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 Hood

The Hood

Creator: Wayne Greenbaugh
Thanet Blake (P.I.)
Capt. Sebastian Holt (Police)
Dr. Gannon (Medic)
Jake Slippery (Shyster Lawyer)
Aphrodite Morgano (ex-girlfriend)
Starla Smith (current girlfriend)
Isis Jones (weird woman)

Who is the hooded person the city knows as The Hood? All that’s known is the vigilante appeared after the death of a policeman rumored to be on the take. The Hood wears all black, including a hood. Blue eyes are all that’s visible. 6-foot, slim build, moves with feline grace, uses martial arts to take out four men at once.
Captain Sebastian Holt, the head detective, wants the vigilante brought to justice, and hires private detective Thanet Blake to use his underworld connections to discover The Hood’s identity.
Rumpatt is an old friend of Blake’s. A Vietnam veteran, he married Lotus before the war ended and they were separated. He’s trying to bring her over now. A bit weird, he dresses like Flash Gordon, and watches Saturday Matinee serials.
Isis Jones lives in the apartment next to Blake’s office, and owns the building. She has a shooting range in her room where she target practices with two .38 revolvers on targets attached to hay bails. She goes out at all hours of the night.
Starla Smith is Blake’s current flame, but they break up in this story.
Aphrodite Morgano was Blake’s girlfriend two decades previous when he was 18 and she was 24. Now she may be back.
Although Thanet Blake has been in many stories to-date, there has only been one story featuring The Hood (or Hooded Person).
