Doc Savage, The Spook Legion

The release of John Carter, the new epic blockbuster based on the Mars novels of Edgar Rice Burroughs, has got me fondly remembering some of the other pulp fiction of my youth.

For instance, I used to love the Doc Savage books, not least of all for the James Bama covers – like this one, for The Spook Legion.

I think I might’ve even read this one (there were dozens) – darned if I can remember a thing about it.

    Haha, reminds me of the covers shown at the beginning of Gentlemen Broncos.

    Ever seen it?

    Thanks for sharing.

      Yeah… I thought I was the only one! Great idea for a movie, kind of turned out so-so I thought. What did you think?

        You know, I can completely understand why people felt underwhelmed by it, especially since it was from the same director of Napoleon Dynamite.

        The movie speaks to me on a whole other level since I’m an aspiring writer like the main character. It’s supposed to be a comedy of sorts, and I did find myself laughing at the strange situations the wooden characters found themselves in, but in the end, I couldn’t help but admire the kid for writing his heart out and sticking to his craft.
