August 26, 2012 / 0 comments

If you are 15 years old, and really bored, you may decide to count the words used in Doc Savage titles. You may even post this on the web for other fans to see. Boy, are you twisted…

Hate it (most everyone) or love it (who are you?), the 2010-2011 DC Doc Savage comic came to a crashing halt with a digital only release of the final issue.

Doc Savage on the Funny Pages

April 2, 2012 / 1 comment

We rarely feature Doc Savage material that doesn’t reside in the Hidalgo Trading Company. (Links get moved, sites close, and other problems just remind us it’s better to keep everything in-house.) That said, rush over to Rip Jagger’s Dojo to read The Return of Dave Cockrum’s Doc Savage — two weeks of Doc for the…

The Timeline of the Bleeding Sun

February 13, 2012 / 1 comment

Quite a few years ago there was a shenanigan perpetuated by Doc Savage fans. Well, not all of the fans. Just a few. At dinner during a Pulpcon, a few of us marveled over the lists of Jay Ryan. In a homemade collection of sheets Jay has assembled all sorts of information about the various…

How the Doc Savage Novel ‘Bleeding Sun’ Came to Be

February 13, 2012 / 0 comments

Reprinted from DocSavage.Info March 2001 shenanigan: “a playful or mischievous act; a prank.” At first Bleeding Sun was a shenanigan. In 1998, a few attendees of Pulpcon pretended there was a Doc Savage novel named Bleeding Sun. There wasn’t. That was the fun. Now it really is a novel. A fine work of fiction written…

Room rates will be $109 a night, which includes parking for one. It’ll probably be best to split your…

Pulpfest 2011

July 27, 2011 / 2 comments

DocSavage.org is back, though not in the updated condition I expected. The new design was causing major readability issues. So I’ve reverted to the previous look while I attend Pulpfest. Look here for nightly updates and breaking Pulpfest news for the next four days.

Doc Savage Radio Actor Identified

March 1, 2011 / 1 comment

With the recent pulp reprint publications of THE SHADOW and DOC SAVAGE, it seems about the perfect time to explore the medium of radio which dramatized the same stories that appeared in the pulps, on the radio. The origin of the DOC SAVAGE radio program began in December 1932, when the Knox Company of St….

Doc Savage Batman First Wave Begins

November 11, 2009 / 10 comments

The one shot comic combining the worlds of Doc Savage and Batman has arrived. Titled First Wave Begins, the comic has the pair meet and come to, let’s say, an understanding.

Set just after Doc’s father dies, and early in the career of the Bat-Man, the comic lets the reader see what Brian Azzarello plans to do with the characters. Based on his notes (presented after the comic), Azzarello shows a good understanding of Doc* and his crew. Not to mention a few other pulp characters you might know.

This is it. Doc Savage makes his return to DC Comics, and crashes right into Gotham’s protector, The Batman. Noir mastermind Brian Azzarello teams with artist Phil Noto to present a gritty and shadowy version of the DCU, where thugs are at every corner, corruption runs deep and even the heroes reside in a gray area of morality.

Doc Savage has heard only bad things about The Batman, Gotham’s violent new vigilante, but what can he do to stop him? Check out some more pages from this issue, a vital prologue to the upcoming FIRST WAVE mini-series from Azzarello and artist Rags Morales. – Alex Segura, The Source

* – Even to his understanding that Doc must be “mixed race.” What? You didn’t know?

No, Phillip Jose Farmer didn’t already give us Doc’s birthday. He just looked at a old notebook. He didn’t do the research. On the other hand we did. And we can tell you that Doc’s birthday is….absolutely in this article.
