It must be the Marvel fan in me but I really do like team-ups. In this case it is Old Pulp warrior Jim Anthony (for those unfamiliar, he was cut from the same cloth as Doc Savage but just did not hit the popularity of his more famous "cousin") meeting the New Pulp pantheon equivalent in Dillon. In this case we see a far more seasoned Anthony coming out of retirement to play mentor to the strapping young lad.
The action is nonstop from the get go with the usual mix of gunfights, brutal melees, car chases, nefarious villains, larger than life heroes, you get the idea. The book is laid out in three sections. The first section introduces us to the characters as usual, but in this case it introduces the characters to each other as well. It is very interesting to see Jim and Dillon's first meeting and how it all unfolds. The second part of the book is a lengthy flashback piece that nicely lays out the backstory and then finally the third section is the exciting conclusion to the whole affair. Not everything falls into place how you would expect, which makes it all a very fun read.
The book goes into a lot of detail, sometimes the the details may not be entirely necessary, but they do not detract from the book and it does a great job of enhancing the characters as well. Speaking of the characters, besides the obvious duo protagonists, the rest of the cast from arch villain Sun Koh to all of his paladins as he calls them as well as Jim's associates bring a whole lot of color and flash to the story. Some of these characters are steeped in pulp lore.
There are a bunch of Easter eggs spread throughout the book, a lot of characters are namedropped, while some others are merely hinted at (for copyright reasons no doubt). There are nods to the Miskatonic University, Atlantis (a major part of the storyline) and numerous other tropes of pulpdom. In essence, it fits into the "Pulp Cinematic Universe" quite nicely.
Finally, I have to mention the artwork as Airship 27 Productions once again not only delivers with a fantastic cover, but the obligatory interior art does a great job of putting that extra dimension into a very fun read.
If you want a fun read, get this book. Get. this. book. See where I'm going with this?
