What is Pacific-Noir?

Pacific-Noir Pulp Press has set out provide fresh take on the classic pulp magazines made popular during the 1950s, while infusing the Pacific Culture of the founders in each work. A cross between a graphic novel and a magazine depicting a variety of fiction genres. The term "Pulp Ficition" burst back onto the scene in 1994 after the wildly successful Quentin Tarantino film brought the genre back into the spotlight. However, pulp fiction had a long and active life in America's popular literature before this. "Pulps" weren't graphic novels, but they were graphically illustrated with pen-and-ink art to complement an array of different kind of fiction stories. We intend to inspire a new following behind this once dominant fiction industry through the powerful short stories in each unique Pulp-Fiction Magazine.
