The Shadow #22

The Shadow's whirlwind world tour makes a stop in the jungles of Guatamala where the vigilante's search for answers concerning the ring will have to be put on hold as The Shadow teaches some cooperate workers that deforesting the land of the Xinca tribe and kidnapping their chief will not be tolerated.

Most of the first-half of the issue is relatively uneventful as the youthful enthusiasm of two of the younger members of the tribe get their elder taken captive. Luckily for them, the legendary protector shows up to dispense a little justice.

By the end of the issue The Shadow is prepared to return to New York which brings up an interesting point. Although it has showed off the character in various locales, while providing bread crumbs to the mysterious vigilante's past, the trip is actually a complete failure as The Shadow learns nothing of interest in any of these stops. The final stop on his journey is the least interesting of the bunch, so its probably a good time to get him back to New York City. For fans.
