Journal JabberWokky's Journal: Name that series! 3

Somebody said the Saint was a James Bond rip off. Sure, but the genre itself was being overused in that era. Far earlier, earlier even than Ian Fleming's stories, there was a superb example of the ultimate agent, with papers from governments giving him rights to find and stop bad guys. Name him (and for extra points, name his companions).

Name that series!

  • Doc Savage? I don't remember his allies' names, though. It's been so long since I read one of his novels.
    • Bingo!

      Yup - Thomas "Monk" Mayfair, and Somebody "Hamm" Something are the two I remember off the top of my head. And Longtom... hurm... three out of five. The only two that stick out in my head are Monk and Hamm, with Habeus Corpus the pig and... was it Chimestry the monkey? Hamm was a lawyer with the monkey, and Monk was the chemisty expert and had the pig. I'm sure I could look all this up in about two minutes - I did not too long ago (somebody got it in the story).


All I ask is a chance to prove that money can't make me happy.
