From the Inside Flap:

After the financial Stock Market crash of '29, the reading public was discouraged with the Roaring Twenties, and the popularization of the American gangster. They were looking for heroes, and the popular media of the day, the pulp magazines, gave them that change.In 1931, The Shadow hit the stands and was an instant success. In 1932, The Phantom Detective followed from another publishing house. By 1933, the market place was flooded with pulp super heroes: The Spider, G-8, Doc Savage, and others. Most wore some weird costume, laughed eerily, or sported a domino mask. Most were copies of The Shadow. They were all a lot of fun.The pulp heroes lasted until the early 1950's, The Phantom Detective being the last hold out, ending in 1953. Unfortunately, by then comic books had taken over the super hero, and television was fast becoming the mass media of the day. The readers discovered that there were no costumed super heroes in the war, and the trend was moving towards the anti-hero. It brought an end to those glorious costumed heroes of the Thirties.But they've been reborn! Within these pages you'll meet Doc Atlas and his amazing crew, the Tarantula, the Grey Monk, the Black Bat and many more. So brush off your fedora and settle in for some fun.
