Born of the dank and lecherous swamp, with a thirst for the blood of their fellow men, the Black Aces of Doom flew the night skies of war! They flung their hideous challenge to G-8, and the Master Spy accepted, knowing that his life was the prize of the game, that failure would mean only — Death! Like vultures of the night, with their claws made sharper on the grindstone of hate, slaves they were to a greater mind and fierce was their swift attack. One man stood like immovable rock before their bloody goal — that man was G-8, the Master Spy.
Robert J. Hogan penned 110 tales of G-8 and His Battle Aces. With each one, he not only established a fantastical World War, he also created stories that in many ways were the precursors of thriller novels to come decades after the end of the series. With each tale, Hogan crafted monsters and enemies for G-8 and his men to battle that boggled the mind and threatened the world itself with death and destruction, more so with each issue. Hogan also paid attention to the tension and the very threat that G-8 himself was placed in in each novel length adventure. Instead of an unflappable, indestructible hero with all of the answers for any situation, G-8 proved to be, even with his skills and talents, a man who not only failed on occasion before being finally successful, but also risked his own life over and over. Hogan’s stories were fierce and aggressive, allowing readers to truly worry each issue if G-8 would be alive for the next one.
Nick Santa Maria brings G-8, Nippy and Bull to thrilling life in their desperate struggle to defeat a deadly nemesis unlike anything they have ever before encountered in ‘The Black Aces of Doom’. Originally published in the April 1938 issue of G-8 and His Battle Aces magazine.
Nick DeGregorio composed the music for the G-8 and His Battle Aces series of audiobooks.
