Doc Savage: Empire of Doom
Doc Savage & The Shadow vs. Shiwan Khan
by Will Murray and Lester Dent, writing as Kenneth Robeson, cover illustration by Joe DeVito
It began with the hijacking of a destroyer from the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The stolen warship struck midtown Manhattan with her mighty guns, then vanished far out to sea.
Who were the strange raiders wearing the golden uniforms of no known power who pulled off the daring theft? And who was their mysterious leader, a being of seemingly supernatural abilities?
Doc Savage did not know. But The Shadow did! Combining forces, the Man of Bronze and the Dark Avenger follow the trail of a superfoe from The Shadow’s past.
But can they learn to trust one another?
From fog-shrouded New York to a futuristic underground kingdom in the heart of Asia, the battle sprawls—with the world’s fate at stake!
About the Series
Doc Savage was the most successful pulp adventure hero of his time. From 1933 to 1949, Lester Dent and other writers penned 182 original exploits of the Man of Bronze and his iron-fisted friends, writing as Kenneth Robeson.
Scientist. Surgeon. Strongman. Superman. Doc Savage was a man without equals. He operated on a global stage, fighting supercrime, discovering lost cities, stopping wars, and uplifting a troubled mankind during the depths of the Great Depression.
Now, in these difficult times, Doc returns in a new series of untold exploits conceived by his originator and brought to life by Lester Dent's natural successor, Will Murray.
The Wild Adventures of Doc Savage is no updating or reimagining of a classic character. This is the authentic Man of Bronze in his own era, taking on new challenges and conquering a new generation of foes and fans.
Doc Savage is back. For real.
