Robot Pulp is an art series by Edwin B. Bickford III which combines his love of robots with the classic style of Golden Age Science Fiction magazine covers.

Shortly after Ed began producing the faux retro covers, Aaron Walther brought the concept full circle and began writing short stories to accompany the art prints.

The series started in 2015 when Ed self published eleven covers in Robot Pulp Magazine.

Later that year, he published a second issue containing eight new illustrations, as well as 16 pages of comics and a short story written by Aaron Walther.

Ed and Aaron went on to collaborate on two graphic novels, The Birdlander and American Chop Suey.

Though the magazine is no longer in production, Robot Pulp continues today as an online store where you can find all new illustrations and short stories with all that pulpy robot goodness!
