Pulp Heroes

Welcome Dreammakers, to COSMO'S PULP HEROES CAFE... where all dreams are possible and where Heroes that were, always will be. Sit back now in a soft lounge chair, with your favorite merlot or cappuccino and a favorite friend, and drift with the fog, filling your imagination with the dreams that are and may be. We Pulp Book Writers and Filmmakers are creators of worlds, dreammakers and sculptors of the imaginary, carving characters and worlds out of thought, and bringing forth through the magic of illusion ...that which might be, and for 300 pages of precious time...is ... if but for a moment.




Pulp and Adventure Heroes of the Pre-war Years
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.

Vintage Library
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.


Bond and the Pulps
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.
