Pulp Crazy Episode 100 – French Pulp Fiction with Jean-Marc Lofficier

http://pulpcrazy.com/podcast/100.mp3

In this special 100th episode of Pulp Crazy, I’m joined by Jean-Marc Lofficier of Black Coat Press. Jean-Marc, a writer, editor, and publisher has a vast knowledge of what has come to be known as French Pulp Fiction. Jean-Marc takes us through history and describes the authors, characters, and concepts pioneered in French popular literature. We also discuss the catalog of Black Coat Press, and Jean-Marc discusses some of the titles they have released, and what is coming down the pipeline. All of this, plus French movie serials, cinema, and even some Philip Jose Farmer talk are thrown into the mix.

It was a pleasure to have Jean-Marc on the show, and I’m grateful he agreed to come on and share his knowledge about French Pulp Fiction.

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.
