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 Armadillo

The Armadillo

Creator: Gerald W. Page
The Armadillo
Scarlet Marmoset

            He was wearing his black suit, his black cloak flying behind him as he swung by the window on the rope; the familiar steel mask with the ears poking up above the brim of the slouch hat, the determined snout sticking out.
            Lefty is Armadillo’s sidekick.
            Jane in the police detective.
            Lisa is the reporter.
            The villains in the one story I read are The Scarlet Marmoset, Florabella, and Darryl.
            The character of The Armadillo was created back in 1956 or ’57, and has appeared in Grue, Mike Shayne Mystery Magazine, Spicy Armadillo Stories, and anthologies like “When The Black Lotus Blooms”. I don’t have any other data on the series. It was written as humorous homage to the pulp heroes.
