DC Comics Co-Publisher, Dan Didio was asked the following question on his Facebook page: “Are the Spirit, Doc Savage and the Avenger still at DC? Will we see them again?” A question many pulp fans have wondered since the less than satisfying First Wave series published by DC Comics in 2011.
Didio responded, “Sorry to say but none of these characters are still at DC but here’s hoping that another publisher gets them back in print soon.”
Okay, New Pulp comic book publishers, start your engines.

Marking a sharp departure from radio’s hard-boiled gumshoes, the 1949 premier of Jack Webb’s Dragnet was a breath of fresh air. No exaggerated characterizations, no purple dialogue, just a dedicated law enforcement officer determined to do his job as completely and as thoroughly as possible. Lt. Joe Friday may have been just another workaday guy trudging thru his daily routine but, in Webb’s hands, the characterization took on a fascinating edge of realism, giving the show a feeling and a mood unlike that of any other radio program of its era. This collection, offering shows from the first and second season of the program’s run, demonstrate just how powerful, just how creative, and just how fascinating radio drama could be when it found itself in the hands and mind of a master. Regular Price $29.98 – Christmas Special priced until December 20th for $14.99 Audio CDs / $7.49 Download.
The Lux Radio Theatre was radio’s most important dramatic hour, commanding the top Hollywood stars, the biggest budgets, and the best writing, directing and sound effects. Cecil B. DeMille, the long-time host, was often shown in publicity photographs as overseeing every aspect of each broadcast, but the reality is that the show’s real directors – Tony Stanford, Frank Woodruff, Fred MacKaye and Earl Ebi – did all of the heavy lifting from week to week, including keeping the stars’ egos in check and making sure everything went off without a hitch. This collection offers six broadcasts of The Lux Radio Theatre, just as originally aired over CBS in 1938 and 1939, transferred directly from C. B. DeMille’s personal recordings and fully restored for outstanding audio fidelity. Regular Price $17.98 – Christmas Special priced until December 20th for $8.99 Audio CDs / $4.49 Download.

In this collection, you’ll enjoy five full hours of his rare and long-lost radio exploits, transferred from the original recordings and made available for the very first time since 1945. It’s a fascinating glimpse into the forgotten history of an American icon whose reputation for patriotism, honesty, healthy living, and clean fighting entertained and inspired American youth.

This radio collection of fully dramatized shows highlights the events of the American Civil War (1861-1865), also know as the War Between the States, as well as the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. As history demonstrates, the outcome forever changed the face of America. The casualties of this war exceeded 620,000 soldiers and untold numbers of injured civilians and soldiers. Confederate resistance collapsed after Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered to Union General Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865.

For many long-time fans, Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce will always personify Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson – but it may come as a surprise to even the most devoted Baker Street enthusiast to discover that, for one radio season, the World’s Greatest Consulting Detective was portrayed by actor Tom Conway, best remembered for playing The Falcon in a series of 1940s films. Now Radio Archives rediscovers these rare programs in this 5-CD set of ten original radio broadcasts featuring Tom Conway and Nigel Bruce, just as originally aired over the ABC Radio Network in 1946. These programs were transferred directly from the original master recordings and have been fully restored for outstanding audio fidelity.

Take $100,000.00 a week, divide it up among some of the brightest stars in entertainment, then add in top-notch writing, a full orchestra and choir conducted by Meredith Willson and hire a sophisticated, deep-voiced leading lady as your hostess and what do you get? One of the most amazing and entertaining variety shows ever to hit the airwaves: The Big Show, starring Tallulah Bankhead. Aired as a Sunday evening extravaganza, NBC literally broke the bank hiring stars for each 90-minute broadcast — and it was, of course, simply too expensive to last. But while it did, it provided impressive entertainment, capturing the majority of the mid-20th century’s top performers at their peak. This set offers the first five programs of The Big Show’s first season, transferred from master recordings and restored for outstanding audio fidelity.

“Here’s adventure! Here’s romance!” O. Henry’s famous “Robin Hood of the Old West” rides again in 20 episodes of the popular series from radio’s golden age. First heard in 1946 with Jack Mather in the title role, along with Harry Lang as his portly sidekick Pancho and, later, Mel Blanc as Pancho’s cousin Porfirio, the series quickly became a staple on local stations nationwide. The premise was simple: often perceived as outlaws, Cisco and Pancho would use this perception to their advantage to right whatever wrongs they came across; by the end of each show, having earned new respect, they would once again hit the trail in search of adventure. Today, The Cisco Kid remains delightful entertainment for all ages, particularly in these sparkling restorations from Radio Archives.

