It must have been an exhausting PulpFest this year. It’s taking attendees a bit longer than usual to get their post-convention reports online. We’ll continue updating this post as new reports turn up.

For those of us who were unable to attend, checking out the reports and photos at least lets us virtually participate.

Now, onto the reports…

• Walker Martin’s report: As always, Walker Martin does a terrific recap of his visit to PulpFest 2012 over at the Mystery*File blog.

• PulpFest photos: Michael Neno has posted photos from three days of PulpFest 2012 on his blog, Eventized: Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3.

  1. I have 59 Photos of the First PULPFEST, 2009; 175 Photos for PULPFEST 2010; and 392 (!!!) for PULPFEST 2012 (sorry, missed 2011) at my site Yahoo group: PULP_MAGAZINES_CLIFFSNOTES –

    (and also posted at Pulpmags and Flickr (still working on Flickr, as they only let you post so many free photos each month)

    I’m going to follow up with the other groups also:

  2. Hey, easy on me, I’m a little ignorant on The Spider issue, but from what I can see in the images, he looks a bit like V from Alan Moore’s comic V for Vendetta : black outfit, hat, cloak, whig or long hair. And like V, looks like one man struggles alone against a totalitarian regime. The only thing is that he replaces the two guns with daggers. Am I wrong??????
