21 Pulp News
The newest story from us here at 21 Pulp, Imposter arrived nationally on February 24th. And there were no shortage of stellar reviews!
Graphic Policy gave it a 9.5 and said:
To get a feeling of this series, the opening issue has an almost Batman mixed with one of the pulp vigilantes sort of flavour, and yet the comic transcends that comparison in so many ways.
Arpad Okay at DoomRocket said:
The twist on heroism in Imposter is one of those great ideas that should be too good to work but does anyway (and gloriously).
Imposter promises to be an intriguing look at superhero identity and responsibility.
Geek-o-Rama gave it 4 out of 5 stars and called it “really intriguing.”

Carlos Trigo is a comic book artist from Spain. He’s been working actively for the US indie comic market since 2011. His published works include Crimson Society (Action Lab Comics), Ghoul Squad (The Higher Universe) and Mixmancer (Epigamics), and of course– Hero Hourly (21 Pulp).
Their job sucks too.
Lousy pay, passive-aggressive bosses, and slashed benefits – our second book Hero Hourly is hitting comic shops in November and asking what it would be like if being a super hero were no better than any other job.
After the market tanks, Saul Smirkanski finds employment at Hero Hourly, a company that didn’t ask if with great power comes great responsibility, but got a patent and a business loan so they could make a profit.
The 24-page first issue is by Batman and Harley Quinn writer James Patrick, 2000 AD artist Carlos Trigo, and Morning Glories colorist Alex Sollazzo. It can be ordered out of September Previews (#SEP151634) and will be in shops November 18th.
Check out the first few pages below, and be sure to order with #SEP151634 at your local comic shop!

Our favorite video comes from YouTuber Felcinator, who did a hilarious unboxing of all the items. (No, Jimmy isn’t picking his nose in one of the panels. At least, we hope not.)
