The Shadow was created in 1930 as the narrator for a radio show
that dramatized stories from Detective Story magazine.
The character became more popular than the shows he introduced, and soon The Shadow magazine was born.
The Shadow radio show appeared in 1937, with Orson Welles as one of the early Shadows.
This episode, the Gibbering Things, was originally broadcast on September 26, 1943.
