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.

Champion of Justice and Freedom

Champion of Justice and Freedom

Creator: Wayne Greenough
Tate Twilliger
Nickels O’Brian (Mountain)

            Tate Twilliger is in the 7th Grade. He has watched all the old Republic serials with Grandpa, and wants to be a hero. Taking on the guise of Champion of Justice, at first he merely wears an old Army helmet, but everyone knows who he is, so soon he dumps the relic.
            Nickels O’Brian is big and dumb, and the school bully. When Tate sees him bullying the beautiful Priscilla, he puts on the helmet and becomes Champion of Justice and goes to her rescue. When O’Brian pushes him down, Tate’s leg comes up connecting with the Mountain’s knee and sends O’Brian to the floor in tears.
            “My hero!” Pricilla says, kissing Tate on the cheek.
            Priscilla is super gorgeous with long blond hair, and flashing green eyes.
            Nickels O’Brian is a mountain of a boy, thus his nickname; but he wants people to like him, and joins Tate as Freedom. Now they are a super team, but every time they go to the rescue, it seems to backfire, and they are the ones who get in trouble.
            These are new pulp heroes for ages 7 to 14. One story has been published, but more are planned. This story was written in something of a 12-chapter cliffhanger, like the old Republic serials.
