Reading Room: THE SHADOW "Princess of Death"

...we promised you  a look at the purple and green-garbed Silver Age version...
You'll note a number of changes since The (Silver Age) Shadow's last appearance...
He's now a brunette, not blonde.
He's no longer using hypnotic powers to cloud mens' minds, preferring stealth.
He's wearing a green and purple skintight costume!
The art style has changed, and not for the better.
(Paul Reinman, who was also illustrating Archie's other superhero titles, has replaced John Rosenberger.)
However, the writer was still Robert Bernstein. In fact, either this tale, or its' companion from this never-reprinted issue was his last comic book work.
We'll be re-presenting the other, longer tale from Archie's The Shadow #3 in the near future.
I can hear the screams of anguish already!
for goodies featuring other Silver Age heroes, besides The Shadow!
