“As writers, we wanted the words to play a more important role than they do in graphic novels. But by adding a visual dimension to our true stories â€“ and portraying history in all its terrible and beautiful glory â€“ we thought we could make the past shine through the shadows for a new generation of readers.” ~ David Talbot, thetalbotplayers.com

Amazon Product Description:
Pulp History brings to life extraordinary feats of bravery, violence, and redemption that history has forgotten. These stories are so dramatic and thrilling they have to be true. In DEVIL DOG, the most decorated Marine in history fights for America across the globeâ€”and returns home to set his country straight. Smedley Butler took a Chinese bullet to the chest at age eighteen, but that did not stop him from running down rebels in Nicaragua and Haiti, or from saving the lives of his men in France. But when he learned that America was trading the blood of Marines to make Wall Street fat cats even fatter, Butler went on a crusade. He threw the gangsters out of Philadelphia, faced down Herbert Hoover to help veterans, and blew the lid off a plot to overthrow FDR.
