The Great Pulp Heroes

The Story behind the Original Pulp Fiction Heroes Like Tarzan, The Shadow, Doc Savage and Zorro
















By Don Hutchison. Revised. Book Republic, New York, 2007. Trade sized paperback, 208 pages. Large section of B&W cover images in the center of the book.

While the cover says the book is "revised," nothing tells you what or how much. This is the first edition by Book Republic, and since I do not own a copy of the edition by Mosaic Press, I can't compare them. There are more than a dozen "heroes" discussed, including Captain Future, Operator #5, G-8, The Spider, The Black Bat, and many more.
