Catch “Children of the Pulps” on Instagram

Dec 12, 2018 by

PulpFest has started a series on Instagram called “Children of the Pulps.” We’re discussing the profound effect of the rough-paper magazines on the evolution of popular culture across the globe.

The creators of the pulps, as well as their fiction and art have reverberated through a wide variety of mediums. Pulps have influenced comic books, movies, paperbacks and genre fiction, television, men’s adventure magazines, radio drama, and even video, anime, and role-playing games.

Today, we feature a short historical review of continuing characters. Tomorrow . . . The Shadow knows!

You should too! Follow PulpFest on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/pulpfest/.

(“Odysseus in the Cave of Polyphemus” was painted by Jacob Jordaens, c. 1635.

We also hope you join PulpFest in August 2019 for “Children of the Pulps and Other Stories.” We plan to explore the many ways pulp fiction and pulp art have influenced writers, artists, film directors, software developers, game designers, and other pop culture creators over the decades.
