    They just have to give this to Matt Wagner to write, don't they?

    Wagner on writing chores with Francavilla on art would be awesome.

    If they find someone as good as they picked for the Spider (David Liss), then this will be sweet.

    Also, Dynamite has to do this one thing. They have to do this in honor of the late Dave Stevens. Dave gave readers a "wink" to a certain pulp hero when Cliff went to New York and worked alongside the mysterious "Jonas" in the second part of the Rocketeer series. He just couldn't legally pull it off. They have to do a crossover between Dynamite and IDW and bring us THE lost tale of two unlikely heroes...



    The Rocketeer and the Shadow!

    For me, its gotta happen. Just something that Dave would have loved imo.

    Mr. Q
    I'd buy that.

    Of course, I might also buy this for completely different reasons...:

    Curious what characters do Dynamite have the rights to? I was thinking they could do a new take on Defenders of The Universe with Flash Gordon and the Phantom finding new members like the Shadow.

    I haven't picked up that many , but so far every title I have tried from Dynamite mostly their classic pulp heroes, were all set (for better or worse) in the right time period...

    Lone Ranger
    Zorro
    Matt Wagner's Year One Green Hornet
    Warlord Of Mars
    The exception being Last Phantom,which is a contemporary tale as the name implies, but I believe the Phantom has long been established by the author as a Legacy character passing the mantle to the next generation,- "...and my sons and their sons will follow me." So this made sense.
    And it looks like Flash Gordon will also be set in the right time period.

    I'm pretty confident The Shadow will be too.

    I believe they did pick up the Mandrake and subsequently Lothar license, which gives them the whole group. (not counting their made for tv kids)
    The thing with Defenders of the Earth is they were all King Feature properties, hence the group connection. The Shadow (to me anyway) would seem like an ill fit in that group.

    Can't wait for this. I've always loved The Shadow, and to have a brand new comic series is exciting!

    Advice: Be true to the character of the shadow. We want 'our grandfather's' shadow, not some stupid updating it.

    Be respective of the many fans out there. We aren't a half dozen old farts you can insult...
    i'll second that motion. Do it right or don't do it at all.

    This arrived on my doorstep yesterday and I flipped through it and found that I was really impressed by the artwork, but when I sat down and read the book today I can honestly say that this is probably Garth's best work since the late 90's or early 2000's. I was blown away at the characterization and the way the plot flowed through the pages, I also loved the gore within the artwork that really helped to bring this book to a new level of "awesome". Great stuff from Dynamite Entertainment, as per usual!
