Pulp City

Hello everyone!

When I started this blog a few years ago, I mentioned a handful of fancy Indie e-Rags I hoped would seek out little (at least in the US) known comics and creators for their editorials. One site has truly captured the essence of their moniker. That site is Indie Pulp.

Michael Martinez teamed with Bernie Gonzalez, founder of Element X Studios, to create what would almost instantaneously become a very special longterm project. I must admit, I was a bit skeptical at first. The site (linked in the blog title above) is polished to a distinct sheen. It is very easy to mistake it for another run-of-mill 'edgy' mainstream production. Truth be told, Indie Pulp couldn't be any less a fake, if it was printing the comics featured there in a damp basement.

Matthew Brady is the resident site editor and reviewer of all the amazing comics plastered all over IP. He's done a remarkable job... including enough interior art to give his readers a solid idea of what they can expect to see on their LCS shelves. Many indie mainstays have lent their art to help give the site its brilliant look.

If you aren't already, it wouldn't be a bad idea to frequent Indie Pulp. They are doing their part to make sure indie comics don't stay underground.
