My Article "Captain's Library: THE SHADOW 'Vampire Hall' "...at SOMEONE ELSE'S blog!

I posted this article about multiple version of this Shadow story in 2013...

This story of The Shadow vs a vampire was so popular it was done three times...
...first as a Shadow pulp novel by Walter Gibson in 1942, then as the 1943 comic story you're about to read which combines elements of both the pulp and radio show versions of Lamont Cranston and his alter-ego...

...and to complete the cycle, this story was adapted into the September 1946 season opener of The Shadow radio show, entitled "Vampires Prowl at Night"!
...so imagine my surprise to see it...verbatim...posted in 2021...eight years later...HERE!
The "author" didn't even provide a link to my original post!

Captain's Library STREET FIGHTER: THE BATTLE FOR SHADALOO Part 3

...Shadaloo's demented warlord, General M Bison, holds 63 Allied Nations relief workers hostage, demanding $2 billion or he'll kill them all within 72 hours.
AN Colonel Guile, seeking clues to their whereabouts, captures one of Bison's lieutenants, Sagat, his gang, and two con men who were trying to trick the crimelord into buying weapons...which were really toys!
Guile offers the con men, Ken and Ryu a pardon if they'll escape with Sagat's crew and lead them to Bison's HQ.
To make it look convincing, Guile fakes his own death at the hands of the con men, who get away with the gangsters.
But, nosy reporter Chun-Li Zang may screw up the proceedings...
