    What do people think about the latest run of Marvel's Daredevil by Soule & Garney? (Yeah, I know it's a bit too 21st century to be classified as "pulp", but it seems to have some of those darker influences so far.)

    I liked the first two issues.

    With the exception of their Star Wars titles, it's been a while since I read anything Marvel on a consistent basis, unless it was a while after it came out. There a few books from this latest relaunch that I am hoping will change that.

    Yes. I picked up issue #1 and actually just got around to reading it last night. It's my first time to read anything with this character; so I'm a total newcomer in that sense. But I did enjoy this first issue and plan to pick up the second one to see where the story is going.

    I'm not as up on some of the current stuff; I've been out of the market too long. I can speak of great past material.

    Starting with Conan and Warlord. Conan started in Weird Tales and the Marvel Comics stuff, both comics and magazines are first rate. Over at DC, Mike Grell gave us Warlord, which was influenced by Burroughs and Hollywood, with touches of Tolkien and Moorcock here and there.

    Howard Chaykin is one to read in this realm. His first series was Fafhrd and Gray Mouser, based on Frtitz Leiber's stories, on DC's Sword & Sorcery Comic. He followed that up with Ironwolf, on DC's Weird Worlds comic, after their Burroughs license ended. He returned to Ironwolf later, in a graphic novel with Mike Mignola on art. His Cody Starbuck was a reworking of Ironwolf, and continued the pulp/space opera tradition. He did The Scorpion, at Atlas/Seaboard, for 2 issues, which are great pulp stories. When he left them, he reworked the Scorpion into Dominic Fortune, at Marvel. Fortune is definitely better and a lot of fun. Aside from the stories that were reprinted in that trade, with the Max imprint mini and web comics, he produced some color Dominic Fortune for Hulk (aka Rampaging Hulk) Magazine, with Denny O'Neil continuing to write, including a story where he meets a micro-thinly veiled Shadow. Chaykin worked on the Shadow modern revival at DC, and also helped launch a rather pulpy take on Blackhawk (which was always rather pulpy). American Flagg was filled with pulp traditions, as well as some cutting edge sci-fi, for the time. American Century is a nice pulpy blend of things, mixing more the 50s hard-bolied crime style. Midnight Men is more in the traditional mold, with the latest in a line of costumed vigilantes. Chaykin returned to Fafhrd and Gray Mouser in the early 90s, at Epic, with Mike Mignola on art. Chaykin also did an issue of Immortal Iron Fist, focusing on Danny Rand's more pulpy predecessor, in an excellent tale.

    Denny O'Neil and Mike Kaluta did a fine rendition of the Shadow, back in the 70s, and O'Neil and Russ Heath did an excellent Shadow graphic novel at Marvel, which was later reprinted.

    Tarzan had great runs all over, but especially the Joe Kubert DC comics and the John Buscema Marvel ones.

    Tom Strong, as mentioned, is tremendous pulp fun and Greyshirt is an excellent Spirit pastiche.

    Twilight Avenger is also good fun.

    Hellboy is in the pulpy tradition of Lovecraft and other Weird Tales stories.

    You don't get much pulpier than Michael T. Gilbert's Mr. Monster or Dan Brereton's Nocturnals; or for that matter, Brereton Chuck Dixon and Beu Smith's Black Terror mini, from Eclipse.

    Crash Ryan was a nice blend of pulp and movie serial. It was produced as a mini at Epic, then a story later appeared in Dark Horse Presents.

    I consider the Phantom to be Pulp and recommend the collections of the old Gold Key and Charlton runs of the comic, especially the Charlton ones. they had people like Jim Aparo and Don Newton on the book. Newton was especially moody with the art and issue 70 featured an excellent riff on various Bogart mystery and adventure movies, "The Mystery of the Mali Ibex."

    Flash Gordon also falls into pulp, in my definition and he had a decent series at Dynamite and some excellent comics at Gold Key, in the 70s.

    Eclipse did a lot of great pulp stuff, like ESPers, Luger, Ms Tree (in the tradition of Spillane and Chandler), Scout (very much in the men's adventure pulp mode), Aztec Ace, Airboy and related titles (especially the period Skywolf stories). First Comics Jon Sable (from the always excellent Mike Grell) and Whisper were in the modern pulp traditions.

    The Dan Jolly and Tony Harris JSA: The Liberty Files stuff was a nice pulpy take on the heroes. I;d also throw the first year or two of The Invaders, as being more in the pulpy Timely tradition of comics.

    Dean Motter's excellent Terminal City has been mentioned, but his Mister X fit very well, too, as did Electropolis.

    I'd also add Ron Fortier's Boston Bombers, from Caliber, Christopher Moeller's King of the Rocketmen (based on the Republic serial), the Modesty Blaise strips, Master of Kung Fu (especially the Moench and Gulacy stories), Killraven, the Torpedo stories from Jordi Bernet and Sanchez Abuli (and Alex Toth, the Blacksad graphic novels, XIII (the French series, translated by Cinebook)Mike Grell's Starslayer, the Rocketeer, and so many more that I am forgetting.

    Yeah, I knew I was going to forget stuff, especially at Eclipse. How I forgot Prowler, I don't know. While we are at it: Lost Planet, the Merchants of Death magazine anthology, Tim Truman's version of The Spider, and their adaptation of Haggard's She.
