THE SHADOW Volume 24: Washington Crime & Quetzal

"As you sow evil, so shall you reap evil. Crime does not pay. The Shadow Knows!" The Dark Avenger returns in two riveting espionage thrillers by Walter B. Gibson writing as Maxwell Grant.

First, The Shadow teams up with America's top secret agent to combat a beautiful international spy and Washington Crime.

Then, in a shadowy sequel, the U.S. State Department sends El Ombre to Mexico to prevent the foreign agent code-named Quetzal from selling the blueprints for a top-secret military installation to an enemy power.

This classic reprint also features both color pulp covers by George Rozen, the classic interior illustrations by Edd Cartier, Shadowing the 1960s Spy Craze by Anthony Tollin and commentary by pulp historian Will Murray.

Softcover, $12.95

DOC SAVAGE Volume 23: Fantastic Island & Danger Lies East

The pulp era's greatest action hero returns in epic tales of international intrigue by W. Ryerson Johnson and Lester Dent (writing as Kenneth Robeson). First, the disappearance of Johnny Littlejohn leads the Man of Bronze and the beautiful Pat Savage to a madman's deadly Fantastic Island in the epic pulp novel that TIME observed: "Ian Fleming obviously ransacked when he wrote Dr. No."
Then, in Danger Lies East, Doc Savage goes undercover for the State Department to prevent a Middle East holy war.
BONUS STORY: Talking Toad, Lester Dent's first Gadget Man story from the pages of Crime Busters. This instant collector's item showcases the classic color pulp covers by Walter M. Baumhofer and Walter Swenson, and also features all the original interior illustrations by Paul Orban and Edd Cartier, and historical commentary by Will Murray, author of seven Doc Savage novels.
