Hello there again my fine feathered comic book reading fans! I’m continuing the posts that discuss the new series launches from our favorite publishers of the illustrated page and while we’ve addressed the DC and Marvel stuff its now time to get to some of the awesome that is coming from the Dynamite Entertainment and Images Comics side of the fence. At first I was debating doing the both of these together but I felt in order to better quantify each side of the fence so we shall be doing the few titles from Dynamite Comics first and then in a few hours the post for Image Comics will go live. Let’s get on down to business.
SHADOW #1: For the better part of a century the Shadow’s sinister laughter brought the chill of fear to evil-doers – but in our modern times, the streets of Manhattan have gone largely silent. But he is not forgotten. Not by the people he’s saved. Mary Jerez, is one of those people. The Shadow saved her from a horrifying school shooting – Mary knows all too well what evil lurks in the hearts of men. So when a horribly burnt man – incredibly strong and fierce, despite his terrible injuries- arrives under her care as a resident at the hospital – she believes she knows who he is, too. Is this mysterious man actually the Shadow – and with Mary’s help, will evil-doers again know what it means to fear his terrible justice? Si Spurrier (X-Force, X-Men: Legacy, Judge Dredd) and Daniel HDR (Superman, Cyborg) bring the pulp icon into modern day in a tale full of deadly intrigue, gun-blazing action, and a study of the nature of evil!
