Love this issue of The Shadow, not least because it sports ( yes, I'm saying it ) one of the top 10 covers of the Bronze Age.
It's easy to overlook Frank Robbins' Shadow, following on as it did from Mike Kaluta's groundbreaking run, especially as poor old Frank STILL divides opinion as to the merits of his artwork. But I'm increasingly of the opinion that anything by Robbins is to be applauded, and with something he was perfect for, like here, that's even more the case.
Yeah, I guess Denny O' Neil's script is a little hokey, but you won't care, as Frank was born to draw this time period, and the whole thing drips with atmosphere and moves like a freight train.
Plus, who can resist a spooky hero who spouts lines like: 'You fired first! You CHOSE this fate!'
