I think it could be. So long as it had decent writers, and didn't confine itself only to the movie characters.

#5

they shouldn’t be doing that,pulp fiction is one of the best movies in the universe (after reservoir dogs ;D)

them shouldn’t be messin with that


#6

There are a couple of “Pulp Fiction” comics that I know of. 100 bullets and Sin City to name a few. Not licensed products, but stories very much in the “pulp fiction” genre.


#7

i don’t think they meant pulp fiction like a genre, i think they meant comics about the movie.

No kidding, but since QT hasn’t started pimping out his characters a la Lucas, there is little chance of an Actual licensed comic. I’m just reccomending some alternatives that have a pulp fiction feel. Another one that kind of reminds me of Pulp is “Preacher”. A little weird and fantastical(not to mention blashemous, if you believe in that sort of thing), but the focus on dialogue and extreme situations really reminds me of Tarantino.

Personally, I’d like to see Quentin lease some of his Kill Bill characters over to some of the anime gurus in Japan, and see some short film, violent, over the top Japanese interperatations of his characters ala the AniMatrix. I agree with the others though on QT giving away the rights to such classic characters as Mr. Blonde, Vincent Vega, Jules, etc. to someone else, but seeing the Bill characters in an anime series or anime short film would just be cool.

yeah, animatrix style Kill Bill movies would own.



But Tarantino selling some characters to comic companies or whatever would be cool also. I could see like The Vega Brothers (which in no way can be made into a film) be turned into a comic. I think that’d be fun. ;D

I’d buy it. Or at least read it for free at the local comic shop.


#12

I’d buy it or any books on the extended universe in which TRUE ROMANCE, RESERVOIR DOGS & PULP FICTION take place in


#13

There is a Pulp Fiction comic, on the DVD, if you go to the Phot Gallery, they have some bits from it. The dailogue is all in french though.



It looks really cool.



And what’s this I hear about Tarantino licensing characters?


#14

Maybe someone can translate it for us jamericans. ATTENTION ALL FRENCH SPEAKERS. LOOK AT THE COMIC AND PLEASE TELL US WHAT IT SAYS! IT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED AND I’M SURE THAT YOU WOULD BE INVITED TO MANY-A-BIRTHDAY PARTY.

Yes, a Pulp Fiction comic book series would definitely be Uber-cool. I think it would be good if they could get some comic legend to crank some out (hey, if Stan Lee’s doing Stripperella, anything’s possible). It might be a good idea to make some around the gang from Reservoir Dogs before the catastrophic last job which killed almost all of 'em in addition to Pulp Fiction stories in the same time period. New characters would be a good i dea too, but not like really uber-dumb ones (maybe show what Jimmie and the Wolf were like in their prime).

By the way, to whoever asked; as soon as I pass Fench I, I’ll try and translate the comic from the DVD for you, but don’t expect it any time soon
