THE MOST UNIQUE DETECTIVE OF CLASSIC PULP RETURNS! NEW INSPECTOR ALLHOFF NOVEL-DEAD CAT BOUNCE- DEBUTS!
A Consulting Detective with the Brilliance of Holmes…and An Insanity All His Own that made his debut in the Classic Pulps is back in a full length novel from Pro Se Productions! D. L. Champion’s twisted, yet genius investigator, Inspector Allhoff makes a dark, exciting return by arrangement with Steeger Properties, LLC., in DEAD CAT BOUNCE, an all new novel by E. W. Farnsworth.
Originally appearing in Dime Detective Magazine in the 1930s and 40s, Allhoff was a detective like no other. Mangled and left without legs after leading a failed police raid, Allhoff found himself an unofficial consultant to the New York Police Department. Kept in a rundown tenement across from headquarters, Allhoff is assisted by two men, both of which he tortures with his aggressive nature and abrasive words. One, the rookie responsible for bungling the raid which left the great detective an invalid and the other, a career cop going through hell just to get to his retirement. Three men who stew in a cesspool of hate, self doubt, and anger, and yet, led by Allhoff, they solve the strangest cases the NYPD has ever faced!
In DEAD CAT BOUNCE, wealthy collectors of weapons are dying in locked rooms and the NYPD cannot stop the rash of murders. That means that Inspector Allhoff and his assistants are on the case. But can they stop the phantomlike killer before more noted citizens die or is this the case that will put an end to their careers? And will Allhoff’s men rise to meet the challenge of the mystery while being beaten by his acerbic attitude and caustic attacks or will they simply leave the broken man to twist in the proverbial wind?

I wasn't actually a huge fan of Robert Kirkman when I first started reading his books. He was competent, sure, but I didn't see the appeal-- The Irredeemable Ant-Man was a boring side story in the middle of Civil War and The Initiative (although I've since changed my mind about this), and his Ultimate X-Men run was, in many places, a mixed bag (although I did very much enjoy his "Phoenix?" storyline). And Marvel Zombies just seemed like a ridiculous idea--not that I bothered to try it at the time. Now, though? I've completely reevaluated my opinion on his work, and when his name is attached to a project, I'm far more likely to give it a look. I don't know if I'd classify him as a master storyteller or a comics icon--but he's very skilled, he has an incredible knack for dialog, and he writes stories that, no matter how ridiculous, seem real . In a medium where characters frequently violate the rules of physics, that's not alway

VAMPIRE VIXENS OF THE WEHRMACHT “If You Want Blood” one-shot (Bump and Grind Comics, August 2013, second printing with foreword by film maker Paul Campion) Writers: The Emperor + Alex Ronald. Artist: Alex Ronald. Letterer: Jim Campbell. Original Concept: Alex Ronald. (Parental Advisory, Adult Content) Limited print run, but digital copies are available from http://www.vampirevixens.co.uk/ If you can’t figure out what this comic is about from that title, then I’m guessing you’ve been living for decades in a cave without a DVD player and no access to cable television. VAMPIRE VIXENS OF THE WEHRMACHT is a fast-paced horror comic driven by action, rooted in World War II history, and dripping with blood, gore and tantalizing sexual imagery. What makes it work is a light-hearted approach to the subject matter, all in fun but never silly or stupid. You may find yourself laughing at several of the scenarios or chuckling at the devilish dialogue. VAMPIRE VIXENS O
