(Perhaps you’ll find an issue of Fawcett’s BATTLE STORIES at this year’s PulpFest. Perhaps it will be the July 1930 issue, featuring cover art by George Rozen.  Debuting with its September 1927 number, BATTLE STORIES was one of the leaders in its fiction category. It debuted about a year after Dell’s WAR STORIES, the first of the so-called “war pulps.”

We’ll be honoring the 100th anniversary of the armistice that ended the First World War. The convention will focus on the war pulps of the early twentieth century and the depiction of war in popular culture. We’ll also be celebrating the centennial of the birth of Grand Master of Science Fiction Philip José Farmer. Our guest of honor will be award-winning author Joe Lansdale.

Start planning now to attend PulpFest and its celebration of mystery, adventure, science fiction, and more. Be sure to join PulpFest 2018 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry this summer. We’ll be there July 26 – 29, just outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at the “pop culture center of the universe.”

3 Rivers Comicon: Putting Comics Back in Conventions

Apr 18, 2018 by

During the third weekend of May, a couple of Pittsburgh nerds are hoping to make comic con all about comics again. 3 Rivers Comicon — which runs May 19 – 20 in West Mifflin, Pennsylvania — is the latest addition to the many conventions in the Pittsburgh area.

New Dimension Comics owner Todd McDevitt and general manager Jon Engel launched 3 Rivers Comicon in 2016 after hearing complaints from customers about the increasing cost of conventions and how the shift to an array of pop culture had left comics in the shadows. “I felt like we were almost being challenged. No one said it, but we made it our mission to do it,” McDevitt said. “This is going to be a comic convention. If you want something else, go somewhere else.”

McDevitt and Engel both have years of experience under their utility belts, attending and also working at comic conventions. From that involvement, as well as feedback from customers, they have the knowledge for what will work at their own event.

One major goal is to make 3 Rivers Comicon affordable. Admission is $10 per day or $16 for a weekend pass. Tickets are available through the convention’s website or at any of the six New Dimension Comics locations. They will also be available at the door. Guests include SPIDER-MAN and THOR artist Ron Frenz; fantasy, pin-up, and comic artist Joe Jusko; NIGHTWING and DAREDEVIL artist Scott McDaniel; SPIDER-GIRL and SENSATIONAL SHE-HULK artist Patrick Ollife; writer and artist Tim Truman, known for his work on GRIMJACK, CONAN, HAWKWORLD, JONAH HEX, and other titles; and many others. Weekend events include panels, gaming, photo opportunities and costume contests for kids and adults. Sunday is Family Day at 3 Rivers Comicon, with kid-focused programming all day. There is also the very popular beer party on Saturday evening.

Tickets to the convention’s beer party are $70 and include early admission to both days of the convention, a free graphic novel, entry to the beer release party, catered food and three free bottles of beer, one from each year! “The beer party was the aspect we sold the most of last year,” McDevitt said. “We had people who didn’t care for comics and came for the beer, and people who didn’t care about beer, but came for the comics.”

3 Rivers Comicon has commissioned a custom beer by Helltown Brewing featuring original bottle label art by Joe Jusko. Witchblade Barrel Aged Russian Imperial Stout will be brewed with coffee added this year. This beer will only be made exclusively for 3 Rivers Comicon and New Dimension Comics.

Let’s hope that Todd and Jon save a few bottles of this year’s special brewed craft beer to help us celebrate PulpFest 2018 from July 26 through July 29 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry, just north of Pennsylvania’s “Steel City.” Although PulpFest will not have its own beer, the convention will still have a lot of great programming. Add to that a dealers’ room featuring tens of thousands of pulp magazines, vintage paperbacks, digests, men’s adventure and true crime magazines, original art, first edition hardcovers, genre fiction, series books, reference books, dime novels and story papers, Big Little Books, B-Movies, serials and related paper collectibles, old-time radio shows, and Golden and Silver Age comic books, as well as newspaper adventure strips. We’ll also have a con suite featuring some great beer and snacks. So what are you waiting for? Start making your plans to join us at the “pop culture center of the universe” for PulpFest 2018.

