"Over the past 20+ years, the publishing industry has seen an incredible increase in writers returning to the stories of the past and producing new adventures of old heroes. PRO SE PRESS under their PULP OBSCURA Imprint, is one of the leaders among those and continues to give their readers fun and exciting new chapters starring their favorites.
In this publication, authors Bobby Nash, Don Thomas, and Terry Alexander create three shorts that could have been ripped from the pages of the 1930s pulps. An invention of the creator of Zorro, Johnston McCulley, the Green Ghost is the costumed identity of disgraced police detective Danny Blaney who was framed and fired from the force. Even though he was acquitted, the stigma stays with him and he is rejected by his fellow officers. Adopting the guise of the GREEN GHOST, Blaney is able to continue to fight the criminals that he had dedicated his life to eliminating.
The three stories in this volume are quick, straight punch to the gut type reads as the authors throw their hero into three unique situations...
MANIFEST DESTINY - by Bobby Nash - a land grab scheme aimed at an entire neighborhood threatens the lives of those who have no say.
MY BROTHER'S KEEPER - by Don Thomas - Much as his civilian identity suffers, the GREEN GHOST of framed for horrible murders that he didn't commit.
BEWARE...FIXER - by Terry Alexander - The world of the GREEN GHOST expands as international criminals find their way into his city.
Three stories...three takes on the original. While the authors stay mostly true to the original, they do make a few small changes that most casual readers will not notice. Another good production and flashback to the past."
The New Adventures of The Green Ghost is available in paperback, ebook, and audio.
Thanks again, Dale.

The newest Volume spotlights a Cop Done Wrong seeking justice the only way he can get it- Behind a Mask! Pulp Obscura Presents THE NEW ADVENTURES OF THE GREEN GHOST!
An invention of Zorro creator Johnston McCulley, the Green Ghost is secretly Danny Blaney, an honest police officer who was framed by criminals and then disgraced by his fellow officers. Acquitted by a jury and dismissed by the police, Danny, as the Green Ghost, plays a dangerous game as he confounds cops and criminals in his unique crusade for justice!
“The Green Ghost,” Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of and Partner In Pro Se Productions, explains, “is in many ways a typical McCulley and even Pulp character. A heroic figure who, due to some tragedy in his past as well as an unerring sense to see justice done. One of the unique things about The Green Ghost, though, is even in the original stories there’s a different sense than with most Pulp heroes. There’s a tension, an anxiety in Danny Blaney because he’s been disgraced by the criminals and disavowed by the law. So, there’s more than just the need for wrong to be made right. He’s proving himself to himself that he’s good enough to enforce the law and not what anyone says about him. That’s a significant aspect of the character and one that the writers in THE NEW ADVENTURES OF THE GREEN GHOST have captured well right in amongst the mystery and action.”
