Preview - The Shadow: Year One #1

The Shadow has endured, both as a character and as an icon of justice and all that good stuff. He's a character who's never too dated or old to revisit and Dynamite Entertainment is all over that with the upcoming The Shadow: Year One #1, written by Matt Wagner and illustrated by Wilfredo Torres.

Shrouded in mystery, The Shadow's origins have been explored and hinted at over the years…but never fully revealed. Much is known of Kent Allard/Lamont Cranston’s years spent in the Orient and Central America—wherein he gains his powers and purpose…but not how he first developed his persona as the Master of Darkness. The new limited series will explore the dynamic events that first drew Cranston back to the States, how he first met his companion and lover, Margo Lane, how he began to assemble his vast network of agents and how he first adopted the famous black hat and cloak as his alter-ego's disguise—all secrets that, up until now…only The Shadow knew.

The first issue hits stores February 20 with interiors below.
