"The Shadow" first became famous as the compelling narrator to a crime and detective story radio series in 1930; this eventually led to the creation of a magazine series featuring The Shadow as the lead character in new detective tales that ran from 1931 to 1949. The character still appears in new stories sporadically. According to one author of strange matters, The Shadow may also make actual appearances in a former home of his chief author.
