Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows! The Knight of Darkness proves that crime does not pay in two pulp classics that inspired Golden Age BATMAN stories and artwork! First, in his true identity of Kent Allard, The Shadow investigates how a dying man's bequest of "The Crystal Buddha" became a legacy of death. Then, the Dark Avenger must invade Vreekill Castle and unmask the enigmatic mastermind called "The Vindicator" before murder claims another victim! This instant collector's item showcases the classic color pulp covers by George Rozen, the original interior illustrations by Edd Cartier and commentary by popular culture historian Will Murray. $14.95.
The town is jinxed. Harry Vincent, secret agent for The Shadow, had been sent to Hampstead to investigate, but he's now missing. So The Shadow makes a personal visit himself. And he's just in time to witness another horrible accident. At the steel mill, a cauldron of molten steel is accidentally poured too early. Instead of reaching the molds, it is splashed upon the workers. Another nine men perish in horrible deaths.The Shadow confirms that this is sabotage. Trusted workers are performing sabotage against their wills, under the hypnotic influence of The Voodoo Master. Dr. Rodil Mocquino, known as The Voodoo Master, was last seen sinking beneath the waves in the Hudson River, riddled with bullets. But now he's back, and he's trying to destroy the will of the inhabitants of Hampstead. If he can destroy the influence of the machine age, he can implant the principles of the voodoo belief upon the community. Only then will they be susceptible to join his cult. Thus, his war on industry.
Dr. Mocquino wields a strange hypnotic power over men. He has the ability to make them do his bidding, without realizing what they are doing. The Shadow must break the power of the Voodoo Master before the superstitious townsfolk fall prey to his evil. He must find and rescue his trusted agent Harry Vincent. And he must destroy the Voodoo Master once and for all.
Great news. Thanks for the quick answer and thanks for the great service I've gotten whenever I order stuff from Radio Archives.
I am a long time supporter of your web site and have enjoyed not only the quality of the programs but the sound quality of the programming.
I really enjoyed The Black Bat story. I'm looking forward to more of them being issued for the Kindle. I'm a fan of the 'Pulp' magazines.
