    Such potential.

    Scweet.

    Not to mention a good education for me that is. Never knew what pulp referred to in pulp fiction.

    Oh dear, just when I was wanting to mess around with pulpy styles, too... I might not be able to resist this one.

    (Kind of tried for a pulp look last time, don't think it worked 100%...)

    Dang, though, can't it be more of a 1930's/40's pulp cover? Those are the best ones...

    Haha, some of those covers from the second link are wonderful. 'Planet of the Knob Heads' indeed. Great idea. Struggling to think of a way of presenting something outrageous while keeping enough focus on 'Dan' at the moment though.

    Terrible Twins of Torture sounds the most tempting right now.

    Sorry, but what the heck does "campy" mean?

    Zaorr, it's usually something that lacks taste or (current) fashion sense, but is enjoyable. So while making fun of babies with big heads may not be fashionable, you could make Sergeant Dan vs. The Big Giant Baby Head.

    Or watch...
