Howard Chaykin Returns to THE SHADOW

The writer/artist returns to the character after nearly three decades!

Howard Chaykin is diving back into The Shadow's universe as both the writer and artist for an all-new miniseries. He was lending his talent to create covers for the character, but THE SHADOW: MIDNIGHT IN MOSCOW will be his first time writing the character in nearly thirty years.

The new book picks up thirty years before his BLOOD & JUDGEMENT series and will reveal the tale behind the character's disappearance in 1949. Nick Barrucci, the CEO and Publisher of Dynamite, says, "Howard Chaykin's return to the character is going to be phenomenal."

Will you be purchasing this when it eventually comes out, Viners? Speak your mind below.

About time. I so loved Chaykin's mini-series from the 80s. I would love to read how Howard would continue that tale (more so considering what Helfer did with the follow-up Shadow ongoing) but a period piece sounds even better.

I love The Shadow but Chaykin's art is horrible now. No thanks.

@nightfang:

The Shadow is Batman's Daddy.

Howard Chaykin

is my least favorite person on the Shadow. The Old Chaykin shadow 80's (?) stuff was crap IMO.

He doesn't know how to draw the damn scarf!!
