Pulp Thursday!

Just in time for the up coming movie, Dark Horse has the Indiana Jones collection

Jake Sampson: Monster Hunter is a great way to pass the time at work without surfing the net and getting in trouble *cough,cough*

Brian C. gave me a heads up on a new pulp RPG called Pulp Adventure. It's in it's second edition so its not new, just new to me. Gotta spread the word, besides the author is a Jeff and we Jeff's sticks together.

Rocketship Empires
, gets my vote for the most original pulp game setting so far this year.

"Rocket into two fisted, pulp space opera with Rocketship Empires 1936! This volume is the core campaign source book. It is suitable for play in any table top RPG game system."

at $8.99 the core book is very affordable. I will have to check it out.

Few things say Pulp as well as clunky robots shooting laser rays out of their eyes. And whats better than a free game of robot combat, featuring clunky robots shooting laser rays out of their eyes? I havent played it yet. But I will. Get it while it's free guys.

When I was a tyke I remember my grandfather having a huge stack of Classics illustrated comics. When I couldn't get my hands on a Conan or Avengers comic they were the next in line. And by damn if I didn't learn a thing or two about Julius Caesar and Faust.

Classical Comics seems to be a new effort and I applaud it whole heartedly. They also have Much Ado About Nothing, The Tempest, and Richard III available as free downloads. It's worth a click.

Here's another new effort. Some of the guys over at the Exile Games Message boards are starting up a magazine to support the Ubiquity line of games the first of which is the ultra cool Hollow Earth Expeditions. The new mag is aclled Mythic Eras- cool name. cool premise. I wish them luck. Put me down for an issue. They have a writing contest going on right now so head on over there and have a look.
*psst* you guys need a logo.

Zorro from Dynamite Entertainment
Their Lone Ranger title is the selling very nicely. Now they are adding a little swashbuckling action into the mix with Zorro. I called my comic shop, it's in my saver. I'll be checking it out this weekend!

And that is your Pulp Thursday report!
