Description

Perhaps the most qualified writer on the Shadow, Will Murray wrote the “Interludes” for all 161 pulp reprints of The Shadow, plus original novels. Articles and interviews begin with The Shadow’s origins as a nebulous radio personality to becoming one of the most recognizable and popular pulp heroes of all time. Rare interviews with Walter B. Gibson, Theodore Tinsley, John L. Nanovic, Graves Gladney and Edd Cartier.

Master of Mystery: The Rise of The Shadow explores the character’s emergence as an enduring legend still relevant in the 21st Century. In this definitive collection, popular culture historian and novelist Will Murray presents his most compelling investigations into the Dark Avenger and the creators who developed him.

This hardcover has a bonus full color painting of The Shadow on the back cover of the dust wrapper by Colton Worley. He’s done a very cool pastiche of an original Shadow Magazine cover (see our scan). Worley is a contemporary illustrator.

The front cover is a specially commissioned painting by Joe DeVito. Inside artists include full page illustrations by Frank Hamilton, more work by Worley, and an original illustration by Ed Cartier, photos of many of the radio show actors and other people associated with The Shadow like Walter Gibson, editor John Nanovic, and author Tinsley, advertisements such as Blue Cole posters, and much more.
