characters who enjoyed the longevity of Doc…THE SHADOW and THE
SPIDER were two pulp magazines with respectably lengthy runs, along
with G8 AND HIS BATTLE ACES and OPERATOR NO. 5.

“The boy is so stupid; to count to twenty-one he'd have to drop his pants.”
James Axler

“The leader, a big-bellied Mexican wearing a huge sombrero, sat in a black saddle studded with silver conchos. Spurs jingled at the heels of his boots. A necklace of human ears hung from around his neck. The blood on them still looked fairly fresh.”
James Axler, Warlord Of The Pit
