Book Review: Pulphope: Art of Paul Pope

Art of Paul Pope

Pulphope is the title of the book, which is actually printed inside page 1.

Pulphope is actually a collection of freelance comics, illustrations and essays from Paul Pope. His comic strokes and inking are very unique, and sometimes chaotic. Do note that there are some explicit nudity in the book.

You can check out more of his art on his blog, which is also named Pulphope.

The gem of the book is probably the essays. Written in first person, Paul Pope talks about his life and career. Every piece talks about a particular subject. For example, one will talk about his preferred workflow, which is to work non-stop for three days except to eat and sleep, then take a day off. Another piece will be about the first time he saw manga and the influence it had on his work. There are a few essays scattered throughout the book that makes for interesting read.

This book should easily appeal to Paul Pope fans.

I was trying to gather from

I was trying to gather from reviews and photos whether or not there is a Nick Cave page/essay because I haven't been able to see the book at a local store. I know he did a page that was a tribute to Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds sometime during the mid-late 90s. Is it in this collection?
