The Crimson Clown

The Shadow Knows
~~ Click on the image for biggie ~~

Hello Pulp Friends,

as promised, here's the character chosen among all the entries (thanky ou so much to all who entered :).
This was a tough decision as all characters are so cool, but I went with this one for two reasons:
1) it's a character cretaed by Jonston McCulley, a creator I am quite familiar with ;)
2) I wanted to challange myself with making a guy named CRIMSON CLOWN and actually dressed as a clown to look cool. You tell me if I succeded to it or not ;)

Thanks to @Comicbookdaily, I present you the Crimson Clown! :)

And thanks to everyone for making this first edition of Pulp Fest Week so fun! Definitely planning to do it again sometime, and definitely planning to make the request thing a regular feature (time permitting).

Chad Carter said...

Absolutely cool. And you can take that to the bank because I hate f*cking clowns!

Chuck Wells said...

I'm familiar with The Crimson Clown since he was a part of Ned Pines many old publishing endeavors and I've always loved that guys output in the comic book world too.

I would say you achieved your goal quite handily.
