Post by Col_Fury » Wed Mar 11, 2015 3:31 am

DOC SAVAGE v2 #1 (August, 1975)
By Doug Moench & John Buscema

APPEARANCES:
Doc Savage (Clark Savage Jr.), Monk (Lt. Col. Andrew Blodgett Mayfair), Ham (Brig. Gen. Theodore Marley Brooks), Long Tom (Maj. Thomas J. Roberts), Renny (Col. John Renwick), Johnny (William Harper Littlejohn), Silver Ziggurat (Thomas J. Bolt, jealous architect), Winston Tremaine (famous architect, also in fb), Angel Tremaine (Winston’s sister & Thomas’ fiancée, also in fb)

FLASHBACK:
When a nearby skyscraper explodes, Winston Tremaine tells his sister to contact Doc Savage.
SYNOPSIS:
Angel Tremaine tells Doc Savage her brother is in trouble, so Doc Savage and his pals follow clues left by Winston and figure out that Angel’s fiancée is the villain, jealous of Winston’s success.

NOTE:
This is the only Doc Savage story from both volumes and either guest appearance that doesn’t provide a date (except for maybe DOCSAV2 4, which I don’t have). Also, Chris Claremont interviews director George Pal about the Doc Savage movie.

DOC SAVAGE v2 #2 (October, 1975)
By Doug Moench & Tony DeZuniga

APPEARANCES:
Doc Savage, Monk, Ham, Long Tom, Renny, Johnny, Habeus Corpus (Monk’s talking pig), Mad Viking (Jared Rutter, also in fb), Quentin Taine (explorer, also in fb), Sandy Taine (Quentin’s daughter)

FLASHBACK:
A Spanish ship carrying treasure sinks. Centuries later, Quentin Taine and a search party go looking for it, but they crash and only some of the party returns home.
SYNOPSIS:
When the Mad Viking kills a real estate mogul, Quentin Taine is blamed, despite him being missing for months. Sandy Taine asks Doc Savage for help. Savage and his pals solve the case!

NOTE:
Dialogue places this in July, 1939. Also, John Warner interviews actor Ron Ely about the Doc Savage movie.

DOC SAVAGE v2 #3 (January, 1976)
By Doug Moench & John Buscema

APPEARANCES:
Doc Savage, Monk, Ham, Long Tom, Renny, Johnny, Inferno (Giovanni Stavros), Contessa de Chabrol

SYNOPSIS:
Mechanical animals are stealing diamonds from museums! Contessa de Chabrol asks Doc Savage for help; she claims her brother is stealing them. She’s actually working with the thief, Inferno, and Savage and his pals defeat them.

NOTE:
Noted as May, 1933.

2nd STORY:
By Doug Moench & Rico Rival

APPEARANCES:
Ham, Monk, Habeus Corpus, Craig “Masher” Miller, Veronica Curtis, Marla (Monk’s secretary)

SYNOPSIS:
Ham and Monk argue about Monk’s pig and secretary until Veronica Curtis asks for their help with Craig “Masher” Miller. Ham and Monk take care of business!

FLASHBACK:
Doc Savage starts an adventure!
SYNOPSIS:
Doc Savage and his pals travel across the world, accompanied by Pat Savage, Doc’s cousin.

NOTE:
Happens over several days (and continents) in June, 1933. Unfortunately, Pat Savage appears here already owning her beauty salon, which has to happen after DOCSAV 7-8, which was noted as happening in January, 1934. I’ll just pretend this issue meant to say June, 1934 instead of 1933.

Also, an article by Bob Sampson and David Anthony Kraft interviews Mrs. Lester Dent.
