On this week’s show we interview Penerotic, a traditional illustrator who creates comics, pinups and other forms of art. One might say he marries the great women-in-peril pulp art tradition with the whimsy of Hannah-Barbera. More importantly, Penerotic stands out by standing up for the value of free artistic expression.
For all of you around the world who are today sheltering and distancing, a tasty pulpy treat, a faithful (down to the yellowing of the paper on which it was printed!) recreation by the artist Penerotic of an interior illustration that appeared in the Winter 1944 issue of Thrilling Wonder Stories. You can learn more about the issue and its contents in this post. You can follow Penerotic on Twitter at @penerotic, on Instagram at @penerotica and if you like his art like me, you can also support him on Patreon.
Please do not alter or reproduce the recreation above without consent of the creators. Thank you and stay well!
