According to distributors Seymour: “Pulp Detective is a magazine based around three illustrated short stories. The stories are all set in a fictional 1930’s American city called Bay City, a city over run with organized crime.
The first story of each issue is in a third person perspective and follows the life of Federal Agent John Munro, as he takes on Bay City’s most notorious criminals. The intention is for the story line to be on-going through each separate issue, so that the reader always wants the next instalment.
This is the same for the second story, which is in a first person perspective (which works well for private detective novels) and follows the life of Private Detective Henry Reed as he goes about Bay City solving his cases.
The third story in each issue will be random each month. Bank robbers, prize fighters, hitmen and other criminals will be the centre of these stories all still set in the underworld of Bay City.
Each story is around 14,000 words and intended for a predominantly male readership of around 10 to 18 years of age. An age range which, in our opinion, is currently poorly catered for.
There are also other features within the magazine like the Character Profiles, Bay City Babe, Gang Territory Map and others that will change each month and evolve with the magazine.
We feel Pulp Detective has substance and will keep our audience gripped from issue to issue.”
