|Pulp and Adventure Heroes of the Pre-war Years|
|This extraordinary site will introduce you in the manner of an encyclopedia to heroes and heroic figures published from, roughly, 1902 to 1939. It is not restricted only to the pulps, either, although the many characters from that medium will constitute the majority of the entries on this site. It includes characters from "respectable" fiction and comic strips and radio shows and children's fiction as well as pulps and adventure fiction. Sections include brief historical information, pictures, a bibliography and links to other pulp sources.|
|PULP HEROES: STARS OF THE PULP ERA|
|These sites very creatively include information and images about the great pulp heroes of the past, heroes who date from the Pulp era in the 1930's, plus those characters who came later that were inspired by them.|
|Pulp fiction magazines were the main source of everyday entertainment for the masses during the first half of the 20th Century. These magazines delivered action and heroes that were some of the most creative in literary history. Pulp heroes and their authors have influenced every medium including comics, movies, and television.|
|Long before TV, when movies were silent and radio was rarely heard, the pulp magazines burst onto the scene. The cheaply produced magazines offered an eager populace with a pastime that carried them to far–away places on adventures far beyond their everyday lives. Those stories live on in the brittle pages of the aging pulp magazines. Collected on these virtual pages of ThePulp.Net are articles and information about the pulps and scores of links to sites with even more details.|
|Mr. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
Bond and Pulps by David Morefield
|These characters were the stars of the "pulps," and in a way they were the spiritual forefathers of James Bond. Though separated from the works of Ian Fleming by time, cultures and philosophy, even a casual examination of the pulps reveals some remarkable parallels to the Bond mythos.|
