AUTHOR PROFILE: Glenn Porzig

Currently one of two of the authors working with Graphic Pulp, Glenn Porzig grew up reading comics, pulp novels, and watching too much TV. He lives in southern Indiana with his wife and a menagerie of both furry and scaly pets. Since 2005, when not writing, xboxxing, or spending time with his wife, he's also been the co-host of PodCulture.com, a weekly fandom podcast.

Glenn has worked over twenty years in the television industry including two highly rated specials for SCI FI Channel; The Roswell Crash: Startling New Evidence, and The New Roswell: Kecksburg Exposed. He currently, literally, has his head in the clouds as a videographer on a TV news helicopter.

For the past several years, Glenn turned from writing screenplays with his wife to writing short stories and novellas. Glenn's first short story, Master of the Dead, was published by Destroyer Books in More Blood: A Sinanju Anthology



His debut occult horror novella, Darkness Unbound: Lady in Black, was released the summer of 2014, and was later brought to life as an audiobook by Scream Queen Brinke Stevens.

Glenn has gone on to pen to more installments in the Darkness Unbund series: Terror of Night, and Shadow of Death , both of which are also available on audio. Glenn is currently working on a fourth Darkness story, and has two more installments on the way.

You can learn more about his writing projects at DarknessUnbound.com.

What is GRAPHIC PULP?

If you're an indie author, you know how hard promoting your work can be. For two Midwest Indies with a love of Pulp, Horror, and Men's Adventure, and who happened to be cousins, a simple solution came to mind: cross promote each other. 

Few people enjoy sitting at a table at a show all day. I mean, you'd rather be walking around, seeing what a show has to offer, right? If only there was someone you could get to sit there for you? Or what if you can't make it to a show, because of other commitments? No problem, just get someone to take some of your books to the show for you, and you'll reciprocate in the future. 

That's what Graphic Pulp is--a small group of authors, cross-promoting modern Pulp in the Midwest, and beyond. 

Starting tomorrow, you can learn a little bit about our authors, with a weekly intro on who we are, what we write, what we're working on, and where we might be showing up. We'll also talk about what we love in the Pulp, Men's Adventure, and Horror genres, old and new, and we might just scrounge up some interviews with authors we've met around the world.

A new source for Pulp, Horror and Men's Adventure!

Welcome to the Graphic Pulp Blog--your first stop for news from the Graphic Pulp line of action and adventure stories.

What is Graphic Pulp? It's a cooperative venture between independent authors to produce new content on a monthly basis for lovers of two-fisted literary action. Each author in Graphic Pulp works on their own projects bypassing the dinosaurs of traditional publishing to write new adventures and release them in a fraction of the time readers are used to. Graphic Pulp means big adventure, on a regular basis, quickly.

Pulp, the father of action-adventure ruled the pages in the early 20th Century. Tales of two-fisted heroes battling in epic good vs evil face offs were all the rage, appearing in monthly and even weekly periodicals. Heroes like Doc Savage, the Shadow and The Spider battled mad scientists, criminal masterminds and haters of freedom at breakneck speed. Readers weren't burdened with filler or chapters full of nothing but dialogue. Pulp meant action, and from its wonderful example came other forms of fast-paced adventure...


Men's Adventure rose to prominence in the post-World War II era, as GIs who grew up reading about black-and-white lines between right and wrong came back from a war filled with horrors they had never imagined. Action needed to ramp the violence up to impress these readers. Men's Adventure was born, with femme fatales, plenty of blazing gun battles and heroes who didn't always wear white. From James Bond to the Destroyer, the Men's Adventure era was filled with action and adventure of spine-chilling magnitude...


Horror has been around for  along time, from the days of Mary Shelley and HP Lovecraft up through the master of modern terror, Stephen King. Horror novels thrill readers through fear and maybe a few buckets of blood here and there. Monsters, madmen and even magic reign supreme in Horror, and mankind often isn't enough to stand against it.


Graphic Pulp's authors combine the best of these three genres to craft tales of over-the-top action. Enjoy the ride!
