Reading Room: DOC SAVAGE & THE SHADOW "Case of the Shrieking Skeletons" Conclusion

Art by Stan Manoukian and Dave Stevens
The plot's a bit convoluted, but you can re-read it from the beginning with Part 1 HERE, Part 2 HERE, and Part 3 HERE.
Right now, all you need to know is that Doc Savage and The Shadow have been taken prisoner by an alliance of Nazis and gangsters who are using genetically-modified humans turned into giant monsters who then deteriorate into shambling skeletal zombie-like creatures.
But holding the Man of Bronze and the Master of Darkness is another matter...
Writer Steve Vance tossed in a kool Easter Egg...Professor Reinstein himself, and the "secret government project"!
If you're a fan of a certain Star-Spangled Avenger, you'll recognize the scientist's name!
Professor Reinstein did receive a position at a government facility where he perfected his formula...
 But Professor Reinstein's legacy lives on...
