At Long Last !! The Shadow's True Identity Is Revealed!! Apr 22, 2008
At long, long last someone has reprinted the 1937 Shadow novel( and its immediate sequel) that revealed the core mystery of the Shadow's identity, Kent Allard, WWI ace aviator and explorer. Never reprinted until now this is the most eagerly awaited of all the Shadow novels in the Nostalgia Ventures series. So eagerly awaited that the first print is apparently sold out. A five-star for what it is not for the great writing or plot, The Shadow Unmasks, is the star of this collection. The Yellow Band is a weaker entry in the series but features both Kent Allard and Lamont Cranston. There were other Shadow identites( Henry Arnaud, George Clarendon, Fritz the janitor, etc.) but these are the two primary alter egos and this collection is at last available. Thank you, Nostalgia Ventures!
