Horror has a new face
From the pages of the classic pulps comes the most frightening avenger of them all, the Purple Scar! The handsome, debonair Dr. Miles Murdoch was a world-famous plastic surgeon. His life was the stuff of dreams until it all turned into a heart-wrenching nightmare.
Murdoch's brother, a dedicated police officer, is brutally gunned down while on patrol. Before dumping his body into the river, his murderers pour acid over his face as a final act of contempt. When the body washes ashore days later, Officer Murdoch's face is beyond recognition, a scarred, purple visage unlike any horror ever imagined. It is the sight of this death grimace that transforms Miles Murdoch into an avenging angel.
Vowing to bring justice to those responsible, the skilled surgeon molds a pliable rubber mask from that repulsive, mutilated face; a mask he dons to become the Purple Scar, the scourge of crooks and villains everywhere. He has become the physical embodiment of their worst fears brought to fiendish life. Airship 27 now presents four brand new adventures of the creepiest pulp hero of them all, the Purple Scar!
