It’s been a bumper year for high-class pulp comics, with Brett Harris’s Adventures in Pulp getting rave reviews and now Steven Hudkins’ excellent The Warden series being collected together into one volume. With a Kickstarter launching to create a printed hardcover we caught up with the master of ‘swamp magic’ to find out more about the meaning of pulp.

Adventure in PulpWebcomic Adventures in Pulp, takes classic pulp stories of the 40s and 50s featuring private eyes and alien invasions and gives them a slick 21st century presentation (but without ever losing their vintage charm!). Published online and now available via ComiXology we caught up with writer Brett Harris, co-creator of this 5 star rated series, to find out what inspired him to get pulpy!
