THE SHADOW Volume 25: “The Gray Ghost” & “The White Skulls” – Foreword by Everett Raymond Kinstler
“The weed of crime bears bitter fruit. Crime does not pay. The Shadow Knows!” The Knight of Darkness continues his war on crime in two more pulp thrillers by Walter B. Gibson (writing as “Maxwell Grant”). First, not even The Shadow’s bullets can stop his most formidable foe, “The Gray Ghost,” a seemingly supernatural adversary. Then, Lamont Cranston and Margo Lane hunt Nazi treasure and a blonde temptress as they attempt to unmask “The White Skulls,” skeletal-garbed terrorists who leave behind a deadly wake of destruction. BONUS: The Shadow battles killer ants in “The Red Room,” a terrifying script from the Golden Age of Radio. This classic reprint also features both color pulp covers by George Rozen and Modest Stein, classic interior illustrations by Tom Lovell and Everett Raymond Kinstler (who also provides a foreword recalling his early days as a comic book artist and pulp illustrator) and historical commentary by Will Murray and Anthony Tollin.
