Purple Aces... sounds like a story about vatican bishops who are in fact kung fu masters.
I had some of these way back then and received #4, BOMBS FROM THE MURDER WOLVES, in the mail yesterday.
You should write that story, Deka. Sounds like a winner.And "Bombs from the Murder Wolves." You just don't see titles like that anymore. I'm planning to post #s 4 thru 8, the non-Sterankos, sometime soon.
I only have a few of this series. Once again, it seems that these books weren't distributed widely in this area way back when.
Maybe i do, Evan, maybe i do ;)
Almost forgot: That's te good thing about pulp: Some titles put yur imaginaton in raging flames.
wow, cool. Especially like that second one.
Wow, I was not familiar with these. It might be worthwhile to check them out because I love WWI flying aces. :)
Adventure House has been reprinting this series, in gorgeous facsimile, for several years. Check them out right here:http://adventurehouse.com/contents/en-us/d11.html
I remember the first time I ever heard of G-8 was in Steranko's HISTORY OF COMICS. I was a big fan of the DOC SAVAGE paperbacks. I think I tried to read one of these though and found them pretty unreadable.
Steranko's History was my introduction to G-8 too. Hogan was no Lester Dent, it's true, but I reread a few of these several years ago in the new Adventure House editions and found them a nice change of pace from other hero pulp novels. The weird menaces G-8 and the gang face are pretty standard fare, but the WWI setting was a plus.
I remember them coming out but never read or bought any. I think I was in my comic book phase then.
