Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!
Dynamite Entertainment has announced an new ongoing series with The Shadow beginning April 2012. To spice this up a bit, they have Garth Ennis on board as the writer. Ennis will be joined by artist Aaron Campbell and the series will feature covers by Alex Ross, Howard Chaykin, Jae Lee and John Cassaday.
The series will be set in 1938 and the Shadow will retain the pulp magazine/radio feel but told in a way only Garth Ennis can.
Here's what Ennis had to say:
The Shadow is probably the last established character I like that I haven't gotten around to writing yet, certainly on this side of the Atlantic. It makes a kind of bloody, bullet-riddled sense: I always had a feeling our paths would cross sooner or later.
Check out the other covers for issue #1.
In the first issue of the ONGOING SERIES, it's 1938 and The Shadow returns in a tale of blazing action and deadly intrigue, as a night of carnage on the New York waterfront plunges the mysterious vigilante into a conspiracy involving the fate of the world itself. As storm clouds gather across the globe, American Military Intelligence meets with a certain Lamont Cranston, determined to beat a host of spies and assassins to the greatest prize of all... but what that might be, only the Shadow knows. Be sure to get The Shadow #1 in April 2012!
