Believe me, the cover of the first issue, shown above, doesn't do it justice. ;-)
It's based on a series of new novels from Belmont Books that ran from 1964-67.
The first was by the pulp Shadow's creator, Walter Gibson. The rest were by Dennis Lynds.
None of these books have ever been reprinted, either!
Here's the covers for the complete run of the paperbacks, in chronological order...
|The ONLY time Gibson DOESN'T use the MAXWELL GRANT pen-name!|
