Garth Ennis' The Shadow
Here's some interesting news in the comic world. According to Newsarama, Garth Ennis has signed on, along with artist Aaron Campbell, to do an ongoing comic series based on the pulp hero, The Shadow. Ennis has written some of my all time favorite comics (Preacher, The Punisher, Just A Pilgrim, 303, The Boys) and the idea of him tackling The Shadow is incredibly appealing. But I also have doubts with the publisher, Dynamite. They've acquired the rights to a lot of cool characters, but rarely do I feel that their interpretations live up to their creations. Fingers crossed here though. I definitely dig these four covers being done for the first issue.
