Doc Savage

The above book unfortunately does not exist, its fan made.

Doc Savage is coming to DC's new pulp-o-verse (as featured in First Wave #1, get yours today!) and getting his own new comic series this week. If you don't know you he is you might wanna peruse his wiki entry.

And of course in Phillip Jose Farmer's work he figures prominently in the Wold Newton family making him part of the heroic legacy akin to Warren Ellis' Planetary and Alan Moore's League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

His history in comics goes back to 1940s and there's been attempts to make the character more "contemporary" by both Marvel and DC, but it looks like DC's getting it right this time and embracing what makes the character great while placing him (along with Batman, The Spirit and others) in a timeless milieu.
