THE KNIGHTMARE'S VERY COOL RIDE!

THE KNIGHTMARE'S VERE COOL RIDE!

BILL CUNNINGHAM, CREATOR OF THE NEW RADIO SERIES PULP CHARACTER THE KNIGHTMARE, GIVES US THE LOW DOWN ON HIS PULP HERO'S ULTIMATE MUSCLE CAR. BILL ALSO BLOGS AT PULP 2.0 . . .

Maybe this is an American thing, or possibly an Angeleno thing, but many of our pulp heroes and heroines have been defined by the vehicle they drive (or pilot):

Batman has the Bat-mobile...

The Shadow has Shrevvy the cab driver chauffeur him around in a Yellow cab...

The Green Hornet has The Black Beauty...

and Wonder Woman has her Invisible Plane.

So, while I paint a pretty good audio picture of our horrific hero's car in part one of The Knightmare: The Murder Legion Strikes at Midnight, it was one sharp-eared listener who goes by the handle "Planish" over at the Audio Drama Talk forums who knew the truth...

The Knightmare's rolling arsenal is real.

  1. People have asked me how I came up with the Knightmare...I didn't.

    He's real.
