Our Highest Recommendation. By Ed Brubaker. Art by Sean Phillips and Jacob Phillips. An original graphic novel from the bestselling creators–it may look like a western, but the story begins in New York City in 1939! Max Winters, an aging pulp writer, finds himself drawn into a story not unlike the tales he churns out at five cents a word–tales of a Wild West outlaw dispensing justice with a six-gun (secretly based on his own outlaw youth in the real west). But now Max is having his own issues, has been tracked down by a retired Pinkerton detective, and might be able to make one last big score. Image Comics, 2021.

Description

An original graphic novel from the bestselling creators–it may look like a western, but the story begins in New York City in 1939! Max Winters, an aging pulp writer, finds himself drawn into a story not unlike the tales he churns out at five cents a word–tales of a Wild West outlaw dispensing justice with a six-gun (secretly based on his own outlaw youth in the real west). But now Max is having his own issues, has been tracked down by a retired Pinkerton detective, and might be able to make one last big score.

But there is much more to this outstanding story and I refuse to give it away. I really, really enjoyed reading this and am going to go after more of Brubaker’s work. Told in the first person, this is realistic, captivating, and you just don’t know where it’s all going to end up. Remember the Clint Eastwood movie The Unforgiven? it’s one of my favorites of his, and it comes to mind when I was reading this. I had a hard time not tearing up at the dramatic ending of this.

We’ve even got American Nazis (the Bundt, long before we entered the war) and a taste of the cutthroat world of pulp publishing mixed into this surprising drama.

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 on the brink is another must-have hardcover from one of comics’ most acclaimed teams.

They’ve also created Kill or be Killed, My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies, and Criminal.
