As The Shadow investigates The Light’s first victim in hopes of finding clues to the vigilante’s identity, Margo Lane does a little poking around at the hospital where the latest victim somehow met his horrific end in a locked and guarded room not realizing her scandalous behavior has brought Margo to the attention of The Light and made The Shadow’s companion her next intended victim.
The issue also includes flashbacks to Sister Esclarmonde’s strict upbringing and the sense of unwavering justice and brutal vengeance that was instilled in her at a young age eventually leading to the creation of The Light. Just how she acquiring her unique skills that (at least so far) even The Shadow cannot match is still yet to be seen.
Margo’s obvious overacting aside, the issue works to continue to flesh out the latest villain to come to the attention of The Shadow as well as but Lamont Cranston’s one true friend in deadly jeopardy. For fans.
