Pro Se Productions, the publisher responsible for the recently revealed PRO SE SINGLE SHOT SIGNATURE imprint, announces that award winning New Pulp Author Barry Reese will bring his talent to bear on a series in this new line of digital singles.
Sovereign City has many champions but not all of them get the limelight. Reese’s THE DARK GENTLEMAN features one such hero. The Dark Gentleman is a crusader for justice, taking out the small fry criminals so that others can focus on the bigger picture. But for those whose lives are saved by the masked hero, he is just as important as Lazarus Gray or Doc Daye… He is the Dark Gentleman and he’s cleaning up Sovereign City, one petty thug at a time.
“The Dark Gentleman series,” says Reese, “represents a chance for me to do something a bit different within the confines of my pulp adventure universe. He operates on a smaller scale than most of my heroes and the focus will be on mundane (but still exciting!) adventures – no supernatural forces or globe trotting. This is straight-up, in your face pulp.
Barry Reese has been with Pro Se since the early days of the company’s foray into New Pulp and in 2011 brought his seminal New Pulp creation THE ROOK to roost as a part of Pro Se. Since then, Barry has opened his mind and let his vivid imagination pour out into various novels, including more adventures of THE ROOK as well as volumes featuring LAZARUS GRAY and GRAVEDIGGER.
Barry has spent the last decade writing for publishers as diverse as Marvel Comics, West End Games, Pro Se Press and Moonstone Books. Known primarily for pulp adventure works, Barry has also delved into slasher horror (Rabbit Heart) and crime noir (The Damned Thing). His favorite classic pulp heroes are The Avenger, The Shadow, Conan and Seekay.
Reese is also a winner of multiple awards for his Pulp work, including Best Novel, Best Short Story, Best Author, and most recently Best New New Pulp Character for his creation of Gravedigger in the 2014 New Pulp Awards.
THE DARK GENTLEMAN will feature cover art by Artist Jeffrey Hayes. Hayes is also the designer of the Pro Se Single Shots Signatures logo.
