Airship 27 and Redbud Studios have just released All-Star Pulp Comics, a collection of seven stories featuring characters new and old in the classic pulp tradition! Included in this collection is a Domino Lady story written by me and illustrated by Rock Baker and Jeff Austin.
This whole project began a few years ago, actually. I had attempted to get together a number of people to do short stories featuring public domain pulp characters. Unfortunately, only two of the stories were actually completed.
About a year ago, I read an interview with Ron Fortier of Airship 27 where he said that Airship 27 did want to do some more comic stuff with pulp characters. I contacted him right away and sent him those two stories, asking if he could take a look at them and if he’d like to use them. Sure enough, Ron loved the two tales and asked if I had anything else. I did, in fact — a Domino Lady story I wrote but couldn’t find an artist for. He asked me to send it over and he liked the script and graciously assembled an art team for the project. Ron also filled out the book by gathering a number of other stories from noted creators in the pulp field and now it’s finally complete and available for sale!
What follows is the official press release:
