DOC SAVAGE #6

“The Sky Stealers!”
Writer: Doug Moench
Artist: Tony DeZuniga

The little town of Plainville, Utah all the people are dead. They died of suffocation as if the air was sucked out of the sky. The banks were robbed and all the uranium in the assayers office is stolen. Later another small town shares a similar fate. Doc Savage is on the case. The trail leads to the pyramids of Giza. There a mad archeologist who has discovered the ancient secrets of Egypt. He has two zeppelins that shoot a ray that breaks down the atmosphere. He uses the money and uranium to give him and his followers superhuman strength. Doc Savages and his brothers manage to put a stop to this.

“Renny”
By Bob Sampson

An article about John Renwick or Renny as he’s called. He is a brilliant civil engineer. A man over seven feet tall and 250 pounds. He is not as flamboyant as the other Amazing five. This article was dry and seemed to be a filler more than anything else.

Another fun entry in the Doc Savage universe. This one had superpowered beings dressed as the Egyptian gods of old. They had hypnotic powers and futuristic gadgets. There was a secret room in the pyramids that lead to an underground river that lead to another secret underground base. All of this was suggested to be left over alien technology. Once again there was a beautiful woman that needed rescuing and an evil villain that threatened the world. I love how they manage to keep true to its pulp roots from the ’30s.
