This Site is for essays on The New Pulp Heroes. It’s about time we catalog new characters appearing in books and anthologies. Since I do not have time to read everything being published, I will offer space here for legitimate creators of new pulp characters to send me their data, and I will post their essays. It is not my place to say what is, or what is not a new pulp hero, and the only changes I will make to essays will be editing and format. If you wish, include a jpeg of a book cover or b&w illustration if you have permission from the artist. By sending me your essays, you are giving me permission to promote and showcase this data. Essays should be up to 500 words, and include information on MC and back up characters, creator, title of books, and where the stories can be found. A paperback edition is now available for $12.00, plus $3.99 postage (US). The book will only be sold through us: Tom Johnson, 204 W. Custer St., Seymour, TX 76380.

Atlas is big, blonde, and has yellow - or amber - eyes. He will kill when necessary, but does show some emotion. He is also a doctor, scientist and inventor, and explores foreign locales with his girlfriend and aides.
Doc Atlas and his associates are World War II veterans and so far all the adventures are set in post-WWII. He has two assistants, plus a girlfriend.  One assistant is a lawyer named “Ace” Assante, a former captain in the Army Air Force and bomber pilot. “Mad Dog” Deagan is a former lieutenant colonel and built along the lines of Monk from Doc Savage. His girlfriend is a reporter named Penelope Cartier, who writes up his adventures under a pseudonym and sells them to the pulp magazines.
Doc also has several secretaries running his office, which are targets of Mad Dog’s numerous advances.
