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.

Red Eye

Red Eye

Creator: Moscow M. Schnecke
Henry Deal
The Nose
The Lear
Miss Adder
The Polecat

            Henry Deal is a rather battered looking private detective by day, but becomes the feared Red Eye at night, his goal to bring down evil-doers.
A strange and terrifying figure appeared on the edge of the lot clad in black tights and shirt, his tie sporting a glowing red eye. The daring masked man swarmed up the shaft of the crane.
This has a bit of a comedy maybe, but is a fun series. Henry Dear is usually bleary-eyed during the day from too much booze, and feels a little like Mike Hammer. But when he becomes Red Eye, he’s all business. The bad guys had evil names that might have been found in Dick Tracy, like The Nose, The Polecat, The Lear, Miss Adder, Brutus, etc.
The series lasted for several issues.
“Red Eye: The Hound Caper” DOUBLE DANGER TALES #26
“Red Eye: The Case of The Purloined Painting” DOUBLE DANGER TALES #30
“The Case of The Gastric Goof-Up” DOUBLE DANGER TALES #37
“The Case of The Querulous Crocodile” DOUBLE DANGER TALES #43
