The Encyclopedia of Fantastic Pulp Heroes

ByJess Nevins

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
1902 to 1945 were years in which global popular culture exploded. Thanks to new distribution methods, new publishers, and new formats, the number of series characters appearing in countries around the world skyrocketed during these decades, growing from a few dozen to many thousands. The genres of the fantastic–science fiction, fantasy, dark fantasy, and horror–were among the most popular genres to appear during these decades. The Encyclopedia of Fantastic Pulp Heroes is the first collection of series characters from these genres. Drawing upon pulps, magazines, novels, movies, radio shows, comic strips, and other media and formats, the Encyclopedia features the broadest range of characters from the fantastic genres imaginable. The Encyclopedia has over 1150 character entries from over two dozen countries, listing the character’s creator(s), where and when the character appeared, and a thorough description of the character and his or her milieu, allies, and enemies.
