Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips are firing with both barrels this summer with the release of upcoming the noir western Pulp in July and the collected edition of their critically acclaimed Criminal arc Cruel Summer in August, both from Image Comics
“A darkly mysterious 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. It follows Max Winters, a pulp writer in 1930s New York, who 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? Find out in this must-have thriller from one of comics’ most acclaimed creative teams, perfect for fans of The Fade Out and Criminal.”
The collected Cruel Summer collects the arc of the same name from last years Criminal series and follows Teeg Lawless as he plans the heist of a lifetime and shows how it all goes wrong at the hands of someone he least expects, his son Ricky.
