    Charles Coll - The Shadow Annual Pulp Cover Original Art (Street & Smith, 1947). The Master of Darkness, the Shadow, stand guard over the city, like a vengeful crime-busting wraith, in this moonlit scene for 1947's Shadow Annual. Charles Coll drew the Golden Age Shadow comic book, and he also painted several 'forties Shadow pulp covers. This moody gouache on illustration board painting has an image area of 17" x 23". The illustration board has heavy edge wear, several glue stains (outside of the image area), and there's paint flaking at the bottom of the piece; otherwise, the art is in Very Good condition. This will make a spectacular wall piece for a Shadow fan!
