Dynamite Announces a Second Shadow/Batman Cross-Over Event

Batman and The Shadow, two of comics’ most iconic characters, will again join forces to save the world this October as Dynamite Entertainment, DC Entertainment, and Conde Nast partner for a brand new, six-issue crossover event that will unite history’s most well-known vigilantes as they confront the World’s Greatest Evil! Writer Steve Orlando and artist Giovanni Timpano will team to tell this instantly classic tale of noir, mortality and generational heroes and villains, set to hit stores October 4th!

The World’s Greatest Mystery. The World’s Greatest Detective. They can barely stand each other, so how will they possibly deal with the World’s Greatest Evil? What legacy can two of the world’s most enduring icons of justice leave once they discover an ancient evil has been living inside the world they protect for centuries, attached to its heart. Can Batman and the Shadow save the world without killing it in the process?

Shadow/Batman is not the first time these iconic characters will join forces, as The Shadow appeared in two issues of Batman’s regular monthly comic in 1973 and 1974. Most recently, DC Entertainment, Conde Nast, and Dynamite Entertainment partnered in April 2017 to publish Batman/The Shadow, a six-issue mini-series from creators Scott Snyder, Steve Orlando and Riley Rossmo. The series, which has since been met with wide critical acclaim, is the thematic prequel to Dynamite’s new Shadow/Batman series.

The Shadow: Leviathan from Dynamite Entertainment and Condé Nast

This summer, Dynamite Entertainment and Condé Nast will welcome readers back into the know with the launch of their latest incarnation of the classic pulp character the Shadow, in The Shadow: Leviathan. Launching in August, the comic-book series will feature writer Si Spurrier and artist Daniel HDR, who will 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!

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 these 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.

The debut issue of The Shadow features a wide selection of cover variants, providing fans and retailers with the freedom of choice! The cover artwork features the talents of Kenneth Rocafort, interior artist Daniel HDR, Aaron Michael Kaluta, Brandon Peterson, Neal Adams, and Tyler Kirkham, respectively. Limited variant editions in “Black & White” and “Virgin Art” formats are also available as retailer incentives for comic shops that support the launch issue by achieving stocking thresholds.

The Shadow #1 is slated for release in August.
