Then, people started looking back on the pulp era nostalgically, and when they did, they usually locked onto the over-the-top stories of heroes like ''Radio/TheShadow'', ''Franchise/DocSavage'', and ''ComicStrip/ThePhantom''. Many point to ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'' and the sequel ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' movies, which took 1930s pulp adventures as an inspiration (along with a RealLife zoologist/paleontologist, Roy Chapman Andrews, who basically did what Indy did but in the Gobi Desert), as the keystone of the pulp resurgence, but whatever kicked it off, pulp has recaptured the heart of many a geek.

* If ''SavageWorlds'' can be said to have a "default setting," it's this. One of the first supplements was a Pulp Toolkit, and the whole system's emphasis on "Fast Furious Fun!" leads to a very pulpy game experience.
