G-8 and His Battle Aces #19 The Cave-Man Patrol
Share this book    
They were strange creatures — these grayish skinned beings who could see in the darkness like wild cats and who fought only with bows and arrows, yet hundreds of Yanks died beneath their wings! Why did they roam No-Man’s Land in the dead of night... why did they ride war skies on dynamite death wings? G-8 took up their trail grimly, hurtling straight into the deadliest trap ever set for a fighting war eagle! Even though G-8 was the hero of his own adventures, readers also flew along with the Battle Aces for another very significant reason. The villains in each adventure. Each one of Robert J. Hogan’s 110 G-8 stories is set squarely in World War One, but it wasn’t the war that Hogan’s readers remembered or had heard about. The horrors of combat that G-8 faced were much more monstrous than bullets and mustard gas, outlandishly so. In his very first adventure, G-8 led the Aces against large bats controlled by the German Forces. The enemies they would face after that first outing only grew stranger and more deadly. Zombies took to the skies in later G-8 adventures. Jellyfish like creatures with long, deadly tentacles terrorized the wartime pilots. Even Martians and werewolves creatures got into the act. And some of G-8’s most notable foes even came back for more than one chance at the Aces, but none were as memorable as G-8’s first foe, the insidious Herr Doktor Krueger. As evil as G-8 was righteous, Krueger attempted multiple times to win the war for the Kaiser and rid himself of America’s Master Spy. He succeeded at neither. Nick Santa Maria brings G-8, Nippy and Bull to thrilling life in their desperate struggle to defeat a strange nemesis unlike anything they have ever before encountered in The Cave-Man Patrol. Originally published in the April, 1935 issue of G-8 and His Battle Aces magazine.
