Bobby Nash received a 2011 Pulp Ark Award Nomination in the category “Best Pulp Related Comic” for his work with LANCE STAR, SKY RANGER.
Your comic has received a Pulp Ark BEST PULP comic nomination. Tell us a little about LANCE STAR, SKY RANGER. I started out writing comics then novels, before getting involved with the revival of the pulps. It was the pulps that led to the creation of Lance Star: Sky Ranger for Airship 27’s anthology series. In 2010 I decided to take Lance and Co. into comics as well. With the help of the incredibly talented James Burns on art Lance Star: Sky Ranger “One Shot!” was born.
Comics and pulps are interrelated mediums. Do you think the comic form should be a more vital part of the pulp genre? Sure. Why not? Pulp and comics share many traits. I think many pulp-style stories work well in a comic book format. I certainly plan to do more.
What might be coming up that could you get back on the Pulp Ark Award list for 2011? There are plans for another Lance Star: Sky Ranger one shot comic in 2011. It is written and currently with the artists. There’s also the upcoming All-Star Pulp Comic which features a Secret Agent X story that I wrote. I also have several pulpy prose books on tap for 2011 including Lance Star: Sky Ranger Vol. 3, Secret Agent X Vol. 4, The Danger People, Rick Ruby, Pulp P.I., and The Wraith, among a few others I can’t mention at the moment.
