We all know I’m a fan of Doc Savage (well if you didn’t you do now). I’m not really sure how a comicbook fan can’t at least have a little interest in Doc Savage, but I digress. The bottom line is I’ve been a fan of him as long as I’ve been a fan of the Flash. I’m also a fan of writing and finding new ways to include social networks and such in my writing. To leverage the nature of things like Twitter and Facebook. So I had an idea.
I went and created a new Twitter account @themanofbronze. I put the name in as Doc Savage, made the profile sound like Doc and started Twittering as Doc Savage. I’m attempting to Twitter as though I’m Doc during the Fortress of Solitude story. The idea is to get people interested in who Doc Savage is and make him feel like a real person. For people who have read the story it should become quickly familiar, for those who haven’t it will give a summary of the story, the key is to not give too much away. I’m not doing this particular project as promotion, just as a fun way of testing out my concept, but eventually I think this would be a neat tie in to Atlantis as I relaunch it.
So follow @themanofbronze and if you’re already following him, then follow me @tibbarerew. Definitely drop one of us a line and let us know what you think. Don’t forget to tell your friends!!!
