Hok. Hok was created by Manly Wade Wellman (Sgt. Jaeger, Patch Merrick, Judge Keith Hilary Pursuivant, Sojarr, Jack Stillwell) and appeared in five stories in Amazing and Fantastic Adventures from 1939 to 1942, beginning with “Battle in the Dawn” (Amazing Stories, Jan. 1939).

Hok is a Prehistoric Adventurer. He is a Cro-Magnon in a prehistoric time when ape-men, mammoths, and pterodactyls roam the Earth. Hok’s adventures, from his journey to Atlantis (in what is now the Mediterranean) to his battles with the fiercest dinosaurs and the monstrous Neanderthals, are the core of humanity’s hero myths, from Gilgamesh to Hercules.
