Doc Savage and Friends by scottygod Doc Savage and Friends by scottygod
I just finished reading my first Doc Savage novel, Man of Bronze, and thought I would do up some mugshots in the tradition of my good friend *DocShaner. Glad you approve, Doc!

Adventurers are Doc, Ham, Monk, Renny, Long Tom, and Johnny.

I am a long time Doc Savage fan and these are great. Johnny's monocle is missing though.

You're DEFINITELY channeling BOTH Docs here...Savage and Schaner! VERY COOL! Like your interpretation of Monk too.

This is really good. It looks like how the characters might be
done for animated series.
Doc Savage is awesome and I highly reccomend the stories.

I liked reading Doc Savage as a teenager.He wasn't handed superpowers by being from another planet or being exposed to radiation(which in the real world would just make you sick and die)He was just a self made man and represented human potential,which is what made him interesting.

I always thought Monk looked like an ape. That's how he's described.

Where did you get a copy of the book? I checked my local Borders tonight but they didn't have it. I have alos checked online and get the "out of stock" bit.

We've got a chain of used bookstores here in Phoenix and sometimes I'm fortunate to find some really cool stuff. A couple of years ago I found an original animation cell from the first TMNT cartoon for $10! A friend of mine found Man of Bronze, The Living Shadow, and Justice, Inc. - the first Doc Savage, The Shadow, and The Avenger novels, respectively - that he ended up giving to me. I also have 3 Doc Savage ebooks which I can email to you if you want. I also have some Avenger, The Shadow, and The Spider ebooks. If anyone wants the PDF's, just let me know. ebooks can be a bummer to read, but they're just text so they look fine when printed out.

I appreciate the ebooks offer, but have never been able to sit at the computer and read for long periods of time. Guess I am too old and like to have a book that I can take with me.

I will just have to dig around some more. What did you think of the Doc Savage book? I've never read any of them.

I have to print them out to read them. But even that's not the same. You can find them on eBay, usually in lots of 6+ books.

I liked it. It's certainly a style of storytelling that you just don't see anymore. In some places it's apparent that Dent had a word count quota to meet. And there's a cliffhanger about every 10 pages. It's super compressed storytelling - the plot moves 100 mph. Dent doesn't give a lot of back story or dwell on character moments. It's good guys beating up bad guys with a heaping dose of deus ex machina, courtesy of Doc's vast knowledge and physical training. If you're a big fan of Brian Bendis' talking heads and snail pacing, this surely isn't your scene.

Monk really needs to look much more ape-like. Otherwise, very nice!

Thanks, Dave! Dent didn't give a specific physcial description for anyone other than Ham being "waspy", Monk being "simian" and covered in "red fur", Renny being "giant", Long Tom being "sickly", and I don't remember Johnny's appearance being mentioned at all.
