... and a full-page ad for the S&S line-up of comics, hailed as non-lurid and twice as thrilling ... and, of course, none of these series are really sought after by and large today -

I was very fortunate to pick up this rare 1940 Shadow Cardboard a Advertising sign.  
 

Many of these advertising signs nearly one of a kind as most have been destroyed.

This one is 10 1/2” x 22” and is cardboard.

It is the only known example!

I now have 19 original Shadow advertising signs in the 1930s and 40s.

I will post a better picture when I get it properly framed etc.

Not "lurid"?  I beg to differ...

Just picked up my second example of the ultra rare late 1930’s  Shadow Hypno-Coin sponsored by Blue Coal.

Most of the 1940s covers are an anti-climax after the 1930s ones, but Rozen returned to greatness for this one!

... and the grade of Dwight's stuff :x GOD BLESS....
