    Shadow (1986 DC Limited Series) 1

    In the 30's and 40's, millions of fans sat by their radios and read their pulp magazines, responding to those magic words 'Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men?' The Shadow knows. Mysteriously cloaked in black, able to cloud the minds of others, invisible at will, The Shadow was and is truly one of the all-time greats. Assisted only by his operatives, loyal men and women who used their work-a-day skills to aid him, The Shadow struck terror into the dusky souls of criminals. But that was more than forty years ago. The world has changed a lot since then. Writer/artist Howard Chaykin began to wonder, How would The Shadow exist in the world now? A world in the middle of a massive technological revolution...a world besieged by chaos and corruption? And: When someone begins to murder The Shadow's aged operatives, we get a chance to find out! And he's nothing like you'd expect! Tough, brutal violence underscores each page as The Shadow emerges from hiding to seek the murderer - no matter what the cost! The premiere issue of this 4-part mini-series is Howard Chaykin's first book since his acclaimed American Flagg. Chaykin's multiple talents explode on each page of this series as he writes, pencils, inks, and paints a spectacular cover to boot! Joined by letterer Ken Bruzenak, who worked with him on American Flagg, plus editor Andy Helfer, Chaykin makes this series an historic event. Deluxe format. Note: This book contains scenes of graphic violence. Not for the weak of heart Cover price $1.50.
