Beaten To A Pulp

Carrie had to work Thursday, but we both have Friday off and went on a trip down to Portland. We got food from Sun Oriental Market and from Trader Joe's, we got comics from Casablanca, we got books from Green Hand, and I took a picture of a post office. But the main reason for the trip was to finally get to the gallery show at the Portland Public Library. The Pulps!

 On display were both original art and the magazines and novels whose covers they became.

 Of special interest were the Tarzan paintings they had. Including J. Allen St. John! Some other known characters were also represented, including Doc Savage and The Shadow (who I had to explain to some people was one of the good guys.)

 And being who we are, we didn't attend empty handed. No, we brought props!

Exiting, we noticed this display.
