Growing up as a child of the late 80’s/early 90’s my household was living in a George Lucas haze. My older brother and I couldn’t get enough Star Wars and Indiana Jones. In my mind heroes didn’t come much greater than Henry Jones Jr.
So when I started to think about what kind of pulp sensibility infiltrated my brain at such a young age it only made sense that I linked it to Indiana Jones. That movie series intentionally had all the hallmarks of what pulp is and what it does. I just left it at that for a long time believing that to be the only catalyst for my love of the genre. It wasn’t until the other day though that that all that changed.
Come back in time with me to 1990, will you?
