One of the first pulp heroes I was introduced to as a wee lad was Lamont Cranston, The Shadow. I found this awesome 60’s retro styling of the crime fighter by Trisha Toms that I just had to share.

What Evil Lurks in the Hearts of Men??

The Shadow Knowwwws!!! HAHAHAHAHAA!

My brother’s favorite dude leaping over rooftops avoiding gunfire. Run Shadow!! Then turn and KILL THEM ALL!

This is the old pulp novel version. Of course he has the awesome color scheme and hero scarf.

Man I like him so much!

I like him too, Trish. Thanks for the awesome!

    I love the Orson Wells radio Shadow. The movies, not so much. Where is the new Shadow movie?
