Via Comics Alliance (by way of Caleb Mozzocco) comes news that Garth Ennis, writer of Preacher, Hitman, Constantine and Punisher, is taking on the Shadow. It’s coming in April from Dynamite Comics, and it’s supposedly ongoing.
Ennis can certainly do the two-gun action bit, as befits the Master of Men. I don’t know how he’s going to work in blasphemy and anal rape, though. Put me down as optimistic.
As you may remember, the Shadow is my all-time favorite character, and the 90s Shadow Strikes (Gerard Jones & Eduardo Barretto) was one of the series that got me into comics. Also, it taught me how to do the scary laugh.
We did a gallery of The Shadow as part of Character Wednesday a few years ago.