Before James Bond was ever imagined, Jimmy Christopher was the bravest, boldest and best-equipped secret agent any nation ever had!
From out of the pages of Operator #5 magazine steps a dramatic hero who pits himself against threats to national security from all origins. Whether it’s subversive internal menace, or a full-scale invasion from an enemy land, James Christopher stood ready and resolute to defeat it.
In 1934, with Hitler consolidating power in Germany and the Japanese Empire on the rise in Asia, young pulp publisher Harry Steeger decided that the American public was ready for a magazine chronicling the exploits of an undercover agent dedicated to defending the United States from foreign aggressors. With his editors, Steeger came up with a title, Secret Service Operator #5, and a cover depicting a masked terrorist fleeing an exploding White House. Over this loomed the resourceful hero, blazing away with a .45 automatic. His job: to defeat a new invasion of the United States—every month!
James Christopher did not technically belong to the U. S. Secret Service. He was a top agent for an America’s unnamed Intelligence Service. It was in his blood. His father, John Christopher, retired from the same agency years before. Answerable only to his superior, Z-7, and carrying a letter from the President of the United States identifying him as Operator #5, Jimmy Christopher played for keeps. He carried a rapier sewn into his belt, and in a golden skull hanging from his watch-chain was a reservoir of poison to be taken in the event of capture.
Aided by a small group of trusted assistants, ranging from his twin sister Nan to scrappy street urchin Tim Donovan, Jimmy Christopher was a one-man defense force. Proud and patriotic, expert marksman and swordsman, he was the best America has to offer in a time of severe trial.
Originally written by master pulpsmith Frederick C. Davis, the Operator #5 series was a clear forerunner of the spy and espionage genre, which exploded in the 1960s when President John F. Kennedy happened remark that he enjoyed reading Ian Fleming’s James Bond novels. The first Bond film, Dr. No, was released in 1962. Soon, America was surrounded by spies. The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Our Man Flint, and Nick Carter, Killmaster were just a few of the most prolific. Jimmy Christopher was on the job a generation before them all, blazing the espionage trail, and keeping America safe from fascism and other wicked isms.
Unseen, impregnable, the strange war engine of a foreign power hovered over America, waiting the fatal moment to hurl death upon a thousand cities and towns. Foredoomed to destruction and desolation before the ravaging hordes of the Yellow Empire, bleak despair gripped the nation’s millions. And then men held their breath in agonizing hope — as Operator 5, single-handed, seized the last grim chance to save the United States!
Into this unprecedented crisis plunged Jimmy Christopher. Only one man, but a man who embodied the American spirit—and stands prepared to perish to protect his country.
This Total Pulp Experience audiobook contains all three stories from the second issue issue of Operator #5 Magazine, May 1934. Read by Richard Epcar. 6 hours. $23.98 Audio CDs / $11.99 Download.

First victim of that incredibly horrible fate, death by the Red Hand, was Laskar, the Spider’s trusted agent in the underworld. Ben Laskar’s dying gasp warned Richard Wentworth — too late! For even as his loyal ally fell, a cunning trap closed swiftly on Wentworth and held him fast — branded a cop-killer, handcuffed, guarded while a new terror tortured the city. Killing and looting, the criminal hordes of the Red Hand — maddened by blood and wealth — extended their criminal reign over the entire city. Then the blood-red fist closed again to grip Nita van Sloan… How could Wentworth, even with the Spider’s guile, pierce that double cordon of grim-faced, trigger-tense police and ruthless assassins — to reach and slay the mystery man who wore the gory glove?Total Pulp Experience. These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook and features every story, every editorial, and every column of the original pulp magazine.
Death leaped from those chattering tommy-guns, scattering New York’s jurymen like broken, bloodied dolls — when the Scarred Hand ordained that all felons be freed and Justice thrown into the discard. Judges, district attorneys, mayors faced annihilation by that cyclonic upheaval, and none knew safety while its chill wind swept the streets of great cities. What unbelievable force directed this ruthless assault upon Law and Order and announced that not even one criminal should be convicted? Deep down in that maelstrom of chaos and anarchy — where was that incredible, baleful secret spring? The police were powerless, all authority at an end, and Civilization, itself, cried brokenly for a savior. Richard Wentworth, alone, heeded that agonized call and, in the murky light of a secret den, he was transforming himself into the Spider — to wage battle against that brain which must be killed twice!Total Pulp Experience. These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook and features every story, every editorial, and every column of the original pulp magazine. As a special bonus, Will Murray has written an introduction especially for this series of eBooks.
New England had fallen to the invaders without resistance, and the rest of America was stripped of defenses, trembling at the advance of the godless, soulless ravagers. Jimmy Christopher — known in the Secret Service only as Operator 5 — was ridiculed to scorn by strong-headed, short-sighted authorities, handicapped senselessly by them in his struggle to save our nation. With Tim Donovan a tortured captive, with Diane Elliot doubting her own loyalty, with the United States apparently doomed, Operator 5 wagers his life in an almost hopeless one-man counter-attack!Total Pulp Experience. These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook and features every story, every editorial, and every column of the original pulp magazine. As a special bonus, Will Murray has written an introduction especially for this series of eBooks.
In 1934 a new type of magazine was born. Known by various names — the shudder pulps, mystery-terror magazines, horror-terror magazines — weird menace is the sub-genre term that has survived today. Terror Tales magazine was one of the most popular. It came from Popular Publications, whose publisher Harry Steeger was inspired by the Grand Guignol theater of Paris. This breed of pulp story survived less than ten years, but in that time, they became infamous, even to this day. This ebook contains a collection of stories from the pages of Terror Tales magazine, all written by G T Fleming-Roberts, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
Three sinister slay-rides turned a giant metropolis into a city patrolled by terror… helpless, save for one man — the fabulous Master of Midnight, whose strange cloak of invisibility was, at the same time, a gift of the gods — and a curse of the Devil!

