Pulp Crazy – Weird Detective: The Stars Are Wrong

http://pulpcrazy.com/podcast/141.mp3

 

In this week’s episode I’m going to be discussing a comic book that ties in with H. P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos. Weird Detective from Dark Horse comics.

I think it’s a comic that kind of fell below everyone’s radar last year and I’m going to be discussing it in depth during this episode. There will be spoilers, but this is more of a setup than a self-contained story, so don’t be afraid to keep listening. This is more like a #0 or #1 issue.

Weird Detective ran in Dark Horse Presents, Dark Horse’s staple comics anthology title. Weird Detective is branded as a Lovecraftian crime comic. The tag-line is, “It takes a monster to catch a monster.” It’s written by Fred Van Lente and illustrated by Guiu Vilanova. Josan Gonzalez is the colorist and Nate Piekos of BLAMBOT is the letterer. Francesco Francavilla provided art for one of the covers to Dark Horse Presents #8 featuring Sebastian Greene, the main character.

The third part concludes by announcing Weird Detective will return in a new #1 issue.

Tarzan and the Gods of Opar Part Three by Mike Grell

http://pulpcrazy.com/podcast/114.mp3

In this weeks episode I will be discussing Tarzan and the Gods of Opar Part Three written and illustrated by Mike Grell. This is the third and final installment of Tarzan and the Gods of Opar and it appeared a few weeks back in Dark Horse Presents #10. Once again Grell delivers eight wonderful pages of Tarzan. I really wish Dark Horse would make Tarzan a fixture in the pages of Dark Horse Presents, and have Grell illustrate eight pages a month. This was a great story, and Dark Horse really needs to make better use of the Tarzan property in my opinion.

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.
