Pulp Hero: Ghost Zero!


The 3D Man sez: "GHOST ZERO is better than sex on a waxed surf board with a giant squid, Ava Gardner and Screamin' Jay Hawkins!!!"







That's right. At least, I'll take the 3D Man's word for it.

Dave Flora is the creator of this great character design, and conceit, and his art is also amazing. There's pretty much nothing Flora doesn't excell at where it concerns his one true love, originally known as the Revenant, now Ghost Zero.

Dig this: a kid finds a ring containing the vengeful ghost of a Pulp destroyer-of-evil. The kid accepts being the "host" for this destroyer, and when confronted with evil, the kid is possessed by the Revenant, who unleashes all kinds of hell on the hell-bound.

And that doesn't even begin to illustrate how cool Ghost Zero actually is.

We're all going to get our chance, though, as GHOST ZERO is now officially with the publisher Moonstone Books, and in the back of their (ending) PHANTOM series upcoming, will be a GHOST ZERO short story. Also, when the new SPIDER books are released, you'll be getting a regular dose of this series.

The page is VERY low rent at this point, but anything I can do to promote GHOST ZERO, I'll do (within the rules of sanitation.)

Heck, GHOST ZERO's web presence made me want to get something online, and that's no hyperbole. Thank YOU, sir!
