This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

The best introduction to The Shadow?

What would be a good introduction to the Shadow? The old pulp stories? The radio show? Specific comics? That movie from the 90s? Who knows? (well I guess you know who :p )
Well, truth is, I know virtually nothing about this franchise.

The old Pulp stories AND the Radio Show

Just found this one in the used section of the comics store. Love Kaluta's artwork here.

That was a pretty decent run.
