Created by teachers who love teaching with the best children's books every day in their own classrooms! The American comics industry is best known for heroes like Batman, Superman, Spider-Man and the X-Men, but all of our spandex heroes and the comics industry they support were built on the backs of an older pantheon of heroes: the pulp heroes.
Created in 1933 by writer Lester Dent (with input from his editors Henry Ralston and John L.
Doc Savage excelled for years in his own prose magazine in the 30s and 40s, with reprinted book editions in the 60s reviving his fame, but as far as comics go he’s had his trouble. Speaking generally about the previous comic stories and pulp heroes in comics in general, the hardest part of making it work is that you have two goals: one, to create a riveting story and, two, to dust off what to most people might see as a bygone hero.
For a new Doc Savage comic series to work, it has to take back the globe-spanning pulpy vibe that George Lucas and Steven Spielberg stole for Indiana Jones, but do it in such a way that it doesn’t become cliche. Doc Savage on a team book or as a supporting character might be another way of reintroducing him to the current reading audience. Warren Ellis and John Cassaday did such a good alternative take on Doc Savage and the other pulp heroes in Planetary. Also, Tony Harris would kick so much ass on a Doc Savage series it would make your eyes bleed!

Virtually every major publisher from Marvel to DC to Dark Horse has tried and failed to create a flourishing Doc Savage series, but as we’re seeing a renaissance of pulp heroes in comics at Dynamite I think the time is write to call this Doc in for a house call.
Not unlike the problems sometimes faced with Superman, Doc Savage is hard to place in modern times without gentrifying the hero and loosing the original appeal of the story. While I wouldn’t be surprised if that changes in the very near future, Edmondson has a very unique skillset and expertise in this area of writing that could accurately reposition Doc Savage and built a template for a new way to tell his stories. Tris and Four must quickly decide who they can trust as a ruthless battle ignites beyond the walls of Chicago which threatens all of humanity. The Divergent Series Triple Pack, including Divergent, Insurgent and Allegiant plus new special features, is also available now.
Phillips has a well-known love for these characters, it’s just a matter of the right offer, the right schedule and most importantly, the right story. In order to survive, Tris will be forced to make impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love. The Doc Savage pulp stories have a preponderance of riches in terms of villains and vile machinations, and Doc Savage needs to confront those head-on. There has to be a way to translate that into a modern context without going full-on Guantanamo, but it’s a challenge for whoever is tasked to create this story needs to tackle and not dodge.
