Marvel goes Pulp!

Now I’m a huge fan for anything pulp (yes even the Doc Savage film with Ron Ely but I draw the line at Allan Quatermain and the lost city of shit…sorry gold) so this latest news from Marvel sounds right up my street.

According to the blurb early next year Marvel will be releasing three limited stories set in the pulp era of the 30’s.

“No doubt, DAREDEVIL has always tipped its hat to the noir tradition and its aesthetic,” the editor acknowledges. “With this series, writer Alexander Irvine and artist Tomm Coker push it even further.”

According to Executive Editor Axel Alonso. I think that’s a pretty fair statement but I have to say looking at some of the teaser images the one I’m most looking forward to is the XMEN NOIR title.

A close second is Spiderman who, I have to be honest, I’ve never been a big fan of but here he looks awesome when given the pulp treatment.

Not sure how well this is going to play out but it’s a cool premise and definately one that I’ll be spending some cash on.
