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.

Creators: Flint Dille & Dave Marconi
The Agent
Benny the Eye

The Brotherhood is a highly secretive organization formed by remnants of the legendary lost civilization of Lemuria. It had once been an advanced civilization in the prehistoric age of mankind, but was destroyed by ravaging horde of primitive barbarians. The survivors who escaped established a hidden base whereby they dedicated themselves to preserving their advanced knowledge, keeping their existence a secret from the world, but maintaining a network of agents working surreptitiously amongst the rulers.
The Brotherhood kept an eye on the development of the world, intervening through indirect and subtle means to guide the course of history, and when they judged the time was ready, gradually release bits of knowledge, such as specific scientific breakthroughs, to the world.
Itsu, known as the Hand Sinister, one of the paramount leaders, seized full control of the Brotherhood, and began using it as a tool to dominate the world. Its agents acted to infiltrate the major governments of the world and set the world on a path towards globally destructive war, which would give them the opportunity to become its master.
In 1907, a gifted boy is kidnapped and brought to the secret headquarters of The Shrine. His past memories were erased and he was given the code name Agent 13. Trained as an assassin he becomes an agent in clandestine operations. He was becoming their best disciple and would have risen high in the ranks of the Brotherhood, until he discovered its true nature. Fleeing, he was hunted by agents sent by the Brotherhood and began a deadly cat-and-mouse contest against the organization. He survived their attacks long enough to fight back, having formed his own group of allies to provide him with support. He is dedicated to fighting against the plans of the Brotherhood.
         Benny the Eye is usually deployed for assignments to tail targets.
         China White is one of the Brotherhood's top members, trained to seduce, and is The Agent's lover.
         Maggie Darr is the beautiful operative closest to Agent 13.
         Ray Furnow is an Asian with an endless number of wives and children to deploy as human resources for Agent 13.
         There have been three novels in the series so far, as well as two Graphic Novels illustrating the books.
