The Shadow #19

Voodoo Trail / Death's Harlequin

by Maxwell Grant

"Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow Knows!"

The Master of Darkness returns in three thrillers that foreshadowed two classic Batman villains. First, the Voodoo Master returns from the dead to lead The Shadow on a "Voodoo Trail" to their final showdown, in the story that inspired Batman's first supervillain, Doctor Death.

Then, The Shadow battles a murderous clown in "Death's Harlequin." Finally, The Dark Avenger searches for a murderer who kills with a deadly formula that causes his victims to laugh themselves to death in "The Laughing Corpse," a classic Shadow script from the Golden Age of Radio.

This instant collector's item also features both color pulp covers by George Rozen and Graves Gladney, all the interior illustrations by legendary illustrator Ed Cartier and commentary by popular culture historians Will Murray and Anthony Tollin.

"It was the face of a man long since dead! The thin lips were drawn away from skull-like teeth. The cheeks were sunken and leathery. Dank black hair lay matted thinly on a baldish scalp the color of old parchment. A living corpse in the costume of a gay Harlequin! With a wide-muzzled gun. And a jeering laugh that made the silence in the room crawl with menace." from Death's Harlequin
