The glory days of pulp magazines are long ago and far away. The world moved on to comic books, the graphic novel, and serialized movie blockbusters, among many others. Oh, sure, we still think of them if we take a trip into film noir or space opera. The pulps remain an important evolutionary step in entertainment, but they are mostly extinct.
Should they remain extinct?
Rise! Rise pulp magazines! Return to the world to astonish and amaze readers of all ages!
"The Purple Skull" is an attempt to write pulp fiction in modern times. This first issue, appropriately dubbed "The Purple Skull No. 1," takes a look what to do when the world is too far gone to be saved, at sin and the meaning of sin, and how to help your neighbors when the chips are down. Boring? The first story has a mad scientist, the second has a devil or two, and the third is a masked superhero saving a small town from the Depression. Boring? I should hope not.
Please enjoy this first issue of one guy's attempt to resurrect something, even at a tiny level, and provide a little bit of enjoyment to a few readers.
Thank you. And good night.
