The Comicon Advent Calendar: Day 5 – The Shadow Knows… It’s Christmas

by Richard Bruton

Welcome, welcome one and all to day 5 of the Comicon Advent Calendar, our seasonal countdown of all things comics and Christmas! Today, we get a little pulp festive magic from Francesco Francavilla and Blood on Christmas, a Shadow tale…

Originally showing up in Francavilla’s Pulp Sundays in December 2007, it’s a complete tale in the silent tradition, remastered in 2013 for colour.

As he says, it’s something of a Margot Year Zero – with the girl in the tale set to become the future assistant to Lamont Cranston.
