"The speaker rose and raised the lantern, hooking it to a wire that was suspended from the low ceiling. The range of the light increased. Under its glow the shadows of the three men became grotesque. They were long, sinister shadows. The profile of the ape-faced man was plainly visible upon the floor. Beyond those dark, moving silhouettes, a black blot projected from the corner of the room.
It, too, seemed like a human shadow, except that it was motionless."
-"The Eyes of The Shadow"

The Shadowcast will soon return from our post-season break with an all new season! The theme of Season 2 will be "The PULP Avenger!" A comprehensive review and retrospective of the first several Shadow pulps, beginning with "The Eyes of The Shadow" and concluding with pulp classic "Gangdom's Doom!"

Hopefully, this season should serve as the ideal introduction to The Shadow pulps for new readers. Not to worry, for the rest of you less inclined to read The Shadow's prosaic exploits, we will also be covering various comics and radio shows in the very same episodes. So there's something for everyone!
You won't want to miss it, agents. So keep an eye on this space, and your subscription boxes!
