Capt. Hazzard was closely patterned off Street & Smith's Doc Savage character, in an attempt to capitalize on the rival publication's success. Having regained his eyesight after being blind for fifteen years, Hazzard retained the special abilities with which his blindness had endowed him, including the ability to telepathically communicate with his aides. With Washington MacGowen and Jake Cole, Captain Hazzard adventured across the globe, helping those in need. Unfortunately, the magazine series failed to take off and ended after only the one inaugural issue. Captain Hazzard returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
