THE SHADOW Volume 38:
“Dead Men Live” & “Dictator of Crime”
“Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows! The Dark Avenger crushes criminal conspiracies in two pulse-pounding pulp thrillers by Walter Gibson writing as “Maxwell Grant.” First, Lamont Cranston discovers that strange scientific secrets lurk behind a series of prominent murders when “Dead Men Live.” Then, Kent Allard and Margo Lane journey to a Caribbean nation to confront a “Dictator of Crime,” but “La Sombra” is soon captured and sentenced to death by firing squad. This instant collector’s item leads off with one of George Rozen’s greatest pulp covers (later featured on Shadow Comics #1), and also showcases the original interior illustrations by Tom Lovell and Paul Orban and commentary by pulp historians Will Murray and Anthony Tollin.
