THE SHADOW VOLUMES 30/31!

THE SHADOW VOLUMES 30/31!

VOLUME 30

"The Sealed Box" & "Racket Town"

"The weed of crime bears bitter fruit. Crime does not pay. The Shadow knows! When supercrime casts its dark shadow over two troubled towns, the Master Avenger swings into action to root out evil.

First, guised as both Lamont Cranston and Kent Allard, The Shadow seeks to uncover the strange secret of "The Sealed Box" that makes it more valuable than life itself, in the classic novel that was adapted as the first Shadow comic strip adventure.

Then, the Dark Avenger battles the vile corruption that lurks beneath the surface of the "Racket Town."

BONUS: Commissioner James Gordon becomes "Bullet Bait" in the first Whisperer short story from the back pages of The Shadow Magazine!

This groundbreaking pulp reprint showcases both original color pulp covers by George Rozen and the classic interior illustrations by Edd Cartier, with historical articles by Will Murray and Anthony Tollin.

VOLUME 31

"The Dark Death" & "House of Shadows" (Halloween Special)

"Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!

A ruthless blackmailer acquires the Q-ray, a deadly device that kills with eerie selectivity via "The Dark Death."

Then, a dying gunman asks the Knight of Darkness to save his brother from a life of crime in "House of Shadows," a powerful tale of redemption.

BONUS: An executed murderer returns to exact vengeance on Margo Lane's father in "Murder by the Dead," a lost radio thriller from Orson Welles' first month as The Shadow.

This instant collector's item showcases the original color pulp covers by George Rozen and Graves Gladney and all the classic interior illustrations by Tom Lovell and Edd Cartier, with historical articles by Will Murray and Anthony Tollin.
