PRAISE FOR THE SHADOW #1!

Dynamite Entertainment once again brings a classic pulp hero back to comic shops with this brand new series. I have to admit I have a rather limited exposure to The Shadow as a character beyond the few issues I read of Howard Chaykin’s series years ago at DC Comics. I come into this new series from Garth Ennis and Aaron Campbell wide-eyed and curious to really get to know who The Shadow is and the world that he operates within.

Ennis wastes no time in opening this issue with a clear understanding to what the world has been through leading up to the present day of this series. Times have definitely been gruesome and troubling to say the least, and Ennis shows how The Shadow has placed himself in all of it. The opening narration, or internal monologue, from The Shadow shows the reader what his mindset is like against these evil forces in this world and then drops readers right in the middle of one of The Shadow’s missions.

The pacing of the issue is good and does not over complicate anything, but gives the reader just enough information about these characters to help them move along to the next panel, page, and scene. The more interesting character of this issue is not The Shadow himself, but more his true identity – Lamont Cranston, who is arrogant in a way that makes him partial a jerk but confident in his surroundings. The conversations Cranston has with various characters in this issue as himself are strong and provide an interesting look at his character in contrast to The Shadow.

The art in this issue by Aaron Campbell, Carlos Lopez, and Rob Steen is strong and sets a strong mood and expresses the time period well. The art never falters from the first to the last page remaining strong. Dynamite has a knack of putting great talent on their books and the work of Campbell, Lopez, and Steen prove that.

Readers will not be able to help themselves by getting pulled into this world of The Shadow. Dynamite has taken a number of iconic pulp characters and made them come alive again for an all new audience as well as those of us who have enjoyed them in the past. The Shadow is a book I will easily recommend to everyone I meet.

Baltimore Comic-Con is coming up this weekend from September 6-8, and in their yearly offering of a yearbook featuring the work of their exhibiting comics creators, they’re going the extra mile this year by donating a portion of the proceeds from the yearbook to a support fund for Seth Kushner's battle with leukemia.

Seth is the pop culture photographer behind Leaping Tall Buildings and comics writer on Schmuck who has long been a supporter of the comics-creator driven con.

The theme for the yearbook for 2014 is Matt Wagner’s Grendel and supporting characters, and Baltimore Comic-Con will also be hosting The BCC Yearbook: Grendel Original Art auction on September 6 at 5 PM to support Seth’s treatment.

Thanks to the sharp ears of CBR, and by way of Bleeding Cool, we could have absolute confirmation of new Doctor Strange and Black Panther movies coming from Marvel Studios.

Or it may have been the slip of tongue from a guy who once ID’d Bruce Banner, whom he created, as BOB Banner. (That is where the moniker Robert Bruce Banner later came from, BTW.)

At Fan Expo Canada, Stan “The Man” Lee was quoted as saying:

“We haven’t made a Black Widow movie but she’s been in some of our movies, and she will be featured more prominently as we move forward. And the chances are she will have her own movie because eventually all the superheroes are going to have their own movies. They are already working on Ant-Man, Doctor Strange and the Black Panther and there are others I am not allowed to talk about.”

So the Black Panther is a movie he IS allowed to talk about? Ant-Man is of course in production now with Peyton Reed directing and Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lilly starring. And the rumor mill on Doctor Strange has been turning fast with casting talk from Jack Huston to Joaquin Phoenix and of course Scott Derrickson is attached to direct.

So does this mean that Black Panther is moving forward as well? Or perhaps this time for Stan Lee it was more than ‘Nuff Said?