The Doc Savage exploit that went untold for 74 years—Death’s Dark Domain!
In the aftermath of the evil John Sunlight’s pillaging of the secret Fortress of Solitude, a dreadful super-weapon has fallen the hands of a Balkan dictator intent upon seizing control of the vampire-haunted zone of desolation known as Ultra-Stygia. War is imminent. Monsters are loose in the disputed region. A strange darkness falls over the sinister landscape. Only Doc Savage, the Man of Bronze, understands the terrible threat to humanity. And only he can prevent the terror from spreading…
There are unknown Things prowling the darkest patch of land on the planet. Haunted by creatures that might have emerged from the Hell’s lowest regions, ancient Ultra-Stygia has turned into a cauldron of conflict between rival countries. Monster bats careen through the night sky. Invisible Cyclopes patrol the scorched battleground. And a power beyond understanding robs men of their vision.
Can the 20th century’s premier scientist and superman untangle this Gordian knot of carnage before neighboring nations are drawn into an apocalyptic new world war? Or will the Man of Bronze succumb to an unstoppable power he himself has unleashed upon mankind?
From the frozen Arctic to the war-torn Balkans, Doc Savage and his fighting five follow a winding trail of terror to a blood-freezing climax.

It took 100 years to bring Edgar Rice Burroughs’ John Carter of Mars to the big screen. It took Disney Studios just ten days to declare the film a flop and lock it away in the Disney vaults. How did this project, despite its quarter-billion dollar budget, the brilliance of director Andrew Stanton, and the creative talents of legendary Pixar Studios, become a calamity of historic proportions? Michael Sellers, a filmmaker and Hollywood insider himself, saw the disaster approaching and fought to save the project – but without success. In John Carter and the Gods of Hollywood, Sellers details every blunder and betrayal that led to the doom of the motion picture – and that left countless Hollywood careers in the wreckage. JOHN CARTER AND THE GODS OF HOLLYWOOD examines every aspect of Andrew Stanton’s adaptation and Disney’s marketing campaign and seeks to answer the question: What went wrong? it includes a history of Hollywood’s 100 year effort to bring the film to the screen, and examines the global fan movement spawned by the film.
John Carter and the Gods of Hollywood is now available at Amazon.

Modesty Blaise has been called the female James Bond but she’s much more interesting than that. With her expertise in martial arts and unusual weapons, the ability to speak several languages and her liking for fast cars, twenty-something Modesty became a female icon long before the likes of Emma Peel, Lara Croft, or Buffy.
In Stef Penney’s brand new radio adaptation of Peter O’Donnell’s novel, Sir Gerald Tarrant, Head of a secret British agency, tempts Modesty out of retirement and into a job involving a young woman with extra sensory powers, an exotic desert location, and a larger than life public school villain, intent on murdering his way to a vast fortune. With its perfect cocktail of glamorous settings, hidden treasure, a twisting turning plot, and characters to root for, A Taste for Death is an action packed treat – and a guilty pleasure.
With an original score by Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory, arranged by Ian Gardiner, and performed by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, conducted by Ben Foster.
Produced and Directed by Kate McAll
