Of all the pulp era heroes few stand out above the crowd, Doc Savage is one of these. With his 5 aides and cousin he adventures across the world. Fighting weird menaces, master criminals and evil scientists Doc and the Fab 5 never let you down for a great read. These stories have all you need; fast paced action, weird mystery, and some humor as the aides spat with each other. My highest recommendation.

2.5, really. This story is impressively epic—giants, burning snow, mind control, disintegration, a mad scientist plotting to become a benevolent world dictator—but reading the series in sequence, it's too obvious how much it borrows from Laurence Donovan's previous Haunted Ocean and Men Who Smiled No More.
