    One thought on “The Motion Menace”

    1. Bantam reprint from the May, 1938 issue of doc Savage Magazine This one was written by Ryerson Johnson instead of Lester Dent.A group known as the Elders have a machine that can stop anything instantly cars, bullets, thrown things If a living being gets caught in the field, it stops all organ functions.Doc, Monk, Ham, Long Tom, and Pat have to find out the identity of the leader, known only as His Highness, and stop his plan Whatever it might be He seems to have no compunction about killing anyo [...]

    2. A strong concept wins out in The Motion Menace, a Doc Savage novel from May 1938.This Kenneth Robeson tale, written by Ryerson Johnson with help from Lester Dent, has a great premise Some device or some thing causes motion to cease, stopping cars as if they have hit an invisible wall, halting bullets in midair, the projectiles falling very slowly to the ground This weapon, if it be, also stops sound Great idea, OK execution.The incidents in which Doc Savage and his aides Johnny and Renny are abs [...]

    3. The first Doc Savage story appeared in 1933 and the series ran in pulp and later digest format into 1949 Bantam reprinted the entire series in paperback with wonderful, iconic covers starting in the 1960 s Doc was arguably the first great modern superhero with a rich background, continuity, and mythos The characterizations were far richer than was common for the pulps his five associates and their sometimes auxiliary, Doc s cousin Pat, and the pets Chemistry and Habeas Corpus, all had very disti [...]

    4. As a guilty pleasure, I am on a very occasional basis reading in some cases re reading some 30 years later the DOC SAVAGE series, out of order and fairly randomly These were my favorite books when I was a young teenager there are 182 books in the series, so this project will take me some time I grabbed THE MOTION MENACE to take along on a business trip to China, since much of the book is set in that country This one is a solid adventure, though not one of the best It s marred by some clunkiness [...]

    5. Attempting to kill Pat Savage a mysterious force stops a plane in mid air Later it freeze Doc in place for all his strength, almost kills Habeas, stops cars and engines it s a simple gimmick as it turns out, but effectively used for a lively, action packed series entry Though some details, like the villains weird disguises, are never effectively explained.

    6. I am a huge LOSH fan These collected volumes are prefect to be able to go back and read the older adventures of this Silver Age superhero team Very recommended
