Statues of the DOC SAVAGE Museum!


I came across a Doc statue the other day, and did a little googling to see what else was out there. I didn't try to keep track of who made them, or when, or what they're worth now. All I know for sure is I'm glad I don't want them, because I couldn't afford them - and if I could I'd have no place to put them.

It's interesting to note that ALL, except for the Ron Ely job, are based on the Bantam/Bama image of Doc. Why no Baumhofers? Sure, this is the Doc most of us first met, and the one still romping around in comic books, but I no longer see him that way, and I suspect there are others of like minds.

LADY LUCK vs. the Electric Chair! (1940)


When Will Eisner's Spirit Section debuted in newspapers back on June 2, 1940, it included two other strips - Lady Luck, drawn by Chuck Mazoujian, and Mr. Mystic, drawn by Bob Powell. This entry from June 30 (the earliest on comicbookplus) is the fourth appearance of Lady Luck. The scripting on this one, near as I can tell, is by Dick French. Thanks to dsdaboss for scanning it.
