Comic Books

From syndicated strips, to webcomics, to graphic novels.

Pulp comics galore!

Pulp comics galore!

If yesterday’s post on the pulpy goodness of the Thrilling Tales of the Downright Unusual was not enough for you, good news!

Today’s offering of pulp fiction: Comic Book Plus!

What is Comic Book Plus, you ask?

The site is an archive of Golden Age comics, from such publishers as Ace Comics, Charlton Comics and more.

There is no prerequisites to browsing the comics through the site, but if you want to download these old school comics, you’ll have to register for a (free) account.

There’s more to the site than “just” free Golden & Silver Age comics, though! If you take the time to look around a bit, you might even find “Dime Novels, Penny Dreadfuls, Story Papers and Pulp Magazines

The site itself only features Public Domain works of fiction – that is to say that every comic, penny dreadful or other type of media available is legal to consume. It is absolutely possible to read these comics on the site, but I have made an account on the site so that I can download these beauties and take with me on my tablet!

I first stumbled over the PULP-O-MIZER a few days back while browsing reddit.

The PULP-O-MIZER is a great tool that lets you create your own pulp-style comic book cover, with a range of different preset images, fonts and other neat stuff. It is part of the “Derange-o-Lab” featured on the Thrilling Tales of the Downright Unusual site.

The first post I found about it on reddit was a 50’s version of a cover to the video game “Dead Space”. Since the post in question, several other redditors have tried their hand at making 50’s pulp versions of video game covers.

I really dig the pulp style of comic books, and apart from letting you create your own pulp comic book cover for free, the website also has completely free interactive stories, featuring even more pulpy goodness!

The “Thrilling Tales of the Downright Unusual” site is run by Bradley W. Schenck, and if you like pulp fiction (no pun intended), it seems like Bradley’s website is worth checking out!

I know I’ll be checking the Thrilling Tales of the Downright Unusual myself!
