I am rather new to the forum community and wanted to ask some opinion questions related to the pulp universe that Dynamite is creating to see what the community thinks.
After reading through Dynamite Entertainment's major cross over miniseries Masks (which was awesome by the way) I was left wondering about the status of the pulp universe that Dynamite is creating. At this point in time we have already been introduced to The Shadow, The Green Hornet, The Spider, Miss Fury, and The Black Bat through their ongoing series as well as some Year One miniseries. Though not all of these comic book lines are set in the same time period (for example: The Shadow and Green Hornet are set in traditional pulp eras while The Spider and Black Bat are in modern times,...and Miss Fury well she is a little of both) all of these characters are classic pulp fiction heroes. However, the Masks cross over brought some previous Golden Age superheroes into the same line as the pulp comics. Characters like The Black Terror and Green Lama played large roles in this cross over event (http://unleashthefanboy.s3.amazonaws...10/masks3a.jpg). These characters were previously re-introduced into comics by Dynamite in their Project Superpowers series with some other spin off stories. One character that was included in the Project Superpowers line was The Owl. Dynamite started publishing a new ongoing series based on this character where The Owl has been removed from the Golden Age era and put into modern times (comes out tomorrow so check it out http://cdn3-www.craveonline.com/asse...1-Cov-Ross.jpg). There was also the announcement of Codename: Action which also features The Green Lama again with the pulp fiction characters (http://comicbuzz.com/wp-content/uplo...-Cov1F0D0A.jpg). This got me wondering if Dynamite is trying to merge the pulp fiction universe with the Project Superpowers one. So I was wondering what everyone thinks. Would you like it if these 2 universes were merged together? Or would you prefer they remain separate aside from a few special cross over stories here and there? Not only that, but with all of the characters being spread between their respective eras or thrust into modern times, would you prefer all of the characters are put on the same time line? Or have them randomly distributed between modern eras and pulp/golden age eras? If they are one the same time line which era would you prefer?
Let me know what you think!
