The Curse of Capistrano and Other Adventures: The Johnston McCulley Omnibus, Volume 2 (The Argosy Library)
A monster-sized volume containing the first two Zorro novels from the pages of All-Story Weekly by Johnston McCulley. It’s headlined by the premiere Zorro adventure, “The Curse of Capistrano,” along with the rare, second Zorro story, “The Further Adventures of Zorro.” Taken directly from the original pulp texts and including several of the original pulp illustrations.
Fresh off the creation of Zorro, writer Johnston McCulley created a fantastic follow-up masked hero: The Man in Purple! Nearly forgotten today and never before reprinted in its entirety, The Man in Purple series has been restored to its original glory! As a bonus, this collection has been augmented by an all-new adventure of The Man in Purple by pulp writer Tom Johnson.
Written in the depths of The Depression, this collects the entire saga of The Whirlwind, Johnston (Zorro) McCulley’s other Southwestern hero of the Old West! Never before reprinted, this omnibus includes an all-new Whirlwind adventure by novelist Tom Johnson.
The inspiration for Batman! For the first time in one collection, all four appearances of the pulp hero The Bat, as written by pulp legend Johnston McCulley (Zorro). These stories from 1934-35 detail the adventures of Dawson Clade, a man who was inspired to fight crime by a bat’s sudden appearance. Includes an all-new introduction by pulp historian Will Murray.
