Street & Smith's Doc Savage Covers

I've talked about my interest in Doc Savage elsewhere. When I first encountered him, it was in the James Bama ripped-shirt-and-skull-cap era. The reprints I've been devouring lately retain the old 1930s-40s Street & Smith covers, and I love 'em. I don't judge a book by its cover, but a great cover enhances my enjoyment of it. Here's some of my favorites that are either iconic Doc poses or that just scream "pulp adventure!" There's also a rare cover that didn't feature Doc himself: his teammates Monk and Ham getting squashed in "The Crimson Serpent." Enjoy!

  1. I look them over, liked the pictures of the comic books or sorts. Mine were always of Porkey Pig or Bugs Bunny.
