But will Max be able to do the same when pursued by bank robbers, Nazi spies, and enemies from his past?

One part thriller, one part meditation on a life of violence, PULP is unlike anything award-winning BRUBAKER & PHILLIPS have ever done before. This celebration of pulp fiction set in a world more

    I will say this has one hell of an ending. Brubaker and Phillips are at the top of their game here and this is awesome. It is well written and Phillips knocks it out of the park with the artwork. /This exceeded my expectations and that is really saying something. Read Full Review

    PopCultHQ - Joshua Winchester Jan 26, 2021

    For those who have been fans of the pairing of Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips over the years, 'Pulp' is another in the line of examples as to why these two work well together. Ed's story paired up with Sean's artwork is a powerful thing to stir up imagination. A warning though, if you do pick up this book and the art and colors are not there halfway through the story, do not let that detract from the terrific, engaging and exciting story. There's a lot to unpack in the world of Max Winters and it is worth reading all the way to the end. Read Full Review
