Force Majeure! Two words which convey the notion of catastrophe, a sense of urgency, earth-shaking events when only the greatest of champions can successfully face off with the most cataclysmic of threats!

Here is Gilgamesh, the Lord of Bronze, challenged by the Devil Doctor... Arsene Lupin relentlessly pursued by the invincible Adam Adamant... The indomitable Joseph Rouletabille facing the most evil threats on Earth... Professor Lindenbrock and Ned Land fighting against all odds at the Earth's Core... The Nyctalope battling the Teutonic Gods themselves and Captain Vampire defying the entire population of the Vampire City! All this and Judex, Felifax and the Doctor Omega all involved in the fights of the lives!

In this eleventh volume of Tales of the Shadowmen, the only anthology dedicated to international heroes and villains of pulp literature, writers from Australia, England, France and the United States, pay homage to those great champions and master criminals who enchanted our adolescence.
