Growing up, I missed the whole The Destroyer phenomenon As a kid, I was never that much of a reader with the exception being comic books mostly so it s understandable that any franchise however big or small never quite dropped onto my radar As I matured, I did find a bit of a niche in reading some light science fiction novels, but I heavily gravitated toward vintage crime and pulps from the 30 s and 40 s When I became aware of The Destroyer, I grew interested but then I saw that REM Growing up, I missed the whole The Destroyer phenomenon As a kid, I was never that much of a reader with the exception being comic books mostly so it s understandable that any franchise however big or small never quite dropped onto my radar As I matured, I did find a bit of a niche in reading some light science fiction novels, but I heavily gravitated toward vintage crime and pulps from the 30 s and 40 s When I became aware of The Destroyer, I grew interested but then I saw that REMO WILLIAMS movie, and I tuned out The lowbrow snark just wasn t my thing at the time, and the whole idea seemed to smack of a 70 s era recreation of dime novel sensibilities though with a 60 s era sense of humor.Still, I found online friends recommending to me to delve into the literary world of Remo Williams over and over the past few decades In fact, so many did that I decided to pick up a compendium of three best of novels and give it a whirl I ll read them one at a time, and I ll sound off them individua

I loved the Remo Williams movie growing up, and I am still a big fan I enjoyed this book it shares enough of the spirit of the movie, and it brought some smiles to my face I will likely try others in the series.
