The Shadow #1 Goes to Second Print from Dynamite Entertainment

The Shadow #1 has sold out through Diamond Comics Distributors, and we're going to a second printing on #1.  The second printing cover for The Shadow #1 will feature a brand-new cover by Eisner nominated cover artist, Francesco Francavilla!

In the first issue of the The Shadow #1, 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!

Meanwhile, The Shadow #2 is nearly sold out and will have a second printing upon it selling-out!  And when we release the 2nd print cover to The Shadow #2, it will also feature a new cover by Francesco Francavilla!

 In The Shadow #2, Lamont Cranston and Margo Lane fly west on Pan Am's fabulous China Clipper- but the golden age of air travel might just mean fiery death above the clouds for our heroes. In Shanghai, Major Tateo Kondo of Japanese military intelligence puts his own plans in motion, while his American counterparts struggle to catch up. The Shadow battles aerial assassins and worse, in part two of the six-part The Fire Of Creation.

Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows! The Shadow returned to comic stores written by the man born to write him - Garth Ennis. The artist joining Garth will be Aaron Campbell. Issue #1 features covers by Alex Ross, Howard Chaykin, Jae Lee and John Cassaday!  Issue #2 features covers by fan favorite artists Alex Ross, Howard Chaykin, Ryan Sook, Jae Lee and John Cassaday. Make sure to get The Shadow #1 and #2, now that copies are being made more readily available!

 "We want to thank the fans and publishers for supporting The Shadow #1!  We also want to thank the creators - Garth Ennis and Aaron Campbell - for such a superb job with the series.  It's gratifying to see fan and retailer support on such an iconic character on such an important launch for Dynamite!" states Dynamite Publisher Nick Barrucci.
