http://pulpcrazy.com/podcast/140.mp3

In this week’s episode I discuss, Batman: The Doom That Came To Gotham. It’s an Elseworlds tale set in 1928, featuring a pulp Batman encountering Cthulhu Mythos inspired elements.  This was originally published as a prestige format 3-issue mini series. In the past few years, the individual issues proved pricey on the secondary market due to the popularity of Cthulhu Mythos and Lovecraftian fiction, but DC released a trade paperback collecting the series in late December 2015. It’s now available on Amazon for under $11.00.

Pulp Crazy – The Multiversity: Society of Super-Heroes

http://pulpcrazy.com/podcast/082.mp3

In this weeks episode I will be discussing a recently published comic book that was promoted as having some pulp themes. The title of this particular issue is The Multiversity: The Society of Superheroes: Conquerors from the Counter-World. It was written by Grant Morrison and penciled by Chris Sprouse, and published by DC Comics. This issue is part of what is called the Multiversity Project, it is a limited series made up of different one shot issues, with two bookends. The Multiversity carries on the tradition of Crisis On Infinite Earths, and deals with the Post New 52 DC Multiverse. It also fits into Grant Morrison’s larger body of work within the DC Universe itself. This particular world, Earth-20 is done in a pulp style.
