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 Visage

The Visage
Creator: Sean Danowski
Nicholas “Nick” Dane
Jerry Maxion
Edward “Jazz” Bartler
Earl Wayford
Vladimir - Vlad

Nicholas “Nick” Dane had gone off to war as a young boy, but returned a man – changed! Thirty, dark-featured with dark eyes. He brought forth black gloves that he slipped over his hands. From another pocket he produced a white cloth mask that he slipped over his face. Save for twin slits for the eyes, the mask covered his face totally. Then taking his gray fedora he donned that as well. Two automatics rested in shoulder holsters beneath his coat.
Blonde-headed Jerry Maxion was a former Federal agent turned detective, whom The Visage had saved from a frame up years before. The small agency Jerry ran in Lower Manhattan was merely a front, for he was an agent of The Visage.
Edward “Jazz” Bartler is all bulk, everything about him suggested squares, from his compact build to his chiseled jaw and wide shoulders. A former jazz cornetist in Kansas City speakeasy bands, ex Chicago gangster, one-time member of the Capone mob, and now an agent of The Visage.
Earl Wayford is a broker for the wealthy. His office is on the fourteenth floor of the Luthridge Building just off Wall Street in the financial district. He is the third agent of The Visage.
Dane lives in the penthouse apartment of the left tower of the Zaggurat Towers. Black and gold trim, the twin towers were almost invisible in the night sky.
Vladimir - Vlad, is Dane’s faithful old Russian manservant. He had been with the Dane family for several generations.
