Doc Savage from the minds of David Avallone and Dave Acosta
“The dynamic duo behind this year’s The Twilight Zone / The Shadow crossover has teamed up with Condé Nast to take on another pulp hero in the four-issue limited comic-book series, Doc Savage: The Ring of Fire! David Avallone (Legenderry: Vampirella) and Dave Acosta (Red Sonja, Vampirella, Swords of Sorrow) are reuniting for four issues of pulp-fueled espionage and intrigue!
Set in 1938, The Ring of Fire delivers thrills aplenty as FDR’s America faces a string of national disasters: beloved aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart is missing, volcanoes are going off under US Navy bases, and villains from the Silver Death’s Heads gang are trying to kill Doc Savage!
“My father, pulp fiction writer Michael Avallone, was the world’s biggest Doc Savage fan, and I grew up with the full set of Bantam paperbacks in the house,” says writer David Avallone. “When Dynamite’s Senior Editor Joseph Rybant asked if I was interested in doing a Doc series, I jumped at the chance. Dave Acosta and I are working hard to deliver a supersaga in the classic Kenneth Robeson/Lester Dent tradition. I can’t wait for people to see it.”
