- Full Description
The Knight of Darkness investigates magic-based crimes! First, The Shadow follows a traveling carnival’s trail of death to uncover the bizarre secret behind “The Freak Show Murders.” Then he infiltrates the world of illusion when a professional magician’s props are utilized to commit “Murder by Magic.” And a nightclub mind reader sees and tells all, but Kent Allard suspects the mentalist’s visions are being used to commit “Crime Out of Mind”. Finally, is a stage hypnotist responsible when a subject commits suicide before a theater full of witnesses?
BONUS: Walter Gibson and Edd Cartier tell the real life magical tale of Herrmann the Great, in an 8-page story reprinted from Red Dragon Comics.
This leads off with a striking cover painting by illustrator Charles Coll and also showcases the original and rare digest covers by Modest Stein and Walter Swenson, with interior illustrations by Paul Orban and Edd Cartier. Historical commentary by Will Murray, and publisher Anthony Tollin looks at the real life magic (and debunking) of Walter Gibson.
This is another bonus-sized issue, that leads up to the final issue, #151. Extra stories, 176 pages, 50% more than the usual issue.
