nolan’s love letter to 12¢ comic books, Aurora model kits, BUZ SAWYER comic strips, 1950’s monster movies, Ray Harryhausen and FAMOUS MONSTERS magazine. Self-published 15 years ago, Monster Island is one of those books that you can hand anyone of any age and they will immediately “get it.” Those are the kinds of projects we adore here at Pulp 2.0 – and we know you will too!

THE KNIGHT WATCHMAN RETURNS WITH A BIG BANG FROM PULP 2.0 PRESS!

THE KNIGHT WATCHMAN RETURNS WITH A BIG BANG FROM PULP 2.0 PRESS!

Big Bang Comics and Pulp 2.0 Press Announce New Digital-First Comic Strip
Featuring Knight Watchman at C2E2
Veteran Warren and Shazam Award winning writer Steve Skeates on board the
Sunday comic strip-style webcomic with Knight Watchman creator Chris Ecker

At C2E2: Pulp 2.0 Press MPB (Mad Pulp Bastard) Bill Cunningham joined Big Bang co-creator Chris Ecker in announcing a new, color Knight Watchman serialized comic strip story that will feature the storytelling of Shazam Award-winning comic book legend Steve Skeates (The Spectre, Hawk and Dove, Aquaman, Pantha). This new, digital-first weekly comic strip marks the return of not only Skeates, but of the Knight Watchman to eager comic fans.

“Chris has been itching to get back to the drawing board, and continue telling the adventures of the Knight Watchman, Kid Galahad and the rest of the characters who haunt Midway City,” said Cunningham. “While Chris, Gary Carlson and I have had many discussions on taking the Big Bang brand to different media, it was Chris who went out and contacted Steve Skeates and got him on board to do a Sunday “newspaper comic strip” for the web. All the credit belongs to him. I’m just here to make sure it’s realized, and gets into the hands of Big Bang and comic strip fans worldwide.”

“Big Bang Comics has a tradition of working with our veteran comics creators like Marty Nodell, Shelly Moldoff and others. I’m really pleased to have Steve join our ranks and work with him to tell rip-roarin’ adventure stories,” said artist Chris Ecker. “This Sunday newspaper style strip is a new idea for us, but I think it fits in well with the type of stories we want to tell – Golden age stories for kids of all ages. A Sunday strip gives us the chance to reach out to the audience, and let them know what Big Bang and Pulp 2.0 is all about. ”

“I am excited about launching our first digital comic, especially in this strip format which will utilize the “widescreen look” provided by computer and tablet screens, exactly like reading the Sunday Funnies“ said Cunningham. “We’re doing it a bit “old school,” but that’s been part of our tradition from the beginning, bringing the classic “pulp” into tomorrow as quickly and inexpensively as possible so people can enjoy it. Then we’ll collect the color webcomic for print, and add even more value for our readers.”

The weekly comic strip is set to debut in August 2012, to coincide with Pulp 2.0’s release of the first and second volumes of its Big Bang Comics Collection series of books, featuring the classic Knight Watchman comics stories originally published by Image Comics plus bonus features. Artists and writers featured in these stories include: Terry Beatty, Jeff Austin, Jim Brozman, Howard Bender, Randy Buccini, Joe Shannon Denton, Frank Fosco, Paul Frike, Darren Goodhart, John Livesay:, Tony Manginelli: Mike Matthew , Christopher Page, Dan Preece, Ed Quinby, Stuart Sayger, Bill Shelley, Andrew Sheppard, Bob Steve, Frank Squillace, Tim Stiles, Taylor, Ben Torres, John Thompson, Patrick Tuller, Nigel Tully, Shawn Van Briesen, Mike Worley, and Dave Zimmermann.
