Shadow9THE SHADOW DOUBLE NOVEL v.9
"FORESHADOWING THE BATMAN"
VARIANT SPECIAL EDITION!

The book that rewrote the history of Batman is reissued in the first Shadow variant edition as "The Knight of Darkness" returns in two historic novels that gave birth to "The Dark Knight." First, a powerful new underworld kingpin crosses swords with The Shadow in "Lingo," one of Walter Gibson's all-time masterpieces which inspired Batman's "Batarang."

In "Partners of Peril" by Theodore Tinsley, Lamont Cranston investigates chemical syndicate murders in the crime thriller that was adapted by Bill Finger and Bob Kane as Batman's debut adventure in Detective Comics #27. This extra-length volume also reprints Tinsley's "The Grim Joker," a 1936 tale introducing a clown-faced crime boss called "The Joker." PLUS: Will Murray documents the Shadowy origins of The Batman, and Anthony Tollin chronicles how "Partners in Peril" was adapted as the first Batman story.

This special variant edition leads off with the classic George Rozen cover painting that many consider the definitive portrait of The Shadow, and also reprints all the original interior illustrations by Tom Lovell including a dynamite two-page spread dropped from the original Street & Smith pulp. . Softcover, 7x10, black and white w/ color cover.
