The Shadow In Vengeance Bay

Unlike some other heroes who branched out into radio, serials and feature films, the Shadow did not start in comic books, but rather in pulp fiction, from which he later moved to the comics.  Although these pulp stories had illustrations, it was the imagery in the prose that told the story.  Comics, Old Time Radio & Other Cool Stuff posted this review of a March 1942 issue of The Shadow magazine.
