Captain Zero #1 November 1949 Publisher's Summary

Will Murray's Pulp Classics

Captain Zero premiered in November 1949, and had the dubious distinction of being the last of the single-character hero pulps. Captain Zero was a fabulous character whose strange and deadly career began each midnight at the stroke of 12 - and ended each gray dawn with the first rays of the sun. During those few hours, he became completely invisible! But even that wonderous feat wasn't enough to save the pulp magazine. It ended after only three issues. Now, once again, you will experience the reading thrills in the adventures of this amazing, yet compellingly human, character of fiction...the Master of Midnight, Captain he returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today's listeners.
