PULP (Ed Brubaker / Sean Phillips)

Le héros de Pulp, le prochain graphic novel du duo Ed Brubaker et Sean Phillips, est Max Winters, un écrivain de pulps dans le New York des années 30 qui se retrouve plongé dans le genre d’histoires qu’il écrit à la chaîne pour cinq cents le mot…des histoires de pistoleros dans l’Ouest Sauvage rendant la justice avec leurs six-coups. Mais Max sera-t-il capable de faire la même chose alors qu’il est poursuivi par des braqueurs de banques, des espions nazis et des ennemis de son passé ?

Ed Brubaker :

« When Sean and I decided to do something completely new for our next original graphic novel, he planted the idea of a Western in my head… And I found myself drawn to the era where that genre first hit big – the pulp magazines and the Great Depression. I thought about all these writers telling fictionalized versions of the vanishing days of the Wild West, as their own world was going through one of its darkest hours… And suddenly I realized I had the makings of a really great pulp story, but one set in the real world. A story that I really wanted to tell. »

Description: Max Winters, a pulp writer in 1930s New York, finds himself drawn into a story not unlike the tales he churns out at 5 cents a word - tales of a wild west outlaw dispensing justice with a six-gun. But will Max be able to do the same, when pursued by bank robbers, Nazi spies, and enemies from his past? One part thriller, one part meditation on a life of violence, Pulp is unlike anything the award-winning team of Brubaker and Phillips have ever done. A celebration of pulp fiction, set in a world on the brink. And another must-have hardback from one of comics most-acclaimed teams.
