The Flash and The Shadow



I have enjoyed The Shadow's appearance in various comic books, and I like the Alec Baldwin movie version, even if it is a bit cheesy in retrospect.  For me, though, The Shadow made the biggest impact with his classic radio series.  I remember my father would bring cassette tapes with The Shadow, Mystery Theater and X Minus One on camping trips and I would listen to them in my sleeping bag.  Those were a lot of fun and always got my imagination going.

I know that Flash image. Alex Ross's variation of the Flash Comics #1 cover. Used for Overstreet's Comic Book Price Guide.

I am a big fan both The Shadow and The Justice Society, so really loved todays cover.
Also had another team-up idea to pitch your way... what about Frank Castle (The Punisher) and Richard Castle from the tv show Castle?? Are they perhaps related??
Later...... jak-el

I've gotten that one a few times... are there Castle comics?

Mike Shirley said...

There are Castle comics from Marvel... but they're based on the character's Derrick Storm novels

How about a smallville/Buffy crossover.

Watching Arrow and they kept calling Deathstroke "Mr Wilson" when he appeared in Starling City. So my suggestion would be Deathstroke vs Dennis the Menace.

You can download a lot of old Shadow radio episodes as MP3s here.

@Brad Mengel: You could throw in The Falcon while you're at it.

Good thought pblfsda we might as well add in Deadpool, Ravenger and Jericho male it a full on Wilson Family reunion.

You know that Jack London wrote a science fiction story called "The Shadow and the Flash" about rival inventors trying to perfect invisibility, right?

I do now, that's cool!

Excellent depiction! :-D

It makes me wish these two could team up for real. Like, say, against Per Degaton or Vandal Savage.
