MPC Week: "Sin City"
Hello Pulp Friends!
It has been already 3 weeks that the Archive.org has removed the OTR episodes of the Shadow from their website. I am not sure what is the reason (anyone?) but while I think of other OTR shows to use in here, let's have a little gallery of modern Pulp Comics that I read and I think you should too (if you like good pulp).
For all this week (also to make up from my missing Sunday last week, when I was attending Dragon*Con and enjoying the company of legend Bernie Wrightson), every day I will be introducing a comicbook title that has deep roots in the Pulp genre. Some might be already well known to you all (like today's ;)), some other might be less known (like it already happened with Blacksad), but what it counts, at the end of the day, is that you enjoy the post and maybe know something new about these titles.
And feel free to add your comments and feedback on the title spotlighted.
Let's start with Sin City by Frank Miller. Well... if you know nothing about it, then you haven't been around a lot in the last 20years ;)
Most of the books were available again thanks to the recent movie. A new movie is in production, I heard, so expect another wave of reprints of our fav Sin City and all its beautiful people :)
