Crossover Covers: The Shadow: Year One
The Shadow makes his debut in New York, and battles an old foe that is precipitating a gang war. Journalist Maxwell Grant offers to be the Shadow’s biographer, saying “Samuel Johnson had Boswell! Holmes had Watson!” The details about Kent Allard and Margo Lane’s families given in this series conflict with their family histories in the CU. Additionally, the Maxwell Grant seen here is clearly not Walter Gibson, who in both the CU and “our” universe wrote the Shadow novels under the Grant pseudonym. Because of these factors, I consider this series an AU.
