The Shadow Knows! by Berni Wrightson

Chicken or the egg time---the ad in Kamandi #2, or the fanzine cover? hhhmmmm.....


  1. Actually, it was Wrightson's "tryout" piece for The Shadow assignment...and he got the job!
    But...Berni had to drop it because he was already on Swamp Thing, and wasn't fast enough to pencil and ink two bi-monthly books!
    Wrightson suggested his Studio associate Mike Kaluta, and the rest is history!
    Wrightson did ink an issue over Kaluta's pencils, and helped out with other artists on a couple of other issues when Kaluta ran late.

  2. Thank you....thankyouverymuch! Yeah, I always thought The Shadow #3 was a beautiful book
