Collected for the first time: the original Masked Rider series! Originally published by Ranger Publications, Altus Press has committed to collecting all the rare and illusive Masked Rider yarns from these early years prior to its acquisition by Standard Publications. Each volume will include articles and information about the series and its publisher, Ranger Publications, one of the earliest companies run by Timely and Marvel Comics founder Martin Goodman.
Volume 3 contains the next three stories, uncut, in order, and accompanied by the original illustrations: “Outlaws of the Moccasins” and “Brand of the Quanahy Clan” by George A. Starbird, and “The Devil’s Henchmen” by William H. Stueber & Lincoln Hoffman. Includes an all-new introduction by James Reasoner.
Laughing Death is a story of gunfire and airships, of love and revenge. Sanford Greer (S.G.), Prosecuting Attorney of Center City, is put “on the spot” by five men. Gary Greer, who is the pilot in charge of the South Side Airport, starts out to get those five men and avenge his father’s death.
Swift, written in dynamic prose, thrill piled on thrill, this book by Raoul Whitfield has the gusto of an Edgar Wallace, and something of the power of a Dashiell Hammett.
Quite possibly Raoul Whitfield’s best novel, it has achieved legendary status due to its rarity, no doubt due to it appearing in desirable issues of Black Mask which also published serial installments of The Maltese Falcon and The Glass Key. Rarely have readers had the chance to read this superior series in its original form, until now.
