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.

The Blue Scarab

The Blue Scarab

Creator: Steve Mitchell
Garrett Drake
Brett Carter (Drake’s cousin)
Susan Benner (Carter’s fiancé)
Marsha James (Blonde reporter for Crown City Clarion)
Franz Albrecht, a refugee Austrian scientist hiding from Nazis)

When Garrett Drake finished college he returned to Crown City and joined the police department. His father, Detective Captain Michael Drake was gunned down by the notorious Green Mask Ring, and Garrett hunts the killers down as a vigilante wearing a simple mask . Later, Franz Albrecht, a Austrian refugee hiding from Nazis, is rescued by Garrett, the scientist makes him a distinctive and unusual garb to cover him from neck to feet in a substance resembling chain-mail armor. The suit is fashioned from amazing flexible, ultra-light alloy developed by Franz, and he serves as friend and advisor to The Blue Scarab. He’s the only one who knows the Blue Scarab’s identity.
There is only one story so far. Professor William Gregory has invited several people to his home in the country, where he intends to kill them. During WWI, he had been left for dead by his unit as the German soldiers were advancing, but had been taken prisoner, and blamed those who had left him. Only one of them still lived, but their children would pay for their sins. However, unaware that one of his intended victims had invited a friend on the special invitation to a party, The Blue Scarab is also on hand.
