Secret Origin

Jan 27, 2009

Hi there! My name is Josh, and I've been reading superhero comics as long as I can remember. Eventually, I wanted to read the stories that influenced superheroes, which led to my discovery of pulp magazines and other thrilling adventure stories. I began reading about characters like Doc Savage, the Shadow, the Scarlet Pimpernel and Captain Future. I began reading writers like Edgar Rice Burroughs, Robert E. Howard, E.E. "Doc" Smith and H.P. Lovecraft.

That's what I'll be writing about here. I'll write reviews of graphic novels and adventure stories the Johnson County Library has in its collection. If you want to talk about comics and adventure stories, please leave comments here on the blog. Also, if you have any suggestions or recommendations of your own, leave comments or email me: neffj at

Now...stand by for adventure!

I love superheroes, Doctor Who, and old movies.
