The family that owns Archie Comics also owned paperback publisher Belmont Books, which licensed The Shadow for a series of new novels under the Maxwell Grant name!Walter Gibson wrote the first one in classic 1940s pulp style, but Dennis Lynds, who replaced him for the rest of the run went for a combo of the radio version of the character set present-day (1960s) in the James Bond/Man from U.N.C.L.E. world of spies and way-out gadgetry!http://atocom.blogspot.com/2013/09/pow-thwok-biff-holy-heroes-its-shadow.html
DC's Shadow series also had a "dead end" cliffhanger and was one of my favorites from the late 80's. Miss Helfer's take on the character and his supporting cast. It was very off-beat.
