The Dark Avenger wages war on organized super-crime in two classic pulp mysteries by Walter B. Gibson writing as "Maxwell Grant." First, a city's financial system is threatened by the murderous machinations of "Intimidation, Inc.," until The Shadow beats them at their own game! Then, the Knight of Darkness strives to unmask the"Wizard of Crime," the hidden financial genius behind Intimidation, Inc., in a rare shadowy sequel. This instant collector's item showcases the classic color pulp covers by George Rozen and the original interior illustrations by Tom Lovell and Paul Orban, with commentary by popular culture historian Will Murray.$14.95.
Who is the mystery man? Where does he come from? What is this weapon that brings Cold Death? Can even Doc Savage prevail against such a doomsday weapon?
This story was written in 1936 yet it eerily predicts laser-like weapons and the explosive power of nuclear fusion. The threat of weapons of mass destruction in the hands of terrorists and fanatics is timelier today than when the story was first printed. This is one of my favorites of the weird science Doc Savage sagas. Don’t Miss it! Double Novel reprint $12.95
