The Avenger is a pulp hero crime fighter who combined elements of "Doc Savage" and "The Shadow" though he was never as popular as either of these fictional characters. The radio series came about when the producers of The Shadow needed a short replacement for that series. They turned to profilic pulp writer Walter Gibson to create The Avenger by taking elements from the Savage and Shadow characters. Although The Avenger was an abbreviated series it was well-written and that alone makes the show worth listening to. Click here for a list of episodes on this old time radio CD.
