The first Doc Savage story appeared in 1933 and the series ran in pulp and later digest format into 1949. Bantam reprinted the entire series in paperback with wonderful, iconic covers starting in the 1960's. Doc was arguably the first great modern superhero with a rich background, continuity, and mythos. The characterizations were far richer than was common for the pulps; his five associates and their sometimes-auxiliary, Doc's cousin Pat, and the pets Chemistry and Habeas Corpus, all had very ...more

I've often wondered what percentage of Doc Savage's original readers knew there were multiple writers producing these adventures. But surely the enormous variance in quality and writing styles raised plenty of red flags even among the less mature of its audience. Readers who just finished the August 1938 Harold Davis train wreck "The Munitions Master," a preposterous insult to the canon, a month later were treated to the measured, suspenseful and carefully crafted "The Red Terrors," by the ...more

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.

One of several Docs where the emphasis is less on the action and more on the exotic lost civilization the good guys encounter. In this case it's under the sea, preserved in a bubble of heavier-than-water gas, and targeted by killers (of course). Not a great one, but certainly entertaining reading.
