THE SHADOW # 28:
Master of Death & The Rackets King
Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow Knows! The Knight of Darkness battles supercrime in two crimebusting pulp novels by Walter B. Gibson writing as Maxwell Grant. First, The Shadow follows a bizarre murder trail that leads to the walking dead, a living skeleton and the Master of Death, a collector of diabolical killing techniques. Then, The Shadow and his agents struggle to protect Manhattan from an underworld war conducted by the Czar of Crime known as The Rackets King. BONUS: The Purple Girasol, a never-published 1931 horror story by Walter Gibson that inspired The Shadow’s famous ring! This instant collector’s item showcases both original color covers by George Rozen, the classic interior illustrations by Tom Lovell and Edd Cartier, and historical commentary by Anthony Tollin and Will Murray.
