Making the Baby Jeebus Cry

There’s a thread over on RPGnet, where gamers are posting ‘inspirational artwork’ for the pulp game, Spirit of the Century.

I love pulp, so I check it out. There’s really some excellent stuff in there — but there’s also more than a bit (veering quite steadily into Quite A Lot, actually) of people posting straight superhero, steampunk and even exalted-esque fantasy stuff.

We’re in, perhaps, the best time for Pulp gaming the industry has ever seen, with more commercially-viable, stable, regularly-supported pulp games than ever before…..

…and gamers still don’t seem to know what pulp IS.

This? PULP.

This? Kraven the Hunter from the Spider-man comics.
