DOC SAVAGE: His Apocalytpic Life

Email this review


There's everything you ever wanted to know about Doc Savage, superhero of the pulp supersagas of the '30's and '40's, in this impressively detailed biography by SF writer Farmer who takes his subject seriously without slighting its risible aspects. Doc's devotees already know that henchman Monk has a pet pig named Habeas Corpus but will be enthralled to discover more arcane lore like who Doc's father really was. Nostalgia buffs take note.
