Tale of High Adventure Preview

As we finish up the final layouts for the 1st issue of our pulp fantasy adventure magazine Tales of High Adventure we though we'd post a few preview pages to whet your appetite. Our goal was to mimic the old fashion pulp rags of the 30's and 40's as much as possible in terms of the look and feel of the publication, whether it be prose or graphic stories. And all in a nice digest format too!

The contents of the magazine how it is set now.

And if you haven't seen it yet, the fantastic cover by Clay Lewis!

The book should be sent off to the printer early next week and if all goes well should be available a couple of weeks after that, just in time for the gift giving season (hint, hint!).

    Virtual Pulp would look like this if I knew some artists. Maybe some day.

  2. Thanks Matt!

    Hank, we were planning on just print but I may consider an ebook as well. We'll see how things go after the first issue.

  3. I was surprised to see that it's going to have comics. The cover and what you've said about it imply that it would be all prose. So in marketing terms you might want to look at that.

  5. @anarchist - I've always promoted it as having prose and comics, though there are more prose pages than comic pages (15 comic pages out of the 55 total pages). I will clarify that a bit more though going forward.
