The Shadow #2

Chinese Disks / Malmordo

by Maxwell Grant

The legendary Crimefighter battles Evil in TWO classic Pulp Adventures: "The Chinese Disks" and "Malmordo"

The greatest avenger from the legendary hero pulps returns in two moreclassic novels by his creator, Walter B. Gibson. The Shadow'scrime-fighting organization became fully-formed in The Chinese Disks, thenovel which introduces as agents cabby Moe Shrevnitz, reformed former-crooksHawkeye and Tapper, Pietro and the giant African Jericho Druke. The novel isa sequel to Gibson's first novel, The Living Shadow, and features the returnof The Shadow's first major foe, Diamond Bert Farwell. "Thus, The ChineseDisks is not only one of the most significant Shadow mysteries, but also oneof the most satisfying," observes pulp historian Will Murray in hishistorical commentary to the story.

Malmordo is the final Shadow novel completed by Walter Gibson before his 1946 departure following a contract dispute, and ended his initial 15-year run chronicling The Shadow's adventures. Murray observes, "In a very real sense, the series that had finally come together in The Chinese Disks culminated with Malmordo, one of GibsonĀ¹s top tales of the 1940s, and one which features the slimiest villain 'Maxwell Grant' ever created." THE SHADOW Volume Two features the original pulp covers by George Rozen and interior illustrations by Tom Lovell, who went on to become one of the 20th century's greatest illustrative painters.
