“The Shadow Unmasks” & “The Yellow Band”
Who knows what secrets lurk in The Shadow’s mysterious past? The Dark Avenger’s enigmatic origins are revealed in the first-ever reprint of one of the rarest (and most expensive) Shadow pulps. In “The Shadow Unmasks,” the real Lamont Cranston’s whereabouts become front-page news, and the Dark Avenger is forced to resurrect his long-buried true identity of Kent Allard, missing aviator and former spy. Then, while investigating a Miami crime ring, Kent Allard is framed by “The Yellow Band” and must revert to his Lamont Cranston alter ego to clear his name, This collector’s item special showcases George Rozen’s spectacular pulp covers and all the original interior art by pulp-legends Edd Cartier and Tom Lovell. BONUS: Walter Gibson and Will Murray reveal behind-the-scenes revelations about The Shadow’s origins, while Anthony Tollin examines the bizarre saga of Colonel P. H.
