PULP HEROES

Created by Joshua Izzo.

Recipes

King of the Rocketmen
Commander Cody one of the first serialized heroes ever, and precursor of the legendary Rocketeer has been created in the 6" DC Direct scale. He has been made out of a Plan-B Rex Gannon torso and arms, a Toy Biz Spider-Man movie 01 J. Jonah Jameson legs and an N-2 Toys The Tick Arthur figures hands. His helmet is a modified 6" bendy Applause Rocketeer helmet and his jetpack is from a DC Direct Adam Strange. His gun is from a Tomb Raider Lara Croft figure and the figure details were made from vinyl, Magic Sculpt and Styrene.

Lobster Johnson
Lobster Johnson the first true member of the BPRD and oft-time spiritual guide of Hellboy and his colleagues has had one goal and one goal only in life and in death to smash and destroy the Nazi menace wherever it rears its ugly head. Lobster Johnson is a Toy Biz X-Men Movie 02 Magneto torso and arms, a Jakks Pacific Mummy 02 Movie Rick O'Connell figures legs, a Mattel Batman utility belt with Styrene tubing and a Plan-B holster and gun. His head is a DC Direct modern Flash with an N-2 Toys The Tick Arthur figures goggles.

The Escapist
Another 'new' pulp hero, the amazing Escapist from the Michael Chabon novel, "The Amazing Adventures of Cavalier and Clay", is a streamlined and simply styled defender of justice. He is a DC Direct Power Ring figure body and head with a DC Direct Question face. His mask is cut paper and the rest is all paint.
