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 Tiger

The Tiger

Creator: Steve Mitchell
Alan Corby
Cliff Barker
James Francis Dennis
Harmon Russell

            Alan Corby is tall, with dark hair and blue eyes, and powerfully built. He is president of Corby Aviation Services. He had flown in the World War. While in Burma, he was shot down, but rescued by monks. When he was preparing to depart, he was given five vials containing a potion from an ancient formula called the Blood of The Tiger:

“A strange an savage exaltation coursed through every atom of his being! He felt like a man rising from long slumber – suddenly awake, aware, full of superhuman potencies! Now he comprehended the mysterious words of Than Nu. By the will of the ancient gods, the power of the Tiger had descended upon him! He felt invincible – capable of surmounting any challenge.”

            Cliff Barker had driven bootleg whiskey for the gang during Prohibition and went to prison. Now he drives a truck for Corby enterprises when he comes in contact with The Tiger. Now he is the personal driver of Alan Corby.
            James Francis Dennis is burly and dark haired, with a fighter’s aggressive face. He is the police commissioner.
            Harmon Russell is the police chief.
            There have only been three stories featuring The Tiger, though he may have costarred in other character stories by Steve. There may have even been more data released in the other stories. For this data, I reread the first story from 1995. In it, it is said that he flew with Pagan and Kelt in the World War
The Coils of The Serpent           DOUBLE DANGER TALES #7 & 8
The Hunting Beast          DOUBLE DANGER TALES #28
