Doc Savage, The Man of Bronze

Doc Savage was a popular pulp fiction character created in the early 1930’s by Street & Smith publications. ThePulp.Net reports that the character was created to capitalize on the success of The Shadow, which launched two years prior to Doc Savage Magazine.  All of the stories were published as authored by Kenneth Robeson, who is now widely known to be Lester Dent, a giant among pulp writers, credited with bringing the character and his gang of fellow crime fighters to life as he wrote the vast majority of the novels himself.  The magazine lasted from 1933 to 1949, compiling over 180 Doc Savage adventures. Bantam republished many of the adventures as mass market paperbacks, starting in the 1960s.
