Format: Paperback
Nostalgia Ventures and Anthony Tollin have teamed up to do a comprehensive reprint of several Street & Smith pulp heroes. At present, they are doing double reprints of The Shadow and Doc Savage. Shortly, they will start new series reprinting The Avenger and The Whisperer. All have complete pulp texts (no edits or removals, like past reprints), tho reset so its easier to read, the original illustrations, reprinted covers (one is used as the cover of the book, but both original pulp covers are shown on the back), and several additional articles and extras.

Hopefully, they can succeed to reprinting all these characters in these new editions, they are all excellent.

With The Shadow having over 325 pulp novels, only a few reprinted, for the most part they are avoiding those that have been reprinted. They do try to pick two that more or less 'go together' in terms of a common theme.

With this book, #7, we have "The Cobra" (April 1, 1934) and "The Third Shadow" (March 15, 1936). The common theme of these is again, superfoes. The cover of "The Third Shadow" is the cover of this volume, tho in a change from past volumes, a small version of the cover of "The Cobra" is also included on the front cover. The pulp covers of both are shown on the back.

"The Cobra" pits The Shadow against another superfoe: the Cobra. This was during the time that The Shadow was more and more dealing with such villians.

"The Third Shadow" pits The Shadow against 2 imposters who try to frame him for crimes.

As extras in this issue are:

An Intro by comic book artist Dick Ayers, creator of Ghost Rider (no, not the Marvel character, but the earlier western hero published by Magazine Enterprises).
