AudioComics Pulp is proud to announce its first Pulp Adventures serial starring The Domino Lady.

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 Chandleresque Southern California of 1935. While she brandishes a .45 and syringe of knockout serum, her greatest weapon is her sexuality, which she uses to disarm her unsuspecting opponents. Routinely stealing from her targets, Ellen donates most of the profits to charity after deducting her cut, always leaving a calling card with the words “Compliments of the Domino Lady.”

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 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.

ALL’S FAIR IN WAR:

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…

Videographers Tom Spingola and Karen Stilwell have created a phenomal “behind the scenes” look at our Pulp Adventures recordings:

COMING SOON…MOXIE’S GAMBLE:

The California Pacific International Exposition is in full swing, the Domino Lady is wanted for a theft she didn’t commit, and the slimy Dan Carley has upped the anty with yet another robbery. But…is he really responsible? Ellen Patrick’s only hope for finding the truth lies in Carley’s “partner-in-crime,” former police detective “Moxie” Kaylor…who may not be what he appears to be. All this and a shoot-out to prove that ”Crime Does Not Pay!”

COMING SOON…BLOOD IS THICKER, PART ONE:

Ellen Patrick has relied on the aid of a select few as she began her war on crime, but none more than her Girl Friday and closest confidante, the “original plain Jane,” Dottie Jaster. They’ve been friends through thick and thin, through highs and lows. Now Dottie relates the finale of The Domino Lady’s debut in San Diego: Dan Carley’s plans against the Mayor and the Expo Committee have been foiled one too many times, leading him to unveil his boldest move yet: either Ellen leaves town, or Carley will expose her secret identity to the press! Enter Dottie…and a very elaborate plan to discredit the good Mr. Carley! Can they pull it off?
