"Murders in Wax" (Jul 24, 1938)

Hounds in the Hills
The ShadowAfter the poison and the sniper episodes of last week, here's another tale of revenge and murders. In this case the list of victims is full of main politics figures, which will lead the Shadow to find out who is the brain behind the "killing hand". The settings of the wax museum gives to the story a nice horror vibe (who can't forget the many wax museum movies with Vincent Price?) and I almost wish the story would have been even more in that direction. Enjoyable nonetheless so listen to the episode by clicking on the link below.

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

this is one of the best Shadow panels ever. You have everything staged to draw your eye away from the Shadow. If it wasn't for the spot of red, invisible. This is just an awesome piece.

Merry Christmas Francesco, thanks for treating us to some great Shadow illustrations.

Thank you, Ilia :) This is one of my favorite as well and I am glad you dig the composition of it.

Hope you and yours are having a great Holiday season :)
