Doc Con XVIII

This year marks the 40th anniversary of DOC SAVAGE: THE MAN OF BRONZE, producer George Pal’s film adaptation of the Street & Smith pulp hero’s first adventure.

To celebrate, Doc Con XVIII has lined up a very special guest: actor Ron Ely, who starred as the Man of Bronze in the 1975 film. (He also played another pulp character, Tarzan, for two seasons on TV in the 1960s.) Ely will talk about the movie and be available for photos and autographs.

Other guests will include Bob Larkin, who painted more than 50 covers for Bantam’s Doc Savage paperback series; Anthony Tollin, publisher of Sanctum Books, who expects to finish reprinting all of the Doc Savage novels by the end of the year; and sociologist October Surprise, who has studied the readership of DOC SAVAGE MAGAZINE through its letter columns.

Doc Con XVIII will be Friday through Sunday, Oct. 9-11, 2015, at the Comfort Suites, 9824 W. Camelback Rd., Glendale, Ariz. You can find out more about Doc Con on its Facebook page, or by emailing Jay Ryan at JRyanDS@aol.com.
