PULP NOW: UNMASKED!

PULP NOW: UNMASKED!

BLACK DOG BOOKS - COMING SOON!

COVER: GEORGE J. ROZEN

Everyone recognizes the names of the Cisco Kid, Hopalong Cassidy, Zorro and the Lone Ranger. But how many actually know the characters from their fictional roots? Years before appearing in film, on radio and television, their creators painted a rather different picture of each from what Hollywood presented for these legendary heroes of the silver screen.

Did you know the Cisco Kid first appeared as a villain? Or that Hopalong Cassidy was an unpolished hard case far removed from "the friend to every man" as he came to be known in film and television?

In this handsome volume Unmasked collects the first appearances of the Cisco Kid, Hopalong Cassidy, Zorro and a forgotten novel of the Lone Ranger.

With a new introduction and historical essays.
