Illustrations in black+white, and an authentic layout only add to the nostalgic atmosphere of the writing - in the style of Sax Rohmer meets Sherlock Holmes and Batman.... can't go wrong!
Trained since childhood to superhuman intelligence and strength, Doc Savage and his five
followers, all WW1 Veterans, go around battling bad guys of all types.
Here, we see the Man of Bronze's first adventure, investigating the murder of his father that will lead him to a lost civilisation, and then battling dinosaurs on a remote island ruled by the mysterious madman, Kar.
If you love adventure, you'll have a ride!

Published in the late 1930's, the character Doc Savage provided a model of perfect citizenry for a nation and for a world teetering on a world war. Reading the overwrought descriptions of Doc's physical prowess and intellectual might can cause involuntary eye rolling, but keep in mind the time and conditions prevailing from which this book came and you'll understand the complete lack of irony in the accounting of Doc's thoughts and actions. Now, like back then, just relax and enjoy a fun, fantastical read. And, after all, what's so bad about being a model citizen anyway?
