"Altar of Death" (March 15, 1942)

Altar of Death
Hello Pulp Friends,

Today's episode of the SHadow has all the elements of those exotic mystery tales: a vulcano island with natives, drums beating and fires going by night, people disappearing (usually a couple, a man and a woman, every year during Girmet, "The Night That Eats Men"), human sacrifices, and, of course, The Shadow finding out if all this is really about a primitive god or something much more "material".

Enjoy the show and have a great (pulp) Sunday!
Francesco

Awesome, awesome, awesome!)
I can seriously relate, because I have "the day-job that eats men"!
Er...well, it may be different.
Anyway, thanks for this gem, Francesco! Always nice to come by here and pour a glass of pulp!)

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Dave :D Always great to have props by a pulp artist (and writer) like yourself :)

Cheers,
Francesco

I've just found your blog, and I really like the illos you're doing for the old Shadow shows. This one is particularly nice, with the Shadow silhouette in the clouds against the moon.
