5.0 out of 5 stars A real gem! 28 Oct 2003
Format:Paperback
This book turned out to be so much more than I had hoped, containing information on all aspects of the Shadow. The book begins with Gibson's excellently written history of his writing of the shadow stories, has a list of Shadow novels, shows Shadow covers (many in color!), discusses the Shadow's agents, shows illustrations, and then has a never before published Shadow story: The Riddle of the Rangoon Ruby! Then the book covers the Shadow radio show, includes a list of all broadcasts, and has the scripts of two broadcasts (The Death House Rescue-1937, and the White Legion-1938). Then the Shadow movies are covered, and the Shadow comics; including a whole comic adventure entitled the Mystery of the Sealed Box. Finally there are notes on codes used by the Shadow, and various old-time Shadow merchandise.
See? Everything you could want! This is book is a real gem, and must have for any Shadow fan. I enjoyed Gibson's story of writing the Shadow beyond anything I could have imagined, and absolutely loved the Rangoon Ruby. I sincerely hope that they someday reissue this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential For Shadow Fans! 29 Mar 2006
By bOoKwOrM - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Written by Walter Gibson and Anthony Tollin, this gem of a book contains a wealth of essays,critical analyses of many aspects of the Shadow,and of course,there are plenty of pictures throughout(most pulp magazine covers are in black and white, only a select number are in color). This book also reprints a portion of a Shadow newspaper comic from the 40's(in black and white).

Lastly,the 'Scrapbook' contains a Shadow short story called "The Riddle of The Rangoon Ruby"(written by Walter Gibson, and appears nowhere else).

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for what it is 9 Mar 2014
By James D. Crabtree - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A lot of old material discussing the creation of the first Shadow stories, their artwork, a list of the original stories, examples of Shadow comics and material on the radio show. Great examples of artwork, radio scripts and INCREDIBLE detail by the original author and creator of the Shadow of how he came up with the first stories. I'm sure this something any Shadow fan would be interested in.

5.0 out of 5 stars fabulous great for everyone 15 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
It was a great book i didnt like The Shadow at first then i read this and i found The Shadow cool now im trying to get everything of The Shadow. Even my friends who didnt enjoy The Shadow found this interesting. My son liked The Shadow before I did so we actually got it for him and i started reading and I started enjoying it too. A must for fans and everyone. Walter Gipson is a great novelist (wrote the shadow magazine pulps) he was wonderful writer for The Shadow magazine pulps.
