Noblesse Oblige! Privilege entails responsibility, and requires a person who holds an elevated status fulfills certain responsibilities -- an attitude illustrated here by fourteen stories in which some of the bravest heroes of popular fiction display their true nobility by acting beyond reproach!

The Phantom Angel must find out who killed one of the Seven Dwarves... Arsène Lupin borrows a page from Maigret to uinmask a villain... Doctor Omega ponders over the schemes of Professor Moriarty...  Felifax crosses path with Doctor Moreau... Young Robur learns how to become a Conqueror in the Old West... Doctor Cornelius returns in Sarajevo... The Nyctalope starts a revolution to overthrow a future dictatorship... And Fantômas finally meets his match...  All this, plus Judex, Irene Adler, Doctor Jekyll, the Timeslip Troopers, the Sea Hawk and the ever-monstrous Skull Island!

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