It’s a good time to be a fan of the pulp genre. There has been an explosion in the last few years covering many of the different styles that make it what it is. In my eyes there are basically two camps it can be boiled down to. The costumed vigilantes that grew out of The Shadow or the more Indiana Jones type adventurers that follow in the Doc Savage tradition. While Dynamite Entertainment is publishing endless streams of these golden age pulp characters (mainly of masked vigilante variety), Image Comics is putting out two very solid books which follow more of the traditional globetrotting fortune hunters. The first is Five Ghosts which I honestly can’t say enough about and the other is the reason you’re here, The Mercenary Sea.
