Pulp Who - A Decade of Mindless Violence

Not only does RTP! turn ten this year, but so does the first comic published in the pages of the fanzine. Pulp Who arrived in December 1997, a huge 14 pages crashing into the second issue with all the subtlety of a sledgehammer. In many ways it set some of the early boundaries on what would be acceptable in the fanzine, featuring swearing, extreme violence, and references to sex. It also set the other standard: that of 'borrowing' heavily from other sources—in this case the Tarantino film Pulp Fiction.

Still, some people liked it despite the crude drawings and very unoriginal script.

To help celebrate ten years of RTP! and a decade of Pulp Who, a new three-part re-issue of the comic is planned to begin in December 2007 with the first volume (volumes 2 and 3 to follow in 2008).
