THE GOLDEN AGE
Classic Superhero Action
Now in paperback!
White Rocket Books proudly announces the release in trade paperback format of THE GOLDEN AGE, a new superhero novel featuring the classic Standard/Better/Nedor characters from 1939-56, by noted pulp and superhero author Jeff Deischer (Spook Trail; The Winter Wizard).
The year is 1942, and the world is at war. Spies and saboteurs seem to lurk around every corner of America. But the real danger awaits in the shadows. Following the Battle of Midway, the Dragon Society of Imperial Japan dispatches its most deadly agents on a secret mission to knock the US out of the war. Only the Black Terror, Fighting Yank, Pyroman and the other classic heroes of the Auric Universe can stop them.
“This book is the end product of the natural evolution of my writing, combining my two great loves, pulps and superheroes,” says Deischer. “So its writing should come as no surprise. Throw in World War II and forgotten heroes, and it was probably inevitable.”
The book includes a special Introduction by comics and pulp historian Will Murray.

Snide editorializing from Yours Truly: Well, at least someone is publishing new stories featuring these great characters. Don't let the lack of pictures put you off. And before someone asks, no, I don't have a clue what the heck "the Auric Universe" is either. Just a fancy way of saying a universe full of Golden Age characters would be my guess.
