From THIS! Archie Comics' THE SHADOW: The greatest bait-and-switch in comics history!

How did Archie's THE SHADOW go from this... THIS!

That's right, that flamboyantly costumed and caped character in blue and green is the very same Shadow.

Questions abound: Is The Shadow high? Is he out of his mind? Is it any wonder this comic book series died after only eight issues?

Nevertheless, this comic is my new obsession. Once you've seen The Shadow battle Shiwan Khan and Atilla the Hunter, descendants of Genghis Khan and Atilla the Hun, you've seen it all for sure!
