Synopsis for "The Sealed Box"

Within the sealed box was the key to a baffling mystery - and blood would run before The Shadow grasped its secret!


  • One of the few stories where Kent Allard appears as himself, the celebrated aviator.


  • It is mentioned in The Duende History of the Shadow Magazine that the cover for this issue was altered. It depicts a woman struggling with crook, her clothing coming loose. Wrapped around her waist is The Shadow's arm -- but where is his face? Seemingly, it is painted out for fear it would look like our hero was molesting the woman.
  • Interestingly, the cover image is from the story in the NEXT issue, RACKET TOWN, Shadow #140. No such incident happened in this story, but did happen in RACKET TOWN, where a thug tore Ruth Knightson's dress as the Shadow grabbed her to get her away from the battle.
