Radio Archives: Doc Savage – White Eyes Review


I want to thank our friends over at Radio Archives for sending me a review copy of their latest audiobook, Doc Savage: White Eyes. This is another fantastic Pulp tale written by the talented Will Murray, who like in the Python Isle adventure has found inspiration coming from the creator of the Man of Bronze himself, Lester Dent. By using some notes from an abandoned story idea for “The Annihilist”, Will Murrary, has continued to honor the legendary pulp writer by not only keeping Doc Savage active in new adventures but by adopting Lester Dent’s writing style to boot!

Doc Savage – White Eyes Trailer – Radio Archives by VicSage2005

Just check out Joe DeVito’s exciting artwork up top for your first glimpse at the criminal mastermind, White Eyes!

“In “White Eyes”, a new supercriminal emerges from the underworld. Dressed all in white, his face masked, eyes blank as a blind man’s, he calls himself White Eyes. Who is he? What are his goals? All of Manhattan reels under the onslaught of the Blind Death, a scourge so terrible that innocent people are struck dead, their eyes turning white as hardboiled eggs. From his skyscraper headquarters high above the streets of New York City to the sugarcane fields of Cuba, Doc Savage races to crush gangland’s latest uncrowned king!”

As in Python Isle and as you can hear from the trailer posted above you can really tell how much work the likes of Roger Rittner and of course Radio Archives puts into these audiobooks, the sound is crisp and clear and they make sure to get a narrator that can not only portray the Man of Bronze and his “fabulous five” but EVERY character in the tale as well and they’ve chosen wisely with Richard Epcar.

Epcar is well known in the world of voice acting as he has had the honor of playing over 300 characters in everything from Ghost in the Shell to Raiden in the new Mortal Kombat series!

Those of you who have read my reviews before know that I am always very hesitant to step into spoiler territory…but I have to say that in Chapter 28 “Gangdom’s Long Arm”…I was pacing the floor in front of the radio, since this is a chapter where Doc Savage’s skyscraper headquarters comes under siege by the united criminal underworld. That I think is the greatest compliment I can give to Radio Archives and Will Murray, the writing and production is so strong that I actually got nervous for Doc Savage and his friends!

White Eyes is already available to purchase on the Radio Archives site, with the 10 CD set costing a mere $31.98 and the 10 hour digital download available for $21.98! What are you waiting for? Don’t you want to know what happens to Doc Savage in that assault on his skyscraper?
