RARA-AVIS: Pulp Fantastic

From: CraigET@aol.com

I recently finished reading Pulp Fantastic, a 3 issue comic book mini-series loosely based on The Maltese Falcon but with a science fiction twist. Co-written by Howard Chaykin (who has worked the sci fi HB vein before--Times Squared, American Flagg), this one has it all: sex, androids, big guns, femmes fatales, corrupt cops, and a PI named Vector Pope who is trying to sort it all out. Not nearly as pure HB as Frank Miller's Sin City stories, but still entertaining. Pulp Fantastic is published by DC as part of their Vertigo line.
