Synopsis for "The Shadow's Shadow"
An International criminal, Felix Zubian, trails The Shadow. It is revealed that during WWI, Zubian learned of an aviator in the air forces of the United States, one called "The Black Eagle," because of his penchant for flying at night. Zubian believes he has found the aviator who has now taken on a new identity as The Shadow!
- Reprinted as Pyramid Books #16.

- Diamond Bert Farwell appeared in the first issue of The Shadow Magazine. His final appearance will be in "The Chinese Disks."
- Harry Vincent and Detective Joe Cardona meet for the first time.
- In this issue, Rutledge Mann's office is described as being in the Grandville Building. It should be the Badger Building, as it was Claude Fellows who worked at the Grandville Building.
- During their final confrontation, the villain, Zubian, stares into the face of The Shadow — not the disguised features of Lamont Cranston or Henry Arnaud, but the visage of The Shadow himself. The story was a precursor to The Shadow's true identity revealed in "The Shadow Unmasks."
