Crossover Cover: The Society of United Magicians

In this story, which takes place in 1936, the Shadow battles a group of corrupt magicians who are attempting to force Bess Houdini to contact the spirit of her late husband Harry, seeking secrets he has learned on the other side. A poster for Mandrake the Magician is seen in the Society’s headquarters. It is also revealed that Houdini is the one who taught the Shadow the art of escapology.

  1. I suppose I should mention that Walter Gibson knew Houdini and had been his ghostwriter.
