Doc Savage (Marvel Magazine)

With renewed interest in the character sparked by the Doc Savage movie, Marvel kicked off this quarterly black-and-white Doc Savage magazine in 1975. Doc Savage, of course, is the legendary “Man of Bronze,” and one of the original pulp fiction action heroes. The title presents new stories by ace writer Doug Moench, along with film features, interviews with people involved with the creation of Doc Savage, and reviews of the original Doc Savage magazines and novels.

In its eight-issue run, this magazine showed Clark Savage Jr. and his friends, the Amazing Five, saving the world from a variety of madmen. Wherever adventure took him, Savage was always ready to meet it using his intellect and fighting skills to win the day.
