The Shadow

and Frank Robbins. Frank Robbins was one of those artists that as a kid I wasn't crazy about his work but over time I've grown to love it and he's one of my favorites of the Caniff school of cartoonists. My friend Steve Banes reminded me of these and I really love them. I love the deep shadows and exaggerated poses  in places, his women and he does great cloak folds:-) There's just some images inside of the Shadow that I think are amazing.  I prefer these to the Mike Kaluta issues these days and its a Joe Kubert that did the cover for the last one, the other 3 are by Robbins.
The good news is you can read a whole story yourself at The Horrors of it All.
