These days, crossover between properties is a commonplace affair, with The Shadow meeting The Green Hornet, Captain Action being mentored by Operator Number 5, and the quintessential example of the Punisher’s visit to Riverdale. Back in the day, though, this kind of meeting was something much more rare, but no less interesting… Your Major Spoilers (retro) review awaits!
This week, Stephen had a chance to sit down with Chris Roberson to talk Doc Savage. The writer has recently been tapped to write an eight issue mini-series for Dynamite Entertainment.

Dynamite is proud to announce signing a new agreement with Condé Nast that will bring back the legendary man of action Clark Savage Jr. in an all-new Doc Savage comic book series scheduled to debut in December 2013. The second project developed as part of their licensing partnership with Condé Nast, the new Doc Savage follows on the heels of their top-selling comic book series, The Shadow, and its related spin-off titles. Chris Roberson, acclaimed comic book writer of Masks and iZombie, joins talented artist Bilquis Evely as the contributing creators. The first issue will feature a cover by superstar painter Alex Ross (Kingdom Come, Marvels, Masks), with special variant cover editions also provided by John Cassaday (Astonishing X-Men, Uncanny Avengers) and Stephen Segovia (X-Treme X-Men).
I’ve seen the rumors circulating around the web that Iron Man 3 director, Shane Black, is eying Doc Savage as his next film, and I’m not sure how to feel about that.
In the late 1960s and early 70s, few actors stood as tall in their heroic roles as Ron Ely.
From television’s Tarzan to the big screen’s Doc Savage: The Man of Bronze, Ely’s 6-foot-4-inch muscular frame made the scenery cower when he stepped before a camera.
The 74-year-old actor stands just as tall today, commanding audiences with his tales of those golden days of pulp fiction on film. Warner Archive Collection has brought Ely’s best-loved roles back into the spotlight, making the classic titles available on DVD and through its new live-streaming service, Warner Archive Instant.
I have a lot of action figures – a whole room full of figures still carded, loose in boxes, and in various poses around the Nerd Room of Doom, but come 2013, they will all bow before the might that is Doc Savage.
Fans of the classic pulp character Doc Savage will want to get on this before this statue sells out. Electric Tiki and Sideshow Collectibles have teamed for a giant polystone collector’s statue that stands 12-inches high.
DC’s First Wave mini-series is over, but that doesn’t mean the company can’t go back to the well to see what is going on with Batman, Doc Savage, and The Avenger.
DC Comics has announced that J.G. Jones has been tapped to write the next Doc Savage arc that kicks off in Doc Savage #13.
The first part of J.G.’s globe-trotting adventure kicks off in the Egyptian wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and spans all the way to Cairo, which gives him the perfect excuse to give us this painting of DOC SAVAGE fighting a mummy.
I really hope Jones nails the character and feel of Doc and crew, because I’m just on the verge of dropping the series.
The latest installment of First Wave arrives today from DC Comics, and we’ve got a sneak peek to give you a hint of things to come.
No, DC Entertainment hasn’t cancelled the First Wave series (yet) as the long awaited third issue arrives with a gun toting Dark Knight featured as the character of the month.
