PULP NOW: AUDIOCOMICS ~ THE DOMINO LADY: ALL’S FAIR IN WAR!

PULP NOW: AUDIOCOMICS ~ THE DOMINO LADY: ALL’S FAIR IN WAR!

AudioComics Pulp is proud to announce the first episode in its Pulp Adventures series: The Domino Lady: All’s Fair in War. Created by Lars Anderson in the pages of Saucy Romantic Adventures and Mystery Adventures, The Domino Lady is the alter-ego of Ellen Patrick, a wealthy UC Berkeley graduate out to avenge the murder of her father, District Attorney Owen Patrick, in the Raymond Chandler-esque Southern California of 1935. While she brandished a .45 and syringe of knockout serum, her greatest weapon was her sexuality, which she would use to disarm her unsuspecting opponents. Routinely stealing from her targets, she donates most of the profits to charity after deducting her cut, leaving a calling card with the words “Compliments of the Domino Lady” behind.

Domino Lady appeared specifically in “spicy pulp” magazines, pulps that typically featured semi-pornographic short stories. Such magazines had smaller print runs (and were as a result a few cents higher in price) and were usually sold “under the counter” upon request. Only a handful of Domino Lady stories were published, all of which were collected in Bold Venture Press’ Compliments of the Domino Lady, featuring a cover from the one and only Jim Steranko. Now, for the first time ever in both pulp and audio history, the Domino Lady rides the radio waves as Ellen Patrick’s alter-ego makes her first appearance in 1935 San Diego, investigating the disappearance of an actual one million dollar bill from an International Exposition. Complication: the head of security is her cocky ex-boyfriend…

The Domino Lady: All’s Fair in War was recorded on November 19, 2011 in San Francisco, CA.
