Pulp Writer Extraordinaire

Gavyn_001Welcome back, my friends!

I’m currently reading Strange Adventures by Jim Starlin and Mentats of Dune by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson. I always enjoy Mr. Starlin’s cosmic stories and this one features strong artwork and some of my favorite characters — Captain Comet, Adam Strange & the Prince Gavyn Starman. Good stuff! The Dune book… I adore the original Frank Herbert stories and have had mixed feelings about these expanded universe novels. This one is pretty decent so far.

Once I’m done with Dune, I’ll be reading The Bishop of Port Victoria by D. Alan Lewis. It’s a New Pulp novel featuring a masked hero, which is right in my wheelhouse. Looking forward to it.

Planning to do a little bit of writing on the crossover novel today — probably won’t have time to get a lot added to it but it’s all going to add up in the end. Today’s chapter features Gravedigger, Cedric Hendry and The Dark Gentleman. Oh, and a dangerous gent named Mr. Death. With a name like that, he’s probably not going to ask them out to tea, eh?

I also need to find some time to work on the first Dark Gentleman story that will kick off the eBook series….

Our art today features Starman, one of the characters that I mentioned appears in Strange Adventures. This particular image is courtesy of Ivan Reis. I’ve always been a fan of the Prince Gavyn Starman and he might show up in one of my Characters I Love posts at some point.

Take care, folks. See you tomorrow!
