Pulp Fiction

During the depression years and the uncertain times heading into World War II, America turned to fictional heroes for entertainment. The pulps provided a number heroes that each lasted over a decade and into the hunderds of issues.

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.
