  1. Doc Fate! from DC's The Multiversity: Society of Super-heroes. (2014) Doc Fate is a mashup of Doc Savage and Doctor Fate, who forms the Society of Super-heroes to repel the Conquerors from the Counter Earth. Lots of pulpy goodness here, scripted by Grant Morrison and drawn by Chris Sprouse. Powers and skills: Drawing from Doc Savage and Doctor Fate, Doc Fate could have just about skill, and plenty of spells, but I tried to list only what was shown in one short comic. Like, we know Doc Fate has low blow because he kicks Felix Faust in the junk: also he likes to carry two guns, so I gave him ambidextrous. He is an actual medical doctor, and can cast a spell to open a portal, allowing him to teleport over an unspecified distance: He does seem to know a few other spells, but it isn't really clear what the effects are. Also, I did not include his bases that are briefly shown, his windowless black skyscraper in manhattan - mixing Doc's office in the Empire State building the Fate's tower in Arkham. Doc Fate also has an 'Impregnable Fortress' somewhere that resembles a meso-american pyramid, moving the Fortress of Solitude to Central America perhaps? Disads: "I'm aware of my reputation as a devil worshipper in some quarters..." Seems awfully specific, but okay. Also, he is being hunted by the forces of Vandal Savage in the last half of the story.

  2. https://www.radioarchives.com/Bargain_Basement_s/178.htm I'm eyeing the Doc Savage lot https://www.radioarchives.com/Doc_Savage_Bargain_Pack_p/5003.htm Been meaning to read Land of Always Night and Repel for a while now.
  3. Not 'reading' per say, but I've been working my way through Clark Ashton Smith's oeuvre in audio form on youtube. Some of the narrators are better than others, but you can't beat the price. Some examples: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RdGscVDaxZk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=obbgTkWgGbM To get the most out of his stuff, you'd probably want to google the contents of his different story collections (Zothique, Hyperborea, ...) and organize your listening that way. Also lots of REH on youtube as well, but haven't gotten around to those just yet.
  4. Just finished re-reading Grant Morrison's Society of Superheroes: http://www.dccomics.com/comics/the-multiversity-2014/the-multiversity-the-society-of-super-heroes-conquerors-of-the-counter Featuring a Doctor Fate / Doc Savage mash-up as one of the main characters! Filled with the requisite pulpy action!! Go read it now!!! If you're into that sort of thing... Dark Horse is also publishing a Grendel vs The Shadow mini series which looks interesting, but will withhold judgement until i can read all the issues.
