“Barry Reese’s New Pulp heroes have all the zest of the classic heroes of the ’30s with a discreet touch of today’s sensibilities for an added kick. Always a fun, page-turning read.” – Will Meugniot, artist of DNAgents & supervising producer of X:Men: The Animated Series.
In 2003 Reese began work for Marvel Comics on volume five of their Marvel Encyclopedia series. Following this, Reese worked on both the ongoing The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe series and on D6 Space: Fires of Amatsumara Worldbook for West End Games. Amongst the issues of the Handbook that Reese worked on were Marvel Legacy: 1960s, Marvel Legacy: 1970s, Spider-Man 2006, Teams 2006, A-Z volumes 1-7 and Horror 2006. Reese also contributed to the New Avengers: Most Wanted and Marvel Monsters: From the Files of Ulysses Bloodstone books.
Reese then contributed to USER’S Most Wanted, a villains supplement for the Godsend Agenda game belonging to Khepera Publishing. USER’S Most Wanted was published in May 2007.
Since 2006, Reese has primarily written in the pulp adventure genre. He has won numerous awards for his various series featuring heroes like Lazarus Gray, The Gravedigger and The Peregrine. Most notably, he was voted Best Author in the 2011 Pulp Ark Awards – he also won Best Short Story (2012 Pulp Ark Awards), Best Novel (2013 Pulp Ark Awards) and Best New Character (2014 Pulp Ark Awards). A full list of awards and nominations can be found on this site’s Bibliography page.
Reese has contributed to anthologies featuring classic pulp and pulp-inspired heroes like The Avenger, I.V. Frost, The Green Hornet and Johnny Dollar. He served as one of the editors on Doc Savage: The Sinister Shadow, the 2015 novel by Will Murray that paired Doc Savage and the Shadow. In 2017, he joined with Jim Beard on a novel featuring Captain Action – a book that was nominated for Best Novel in the 2018 Pulp Factory Awards.
“Barry Reese is not only an exceptional author who vividly captures the thrill-a-minute essence of pulp fiction in his work from The Peregrine to Gravedigger to Lazarus Gray, but he’s also clearly a fan at heart who loves what he’s doing. That passion seeps into every spine-tingling chapter he writes. Bravo!” – Michael Uslan, executive producer of the Batman films and author of the memoir, The Boy Who Loved Batman.
