Enjoyable glimpse into the pulp world of 1930s courtesy of Venture publications and another great reproduction of The Shadow stories giving the reader a good feel for what it was like to read these stories some 80 years ago. This particular volume, the third I've read in the Venture Shadow series, makes a good case that these stories directly inspired The Batman.
Walter Brown Gibson (September 12, 1897-December 6, 1985) was an American author and professional magician best known for his work on the pulp fiction character The Shadow. Gibson, under the pen-name Maxwell Grant, wrote "more than 300 novel-length" Shadow stories, writing up to "10,000 words a day" to satisfy public demand during the character's golden age in the 1930s and 1940s.
