Pulp Reality returns with a brand-new issue filled with action, suspense, and intrigue...





Gathered in these pages are eight stories, written and illustrated by the Masterminds of New Pulp, including Charles F. Millhouse, John C. Bruening, Clyde Hall, Bobby Nash, Candice Comelleri. Damián Avilés, Clayton Murwin, Ted Davies, and many more.

Stormgate Press has put out their fourth issue of Pulp Reality, dated Fall 2022, a year after the previous issue. I think their original plans were for this to come out a little sooner, but things happen. We should see the next issue in 2023.

'Pulp Reality' #4Like the previous issues, it’s a large size at 8.5- by 11-inches and 180 pages, more than last time, though still with eight stories. We also get the return of some characters from the earlier issues, which I was expecting. This time it’s a mix of mercenaries, adventurers, pulp heroes, and more, with a new Captain Hawklin story as well. Each story has an artwork piece.

Editor and publisher Charles Millhouse gives us a weird-western tale, which is cover featured. It has aliens and cowboys and all that. It’s pretty good, though I would have liked a new story with his other characters NightVision (from #2) or Purple Mystique (#3). We did get a nice NightVision pinup in this issue. I think this was done to help promote Stormgate Press’ upcoming Old West collection.

Pulp Reality #4

Captain Steven Hawklin is known worldwide as an adventurer, explorer, and hero. Mantles put to the test when he is faced with humiliation after the destruction of the Osiris Project.

Unable to face failure, Steven takes a dark path, turning his back on his dreams, his career, and his friends. When he is approached by Alla Sokol, a Russian scientist on the run from her government after the failure of a secret Soviet project, Steven finds a path to his own redemption in the frozen wastelands of Siberia.

They are pursued by a relentless Russian Major, hell bent on eradicating anyone involved in the experiment. Can Steven prevent him from killing Alla, stop the invisible creature created by the insidious research, and deal with his own demons in the process?

Captain Hawklin and the Invisible Enemy is a throwback to times gone by, in the tradition of Doc Savage, Flash Gordon, Indiana Jones and the Rocketeer.
