books | doc savage

Seeing BOOKWORM in the Vancouver Fringe made me look again at the books that fill our home, and when a buddy who's writing graphic novels mentioned Doc Savage, I spent a little time visiting these old friends.

Ideal Library edition (1934)

 Bantam Books (1964)

 Golden Press (1975)

DC Comics (1989)

Nostalgia Ventures (2008)
reprint of original pulp edition (1933)

Let me strive, every moment of my life, to make myself better and better, to the best of my ability, 
that all may profit by it. Let me think of the right, and lend all my assistance to those who need it, 
with no regard for anything but justice. Let me take what comes with a smile, without loss of courage. Let me be considerate of my country, of my fellow citizens and my associates 
in everything I say and do. Let me do right to all, and wrong to no man.
