(REPRINT) The Mask of Doctor Satan, Guest Starring Harry Houdini, Part ONE, Free PDF

One year later, and this is still the most popular feature on my site. I did this one feverish month in Autumn, 2014, in a tailspin of inspriation. Dr. Satan is a Paul Ernst concoction, now in the public domain. I stuck to the spirit of Ernst’s creatioin, but when in a much more “thrill packed” direction. Enjoy. Just 14 pages. Comments and Likes would inspire me to continue the tale. Guest starring Harry Houdini. Click on Link for Free PDF. All text with a few illustrations.

OBERON DESTROYERS Best of 2014 – Robot Hand

 

This was an incidental design sketch for a scene, and it took off. I check my stats carefully, and this is one of my most viewed images. It goes to my ongoing pulp short story, The Mask of Dr. Satan: Die Like a Dog. I just wanted a 1930s style robot, where it was not clear if  it was a man in a suit or a real robot. You be the fair jury.  But Beware the Left Claw!

New Update Very Soon (by Thursday night)

Working title – Die Like a Dog, Part One of Three, from Four Men Against Satan, loosely based on public domain pulp characters from 1936-1941.  Iillustrated short story, lots of illustrations. I plan on releasing it in chapters, 15-20 pages at at time. Total length without illustrations – 50 pages, already carefully plotted out. This is not a nostalgia trip, amateur stream of consciousness, or a story by someone with little knowledge of the year 1938. blood-dripping

This is not a dreamy eyed look at pulp fiction. This is pulp fiction bashing someone’s head in with a tire iron. What if a batman or green hornet had to exist in the world of true crime? This is the story for you. It is very violent. The entire thing is very carefully structured and plotted, and often reads like a police report, a little high on something. True Crime and Fantastic Crime. People will die horribly.

Preview Illustrations due in a few days, definitely by Thursday. Its a busy week!

Here are some of the images that inspire and inform the story, although my new version will be a “Post Tarantino” look at the genre, so please remember, Noir is not shadows, its shadows that represent the slippery nature of moratlity. Crime Fiction with a bizarre edge. Very, very soon!

NEXT UP – BRINGING BACK A GOOD GENRE and DOING IT RIGHT

ITOP SECRET IN DEVELOPEMENT)
I am now developing a original short story/pulp novel of just 50 pages, like pulp stories in Black Mask Magazine and others back in the old days. I have wanted to do this for a few years, but the drawing has taken up all my time.  I am looking for more vehicles for my fiction writing, (and inkers and assistants!). This project will allow me to turn out a lot more volume and fun stories at a better pace.

There will be abundant illustrations, but it will be a bloody inappropriate prose, or text only story with a few squences done in silent comic style. Dashiell Hammet writes the Shadow, something like that. It will mostly detail the adventures of the first group of occult operatives in 1938 including the villains in Meeting of Evil Doers, but back in the day, when they were young and fresh and full of promise.  And lots of fist fights, occult machines,  and gun play. Tarantino in 1938 with weird occult on top. Something like that, LOL.

I could start posting chapters within a few weeks. Check back for more!

If you have any comments or questions, please send an email to wallykhanofmars@yahoo.com
Sadly, I do not have time to egage in extended correspondence (I should be inking Miss Fury!), but I do get a lot from honest comments, especially when people tell me what interests them. I am very interested in my many international visitors. If you want to see Miss Fury or Oberon Destroyers more often, let me know!
