Upcoming Doc Savage and Shadow reprints
THE SHADOW Volume 7: "The Cobra" & "The Third Shadow"
"The weed of crime bears bitter fruit. Crime does not pay. The Shadow Knows!" The Master Avenger returns in two of Walter Gibson's most memorable mysteries. A new crimefighter called The Cobra decimates the Manhattan underworld in a murderous war on organized crime. Has The Shadow finally met his match, or will he be forced to de-fang a human snake? Then, the Knight of Darkness confronts not one but two sinister doppelgangers in The Third Shadow. Which Shadow will have the last laugh? In his foreword, Marvel Comics-great Dick Ayers recalls how The Shadow inspired the creation of the Ghost Rider, while popular culture historian Will Murray explains how The Shadow influenced the creation of classic characters including Batman, the Spider, the Black Bat and the Darkman. This classic pulp collection also features George Rozen's electrifying pulp covers, and all the original interior art by acclaimed illustrator Tom Lovell. Due out in April.

Then, The Shadow journeys to a strange Castle of Doom, where murder lurks behind its battlements. Mystery and intrigue abound in this thrilling tale of lost treasure, secret underground passages and ghostly apparitions. In honor of The Shadow's first British adventure, popular culture historian Anthony Tollin chronicles the 1930s and 1950s English pulp reprints and the 1940s Australian Shadow radio series.
