The Red Blot and The Voodoo Master Mar 25, 2007
What I knew of The Shadow was from listening to Old Time Radio tapes. I was amazed to find that he was not just Cranston, but several other indivisuals. The Red Blot - what a twist!!!. The Voodoo Master - very good. I am amazed (that word again!) with the great plots.
Who knows what evil? Feb 6, 2007
The Voodoo Master is one of the very best Shadow tales and these new double volumes are excellently produced. Highly recommended all vols, as well as the Doc Savage reprints from the same publisher.
The Shadow sees RED Feb 2, 2007
The third book in the series of new reprints of the classic pulp novels of the 1930's focuses on two criminal masterminds who use red in their evil schemes. This is a 5-star book. I rated it incorrectly by accident.
The Reb Blot, the first story in this book presents the Shadow, and Detecive Joe Cardona, with a mystery where crimes occur and only a mysterious red blot on a piece of paper is left in the aftermath. Criminals get into and out of locations that are fully surrounded by police, embarrassing the police detective and puzzling even the Shadow. How are they able to repeatedly escape directly under the nose of the law? Only the Shadow knows and can stop the schemes of the criminal the papers are calling the Red Blot.
The second story is my favorite Shadow story I have ever seen, in any form, comics, radio, novels or anything in between. Our heretofore undauntable hero meets a voodoo cult that not only manages to halt the Shadow's plan, but actually injure and take the Shadow out of the picture. The following day, the Shadow awakens to hear his physician being kidnapped by the Voodoo Master's thugs. Wounded and weak, what can even the Shadow do against the criminal who can create zombies from living men?
