The early days of Lamont Cranston and Margo Lane‘s relationship continues as The Shadow hits the streets looking for answers about the oppressive force he feels lurking behind the gang war and Margo, in an attempt to prove her use to her scary new friend, decides to help the vigilante find missing crime boss Big Gun Massaretti who once tried to have the former lady of the evening thrown off a rooftop.
I’m very surprised that six issue into the eight-issue mini-series our hero is still largely blind to his true adversary. Given that only two issues remain I’m guessing the eventual confrontation between the two may be relatively short given that our hero has yet to even learn his name.
Issue #6 plays on a common damsel in distress theme as Margo takes a foolish chance that puts her in danger with The Shadow nowhere in sight. Since we know Ms. Lane isn’t destined to die, I’d expect The Shadow to make a miraculous save before returning to hunt down his true enemy. Worth a look.
