Synopsis for "Death Turrets"

High over the countryside, they loomed ~ sentinels of the doom that was to befall those within! Only The Shadow could penetrate the death pall that hung like a shroud over the weird, castle-like mansion!



  • This is the only issue of The Shadow Magazine that used a photograph for the cover. Although the tagline under the photo displays the text: “THE SHADOW ON THE SCREEN—STARRING ROD LA ROCQUE,” the man in the photo is not Rod La Rocque, but is, instead, Bill Lawlor, art director for Street & Smith.
