My interview at All Pulp

The kind folks of All Pulp, a site devoted to covering all news concerning pulp fiction, its authors and events, have done an interview with me which is now available here. It includes a small art gallery of my work, including some old pieces which were only available at my now-defunct original site.
Check it out!

A new comic series

Starting next week, I'll be uploading a new ongoing comic series right here on my blog. Every Saturday, a new color page for the next year or so.

It's been a while since my previous comic ended and I should note that this will be a new story with new characters in a new world, no relation at all with my previous comic series, which, btw, you can check out in its entirety at http://pedrocruzonline.blogspot.com/

I hope you'll join me and share your thoughts, questions and comments as the work progresses. As far as the work itself goes, the only thing I can promise you is that it will be... different.

Don't forget to check out the blog regularly every Saturday or, better yet, subscribe it and get it on your own mail.

JIM ANTHONY - SUPER DETECTIVE in THE HUNTERS



The latest book I've done illustrations for is now on sale.

Airship 27 Productions and Cornerstone Book Publishers roll out their second volume starring the hero who is half-Irish, half-Comanche and All-American. Classic pulp hero, Jim Anthony; Super Detective returns in a brand new novel in two parts that pits him against all kinds of strange and legendary beasts. And in both cases he is accompanied by fanatical hunter, Russian Count Zaroff from the classic short story, The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell.

In part one, Death In Yellow, by Joshua Reynolds, Anthony and Zaroff square off against a group of savage Tibetan Yetis loose in the steel canyons of Manhattan. Why these creatures are here and who is behind their murderous rampage is a classic mystery that challenges the one and only Super Detective. Then in part two, On The Periphery of Legend, by Micah S. Harris, Anthony reluctantly accompanies the mad Russian on an expedition to a lost island in the South Pacific where dinosaurs still roam. But that’s not the most dangerous game in those time lost jungles.

Here are two amazing tales woven together into a classic pulp adventure that will test the mettle of our hero and his loyal companions! Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to present JIM ANTHONY – SUPER DETECTIVE Vol. Two – THE HUNTERS! Features interior illustrations by Pedro Cruz and a stunning cover by Chris Sears.

You can buy it online here.

More Hugo Pratt



Back in January 2008, we were lucky enough to visit the french city of Angoulême for its Annual Bande-Dessinée Festival. It was a once in a lifetime experience to witness a whole city transfigured by the imaginary of comics. There were some aspects of the overall event that I found less bright, particularly for a foreigner's first time, but I'd say that all in all it was quite positive and enlightening as an experience - it certainly made me understand the whole comics/bande-dessinée/manga world as an even more commercial enterprise than what I'd already suspected. On the other hand, there was the unique opportunity of seeing original artwork and pages at expos spreadout through town. I was particularly impressed with a couple of delightful pieces by the great late Hugo Pratt, which I now present here. Naturally the photos don't do it justice, but I think it's still worth sharing. Enjoy!