California Here I Come: The LA Vintage Paperback Collectors Show

Feb 12, 2018 by

Although PulpFest 2018 is about five months off, do not despair. There are other collectors conventions fast approaching. For instance, on Sunday, March 18, the annual Los Angeles Vintage Paperback Collectors Show will take place at the Glendale Civic Auditorium at 1401 North Verdugo Road in Glendale, California from 9 AM to 4 PM. It’s the best bargain in town, featuring an admission price of five bucks!

Now in its 39th year, this convention was started by Tom Lesser, who invited dealers, fellow collectors and paperback enthusiasts to his home in Chatworth, California in 1980. Since then, it has grown to be the world’s largest vintage paperback gathering. This year’s show will feature more than 80 dealer tables with tens of thousands of vintage paperbacks for sale, from inexpensive filler copies to the most elusive and rare collectibles in the hobby. In addition to collectible paperbacks, you’ll also find pulp magazines, original illustration art, hardbound science fiction and mystery books, and more. There is no telling what might show up! Even with a crowd of collectors around, it’s possible to be the first person to discover a hidden gem during the event. Each year there are great finds reported by folks who attend the show. This year, you could be the person telling the story.

Over the years, an important attraction of the show has been its exciting roster of guest authors and artists. It has included such notables as Robert Bloch (18 years); A. E. Van Vogt , Ray Bradbury, Poul Anderson, and Fredrik Pohl (all for over 10 years); and the show’s champ, William F. Nolan (with over 32 years of appearances). This year the show will feature nearly sixty guests who will be available to meet the attendees and sign their works for free! Click here for a schedule of this year’s guest writers and artists.

You’ll find more information on this great collectors gathering at the convention’s website or by calling Tom Lesser at 818-855-1786. And while you’re at the show, be sure to pick up a PulpFest 2018 post card to learn more about “Summer’s Great Pulp Con,” taking place from Thursday evening, July 26 and running through Sunday afternoon, July 29. It will take place just outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry in Mars, PA. Joe Lansdale — the author of over forty novels and numerous short stories — will be the convention’s guest of honor.

Start making your plans now to join us at the “pop culture center of the universe” for PulpFest 2018.

(The Los Angeles Vintage Paperback Collectors Show & Sale’s characteristic poster images were originally designed by the late Glenn Souza, starting in the early 1990s and continued by him through 2007, when he handed on his legacy to Tony Gleeson. Pictured here is the convention’s 2018 poster, featuring the cover artwork from the March 1952 issue of PLANET STORIES, painted by Allen Anderson.)

Returning to Sunny Florida: Pulp AdventureCon

Jan 29, 2018 by

Pulp AdventureCon, FloridaTired of all of this cold weather? Why not head to sunny Fort Lauderdale, Florida, for the weekend?

If you’re into pulp magazines, golden-age comics, original art, men’s adventure magazines, vintage paperbacks, and movie memorabilia, then you should make the trip to join the activities at Pulp AdventureCon on Saturday, Feb. 24, 2018.

The annual South Florida convention, sponsored by Bold Venture Press, is a one-day event and runs from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., at the Universal Palms Hotel, at 4900 Powerline Road. It’s the sister of the long-running Pulp AdventureCon that’s been held in Bordentown, NJ, each November.

Golden-age comics artist Allen Bellman is the Guest of Honor. He started working for Timely Comics (the predecessor to Marvel Comics) in 1942, and was soon inking backgrounds for Syd Shores on CAPTAIN AMERICA, and illustrating the original Human Torch, The Patriot, and other comic-book heroes. He also contributed illustrations to several pulps published by Martin Goodman, who also was behind Timely Comics.

He stayed in the comic-book industry into the 1950s, last working for Lev Gleason Publications.

Bellman will have on hand copies of his recent memoir of working in the golden-age comic industry, TIMELY CONFIDENTIAL: WHEN THE GOLDEN AGE OF COMICS WAS YOUNG, which was published by Bold Venture Press, the sponsor of Pulp AdventureCon.

The con is less than a month away. Not only are tickets available for attending, but you can probably still reserve a table if you’re interested in hawking your pulps or pop-culture-related material. Contact the organizers, Bold Venture Press’ Rich Harvey or Audrey Parente, at
