The article presents information about various online sites related to pulp magazines which are ancestors of comic books printed on cheap paper. The Pulp.Net [http://thepulp.net/] is a collection of resources on pulps, either online or in print. Since they are created mostly by fans, there is no comprehensive Web site on the whole world of pulp magazines. The reader must complement one site with another to get a fuller picture. The site Pulp and Adventure Heroes of the Pre-War Years [http://www.geocities.com/jjnevins/pulpsintro.html] gives a short description of the most notable pulp heroes and other adventure book characters. The 86th Floor [http://members.aol.com/the86floor1 index.html], by fan and graphic designer Chris Kalb, is all about Superman's inspiration, Doc Savage. Finally, The Pulp Gallery [http://www.pulp gallery.com/], is one of the most extensive online pulp magazine cover galleries. The site is hosted on a photo album service, which makes its structure a bit confusing. But with a whopping 2400 images collection, it is still a good site to browse through.
