Pulp Crazy – Tarzan and the Gods of Opar Part Two by Mike Grell

http://pulpcrazy.com/podcast/110.mp3

In this weeks episode I’m going to be discussing Tarzan and the Gods of Opar Part Two written and illustrated by Mike Grell. It was published a few weeks back in Dark Horse Presents #9.

Part Two  picks up right where Part One left off, with Tarzan rescuing a brunette woman of Opar from a leopard. It turns out this woman isn’t La, but a young priestess named Oona.

She fills Tarzan in on what’s been happening in Opar since the arrival of Sir Richard Kincaid and Wilson via their hot air balloon. The story progresses from there.

Pulp Crazy – The New York Review of Bird by Harlan Ellison

http://pulpcrazy.com/podcast/109.mp3

In this weeks episode I’m going to be discussing “The New York Review of Bird” by Harlan Ellison. It first appeared in Weird Heroes Volume 2, published in 1975 by Pyramid Books and produced by Byron Preiss Visual Publications Inc. “The New York Review of Bird” is currently in print in the Harlan Ellison collection titled, Strange Wine. Strange Wine is available in both print and eBook. See below for links.

I read The New York Review of Bird in Weird Heroes Volume 2. I purchased my copy at PulpFest last summer and was immediately intrigued by this story after seeing the Neal Adams interior artwork and the connections to Philip Jose Farmer’s Wold Newton Family. I went ahead and purchased the digital edition of Strange Wine, so I could compare it to the Weird Heroes version.

Pulp Crazy – Savage Sword of Criminal

 

http://pulpcrazy.com/podcast/108.mp3

In this weeks episode I’m going to be discussing a comic book that came out last month. It’s one of the coolest comics I’ve ever read. Criminal: The Special Edition, The Savage Sword of Criminal. This is a magazine sized comic that was written by Ed Brubaker and illustrated by Sean Phillips, the co-creators of Criminal. It was colored by Elizabeth Breitweiser.

I’m going to be discussing the magazine sized variant for the most part, but there was a regular sized edition put out without all of the design elements. Later in this episode I’m going to include a video and do a side by side comparison of the two. I’ll also put Savage Sword of Criminal next to some Savage Sword of Conan magazines for comparison as well.

I’m going to try and explain this one-shot as best as I can, and hope everyone stays with me, but I think the video will ultimately do a better job visually than I can do via audio.
