Description
 
The Avenger
Volume 1

The Pulp Era's most intriguing superhero returns in his first two epic adventures by Paul Ernst, writing as Kenneth Robeson. First, a devastating personal tragedy forges adventurer Richard Henry Benson into a "Man of Steel", leading him to assemble the crime-fighting team called "Justice, Inc." Then, murder sets The Avenger on the trail of "The Yellow Horde", the secret treasure of the Aztecs. This instant collector's item showcases H. W. Scott's classic pulp covers and reprints all the original interior illustrations by Paul Orban. Pulp historian Will Murray provides commentary, revealing how The Shadow's Walter Gibson and Doc Savage's Lester Dent helped develop The Avenger, a character who also appeared in Street & Smith and DC comics.

Riviting March 26, 2013
Reviewer: James D. from IDAHO FALLS, ID United States  
I was familiar with the Avenger from listening to some old time radio or reading his comic book adventures. But this was the first time I had read his original stories. I was very, very surprised. Richard Benson--the Avenger--is a very sympathetic character, perhaps the most from any pulp character I've read. I felt the sway of emotions and I'm still thinking about his own personal heartbreak. This is a precious gem of a character. The action and mystery are very well done. I cannot wait to read more from the Avenger!
