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.

Tarzan and the Gods of Opar is being serialized over the next 3 months in Dark Horse Presents, beginning this week with Dark Horse Presents #8.

Wold Newton Day 12/13/2014 – The Shadow Midnight in Moscow by Howard Chaykin

http://pulpcrazy.com/podcast/094.mp3

This is a special bonus episode in celebration of Wold Newton Day, December 13th. In celebration of Wold Newton Day 2014, I’ll be discussing The Shadow: Midnight in Moscow written and illustrated by Howard Chaykin from Dynamite Entertainment. This comic book mini series is notable as being the first overt reference to Philip Jose Farmer’s Wold Newton Family concept in comic book format. The series also marks Howard Chaykin’s return to the Shadow since his landmark 1986 mini series at DC which revitalized the character.

Midnight in Moscow begins on January 31, 1949 and the rest of the story takes place in the early days of 1950, where as Chaykin’s 1986 mini series took place in contemporary times. Midnight in Moscow can be placed in the Wold Newton Universe. Midnight in Moscow is a prelude to the 1986 series, so by extension the 1986 series can also be thought of as being in the Wold Newton Universe as well if one wishes.

Pulp Crazy – Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle, Congo Christmas OTR

http://pulpcrazy.com/podcast/093.mp3

This week Pulp Crazy will be getting into the Christmas Spirit with an Old Time Radio episode starring a pulp character. Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle. This particular episode is titled Congo Christmas and it first aired on 12/20/1951.

This Christmas Themed episode takes place before the Christmas holiday, with Tarzan and his companian N’Kima the monkey vising the village of Karmiki, . Besides the local tribe, the village is home to a Christian Mission run by the Reverend Collier. The beliefs of Christianity are at odds with the native religion led by the High Priest of Neomopo the Moon God. Things are further complicated when two younger members of the tribe from different religions fall in love, and wish to marry. Each of their respective religions are resistant to the marriage. During this conflict, the Eye of Neomopo, a brilliant blue sapphire goes missing, further complicating the climate inside the village.

Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan Review

http://pulpcrazy.com/podcast/089.mp3

 

In this weeks episode I will be discussing a movie based on a pulp character. Actually, the most well known pulp character of all. Tarzan. The title of the film is Greystoke, the Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes. It’s quite a mouthful, but I generally hear it referred to as simply Greystoke.

The film was released on March 30, 1984 and is based on the novel Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs. The film was directed by Hugh Hudson, who is best known for directing Chariots of Fire.

Greystoke stars Christopher Lambert as Tarzan, although he is never referred to by this name during the film. He is called John, Johnny, or Lord Greystoke. Andie MacDowell plays Jane Porter, and Ian Holm is Philippe D’Arnot. Sir Ralph Richardson played the Earl of Greystoke, Tarzan’s grandfather.

While the film is not 100% faithful to the original novel, I believe the spirit of Tarzan was captured.
