Radio Archives Pulp Classics: Dare-Devil Aces #106, January 1941
Total pulp experience. These exciting pulp adventures feature every story, every editorial, and every column of the original pulp magazine.
Dare-Devil Aces was another of the many pulps that rode the wave of popularity of World War I aviation tales in the decade after the conflict. It made its debut in February 1932 and lasted for an astounding 135 issues. It finally closed after World War II ended, with the November 1946 issue. During its run, it presented a wide assortment of high-flying aerial series, including The Red Falcon, The Vanished Legion, The Three Mosquitoes, Molloy and McNamara, The Black Sheep of Belogue, The Mongol Ace, Chinese Brady, Captain Babyface, Smoke Wade, and others.
Strap on your flying helmet, toss that scarf about your neck, and get ready for some soaring action in the skies over France and Germany during the Great War. Dare-Devil Aces returns in vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s listeners in electronic format.
