Professional History

Franklyn E. Hamilton was revered as an acclaimed pulp fiction artist. His unique illustrating style – pen-and-ink stippling – can be found on numerous fanzine covers, pulp-related reference books and chapbooks including; Doc Savage Quarterly, Duende, Echoes, Golden Perils, Mike Shayne Mystery Magazine, Pulp Vault, Xenophile and many more.

Raised on Doc Savage and The Shadow, he was an obsessive pulp collector. In the early 1970s, Hamilton published his first illustration in Bobby Van's "Pulp" fanzine.

Soon after, publisher Robert Weinberg contacted Hamilton to illustrate some Shadow drawings for Frank Eisgruber's Gangland's Doom.
