THE SHADOW ANNUAL #1

Availability: In stock

$14.95
The Crime Crypt/ The Green Terror & Can The Dead Talk? Highly Recommended. By Walter B. Gibson and Theodore Tinsley, writing as Maxwell Grant. Three stories that inspired Batman Comics villains and stories: The Shadow smuggles himself into a criminal mastermind's "Crime Crypt" using the same gimmick as in the 1950 Batman story, "1,001 Trophies of the Batcave." Next, he battles "The Green Terror," a criminal whose use of scientifically induced fear preceded Scarecrow's infamous modus operandi. Finally, in a classic radio script that foreshadowed the Ra's Al Ghul saga, Lamont Cranston dies so that The Shadow can go undercover to battle a super-villain who has discovered his secret identity in "Can the Dead Talk?"
