In 2012, Pro Se Productions, a Publisher of New Pulp and Genre Fiction, began the Pulp Obscura imprint in conjunction with Altus Press, a renowned publisher of quality reprints of Classic Pulps and New Pulp as well. Pulp Obscura is a line of anthologies and books that featured classic, often forgotten pulp characters in new tales by today’s best writers. Pro Se proudly announces the release of the latest volume in this line, one featuring the return of a character from the creator of Zorro- The New Adventures of the Man in Purple!
Created by Johnston McCulley, the man who brought Zorro to life, The Man in Purple is Richard Staegal, a wealthy man-about-town with a colorful past. Donning a purpled mask and suit, Staegal leads a life of outrageous adventure stealing from the rich and ruthless and giving the spoils away to the powerless people who are unable to fight for themselves.
“One of the best things,” says Tommy Hancock, Partner in and Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “about doing something like Pulp Obscura is the opportunity to bring back characters that add to the legacy of a great Pulp author. Known almost exclusively for Zorro, Johnston McCulley created more than one masked do-gooder for fans of Genre Fiction to thrill to. They all had similar characteristics in common, but they each had their own distinct twist as well. The Man of Purple definitely deserves the spotlight along with McCulley’s other heroes and Pro Se is pleased to give it to him.”
