Garth Ennis takes on The Shadow!

January 16th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Dynamite Entertainment have announced a date for their ongoing The Shadow series… but that’s just the start of it!

The series will debut in April and will be penned by none other than Garth Ennis! Ennis will team up with  interior artist Aaron Campbell, and cover illustrators Alex Ross, Howard Chaykin, Jae Lee and John Cassaday on the title.

Ennis said:
“The Shadow is probably the last established character I like that I haven’t gotten around to writing yet, certainly on this side of the Atlantic.
“It makes a kind of bloody, bullet-riddled sense: I always had a feeling our paths would cross sooner or later.”

Campbell added:
“The Shadow is an awesome character in an awesome time. I mean what’s not to like? You have the old school mystique of eastern mysticism wrapped up with a badass gunslinger.”

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
