Comics Icon PAUL POPE Publishes His Second Artbook With BOOM! Studios  

The long anticipated PULPHOPE 2 hits shelves Fall 2024

I am very excited to share this news and press release.

LOS ANGELES, CA (April 2, 2024) – Iconic auteur and New York Times bestselling cartoonist Paul Pope (Battling Boy, Batman: Year 100) brings the highly anticipated and long asked for follow up to PulpHope: The Art of Paul Pope with PULPHOPE 2: THE ART OF PAUL POPE. Paul and BOOM! Studios are proud to answer the call of art fans and collectors everywhere in putting this essential and much asked-for book in their hands, full of new insights and expanded visuals from the cartooning legend himself.
PULPHOPE 2: THE ART OF PAUL POPE is the definitive collection of art spanning the entirety of the Eisner Award-Winner’s extraordinary career to date. Some of these pieces haven’t been seen since 2006’s PulpHope, and much of it has never been seen anywhere, ever. The beautifully designed and carefully crafted tome has been hand curated by Pope to invite the reader into his studio to see his ever-growing development as an artist–from a child’s energetic scribbles to a mature artist’s holistic compositions.
Fans of Paul’s library of work will relish the invitation to get a peek at his process, and newcomers to his work couldn’t ask for a better introduction. PULPHOPE 2: THE ART OF PAUL POPE is a sampling of the best of the Comics Destroyer’s rock and roll, manga-infused work so far, and a taste of what is still to come.
“In my work as a cartoonist/comic book artist or just plain artist, I’ve always sought to expand the definitions of what we can do both with the medium and as visual thinkers. I’ve always sought to push the assumed barriers of what it means to be a modern pop artist. PULPHOPE2 incorporates a wide range of the work I’ve done both inside and out the comics industry, much of which either hasn’t been widely seen or seen presented in the way. In this 338pg catalogue, we’ve tried to pull from the best of my works up to 2024, including comics, fashion design, album art, silkscreens, and personal work –revealed here for the first time. We hope you enjoy!” said Paul Pope in a statement about PULPHOPE 2.
PULPHOPE 2: THE ART OF PAUL POPE will be available in comic shops October 9, 2024, and everywhere books are sold October 15, 2024. It is available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and at your local bookstore and comic shop. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including Kindle, iBooks, and Google Play.
PULPHOPE 2: THE ART OF PAUL POPE will be available in softcover, hardcover, and signed hardcover editions.
