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 Moon Girl

The Moon Girl

Creator: Steve Mitchell
Anne Darvell
The Tiger

            Anne Darvell is a lovely dark haired woman in her early twenties. When her parents died they left her and her brother well off. It was the 1940s and young men were fighting in World War II. She was in love with an Army bomber pilot, and wanted to do something at home to help. She married John Rawlings after the war in 1946.
            The Moon Girl wears a knee-length, sleeveless tunic of white. A strip of white cloth is tied around her head at eye level, obscuring her features. On her finger is heavy silver ring, set with an opalescent, pearly blue stone. She felt the power of night touch her, a gentle, familiar caress
            Although only one story is listed in my records, the Moon Girl may have appeared in stories featuring other heroes. She is said to have fought beside The Tiger, so my records may not be complete.
