A noirish futuristic world founded by a religious cult that left Earth on New Year's Eve, 1999 is the setting for a provocative detective thriller. SON OF SUPERMAN writers Howard Chaykin and David Tischman join artist Rick Burchett (BATMAN: GOTHAM ADVENTURES) for an offbeat mixture of classic film noir, science fiction and psychological thrillers. Featuring covers pencilled by Chaykin and inked by Burchett, PULP FANTASTIC follows the adventures of dashing detective Vector Pope on an artificial planet run by diehard religious fanatics who left Earth at the end of 1999. What appears to be a simple missing-persons case quickly turns seamy and steamy as Pope has dangerous run-ins with the law and a drug-addicted android whose body is a deadly weapon. It's a violent, passionate and humorous story illustrated in a quasi-animated style which provides a unique counterpoint to its lurid backdrop of sex, corruption, church politics, and hypocrisy.
