I've been blathering on for a while about the pulp RPG supplements I've been working on for Adamant Entertainment.
Typically, these are PDF only—we publish through DriveThruRPG/RPGNow—and the system available to us does allow for print-on-demand.
That said, the individual supplements are designed to be low-cost for the consumer, so they don't run more than 35-40 pages. Meaty pages, but still, not giant mega-sourcebooks.
This means that the print-on-demand option is not particularly cost effective for the consumer.
Recently, though, we took a page from the comics biz: we've amassed enough of these supplements to combine into a "trade paperback" of sorts—edited and updated, with some new material into the bargain, and can charge a not-extravagant price for it as a print-on-demand book. (Plus you get the PDF, too.)
So, I give you, for Thrilling Tales, Second Edition: "Axis of Evil, Volume One," an omnibus of pulp villainy.
This book contains a heavily updated version of Pulp Villains: Violet, plus:
Pulp Villains: Count Shadau
Pulp Villains: The Yellow King
Pulp Villains: Von Keiner
Pulp Villains: The Subterranean Monarch
Pulp Villains: Baron Korga
HEY KIDS, COMICS!
