Sneak Peek: 2022 Vintage Pulp Detectives & Vintage Pulp Horror

Sneak Peek: 2022 Vintage Pulp Detectives & Vintage Pulp Horror

Way back in the days before streaming and smartphones, many people found their entertainment between the pages of pulp magazines. The term “pulp,” while suggesting a feeling of low quality, actually refers to the inexpensive wood pulp paper on which these publications were printed, making them cheap, accessible forms of escapism. The pulps had their heyday in the 1920s-1940s and phased out of mainstream popularity by the mid 1950s. These magazines spun tales of mystery, intrigue, science fiction, adventure, fantasy, and romance, eagerly devoured by fans of the genres. While the inside pages were strictly black and white with few illustrations, the covers were full-color, often over-the-top artwork created by artists who specialized in the pulps, including Earle K. Bergey and Virgil Finlay.

Pulp magazines are fascinating to us today, as they reflect the times in which they were written. The colorful covers evoke nostalgia and interest in what lies within the pages inside. We’ve collected a selection of pulp covers and featured them in two of our brand-new titles, 2022 Vintage Pulp Detectives Calendar and 2022 Vintage Pulp Horror Calendar. You can see a sneak peek of both titles below. Our 2022 Vintage Sci-Fi Calendar is another example of these pulp covers. You can see a sneak peek of that here.
