Wordsmith (Caliber)

    (Caliber, 1996)
©1996 Dave Darrigo and R.G. Taylor

Americans trapped in the Great Depression of the 1930s escaped from their troubles by reading the fast-paced, slam-bang action and adventure stories served up in the many pulp magazines of the era— stories written by penny-a-word writers with no literary pretensions beyond earning enough for their next meal.

Wordsmith, a spare black-and-white series from Dave Darrigo and R.G. Taylor, follows the life and troubles of struggling pulp writer Clay Washburn as the everyday dramas of his life intermingle with the dashing adventures of his pulp heroes. Wordsmith is marinated in the 1930s atmosphere, starkly illustrated with an expressionistic economy of line by Taylor, and told with genuine affection for the pulps and their times.
