David F. Walker is working on the second Shaft miniseries for Dynamite, Imitation of Life. Here the writer talks to Byron Brewer about the series, the character and working with Dietrich Smith. Cover art by Matthew Clarke.

Shaft Imitation 03 cover

BYRON BREWER: By April and issue #3, David, you are at the penultimate book in this Shaft saga? Without spoilers, can you compare your first Shaft series with this one?

DAVID F. WALKER: The first series was meant to be an introduction to John Shaft, both to people that already know the character and to those that either didn’t know him or only knew of him. He’s a very iconic character that is best known for a handful of images and the theme song to a movie. I can’t tell you how many people I’ve encountered that didn’t know there were a series of novels. Most people just think Shaft came from the movies and the TV show, where he existed as a fully formed character, with no real back-story. My goal with the first series was to paint a portrait of the character we would all come to know. This second series is more of the John Shaft people got to know in the original books and movies. He’s established as a detective, kind of famous, and a badass. At the same time, I’m showing aspects of him from the novels that never made it into the films. There aren’t a lot of black characters in comics that have much by way of depth, and I wanted to do my best to rectify that with Shaft.

BB: In #3, the police bring our hero in for questioning. That move in comics, for some reason, always reminds me of the early days of Luke Cage’s story. Can you compare and contrast these two characters, unbreakable skin and super-strength aside on Power Man’s part?

DFW: Both are characters who came from the streets, got into trouble with the law, and found an opportunity to redeem themselves. Cage is a Shaft-like character, in that he was created shortly after Shaft came out, and is a reflection of the blaxploitation craze of the time, though I suspect that Cage is more of an offshoot of the work of Chester Himes than anyone else. If Himes had written a comic book, it would’ve been Luke Cage: Hero for Hire. One of the things I find interesting is that Shaft and Cage are both characters that can move through the world of law and order or the world of crime and corruption with equal ease. They are characters that know how to exist in multiple worlds, which in some ways is the story of the black existence in America.

BB: In a non-spoilery manner, can you give us any hints if the case Shaft is brought in on overlaps with his film consultant gig?

DFW: Of course they do; that’s a classic trope of many detective stories. The key here is how Shaft solves the initial case—or if he solves it at all. This story was really meant to do two things, and neither of those was about Shaft solving a mystery. The first was to have him start to work through a character flaw that he has in the novels. I won’t say what that flaw is, but hopefully readers will pick up on it, because it says a lot about the quality of his character. The other thing I was trying to do with this story is make fun of how black life and the black experience are represented in film.

BB: David, you have been praiseworthy of the work of artist Dietrich Smith. Would you like to share another Shaft saga or two with him behind the pencil?

DFW: Of course. I’d love to work with Dietrich again. I’d also love to work with Bilquis Evely again. And there is a long list of other artists I’d love to see drawing Shaft. There are also some other writers I’d love to see tackle him. Gary Phillips is an incredible crime novelist who’s written comics, and he would write an amazing Shaft series. As much as I love the character, I think it would be great to see other creators contribute to his adventures.

Dynamite; $3.99 According to Thomas Wolfe, “You can’t go home again.” But Mr. Wolfe didn’t mention anything about going home to your past. In the first issue of Twilight Zone a successful writer flies back to his hometown for a book signing. What he finds is more than he anticipated when he finds himself face to face with his younger self. Upon encountering his younger self, he must decide if he should help the troubled, abused boy or leave him to suffer knowing what the future holds after that suffering is endured. The story written by Mark Rahner is very interesting both for its philosophical and ethical quandary. The question posed to this man is one anybody would struggle to answer. On top of that is the eerie, unsettling feeling leading up to these moments. The weight of the title is enough to warn readers that this plane ride will not be the usual trip. Edu Menna’s art aides the story by drawing characters with haggard visages, setting the tone for a story both complicated and thought provoking. This first issue comes with covers by Guiu Vilanova, Francesco Francavilla, Jay Shaw, and Jonathan Lau.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 MEREDITH FINCH IS JOINED BY ARTIST VICENTE CIFUENTES
FOR NEW XENA SERIES!
  Highly-Anticipated Series to Launch in February 2018


November 17, 2017, Mt. Laurel, NJ:  Dynamite Entertainment, a leading publisher of English language comic books and graphic novels, is proud to announce they have signed Spanish artist Vicente Cifuentes to serve as artist on their highly-anticipated upcoming Xena series, joining writer Meredith Finch (Wonder Woman, Rose) on the project on the heels of the New Jersey Comic Expo. Based on the strong female role-model from one of television's greatest fantasy adventure programs, the new Xena series will debut in February 2018.
Artist Vicente Cifuentes says, "What can I say? When I was young I watched the Xena series, and grew up following her adventures. I´m a huge fan of fantasy and medieval stories, and Xena had it all! I am so grateful for the opportunity to work on this series, and can't wait to make Xena's comeback even stronger than ever!" Vicente Cifuentes is a Spanish cartoonist and colorist born in September 1979 in Albacete. Since childhood, he wanted to be a cartoonist. Very early, he participated in several drawing competitions, he won many and decided to embrace this as his professional career. He began by drawing illustrations for the Spanish versions of Conan and the X-Men and his first series, Ursula Aprende was published by Mega Multimedia. Cinfuentes is a man of many talents and has served as an inker, draftsman, and graphic designer for several of his projects, including Dias Malos, Despues de la Senal, and El Asesino del Kanzashi. Most recently, Cifuentes has served as penciller for Injustice II and Cover Artist for IvX. Writer Meredith Finch says, "I can think of no artist better suited than Vicente Cifuentes to collaborate with on Xena: Warrior Princess.  Vicente brings a love and a passion for the character that matches my own and his raw and gritty style pairs perfectly with the rough and tough warrior princess fans want and expect to see on the page."   Meredith Finch is a comic book writer, best known for her work on DC Comic's Wonder Woman in 2011.  Since, she has worked with a number of top publishers and most recently launched her first creator-owned series, Rose, in 2017. Meredith will be attending this weekend's New Jersey Comic Expo, where fans can meet and talk some of the comic industry's strongest female characters and all of her work, to date and upcoming, especially Xena! Finch will also be taking questions on the new series during Dynamite's Sunday panel at 2 pm est! "We're proud to be the comic book home for Xena: Warrior Princess, now and into the future," says Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite. "And we're so excited to launch this new series! Writer Meredith Finch is the perfect fit to bring such a strong female character to the page, and with the addition of the ever-talented Vicente Cifuentes as artist, this series is sure to be a huge hit amongst Xena fans and beyond!" 
The Xena: Warrior Princess franchise first expanded into comic books in 1997 with several series published by Topps Comics, including crossovers with their Hercules: The Legendary Journeys comics. Two years later, Dark Horse acquired the rights and published a fourteen-issue series. In 2006, Dynamite Entertainment acquired the rights, publishing Xena: Warrior Princess #1-4 (the "Contest of Pantheons" storyline) and a second series, subtitled Dark Xena. Also, two tongue-in-cheek crossover series materialized with Dynamite's long-running Army of Darkness series, as both Xena and AOD had roots at Renaissance Pictures and featured actor and cult film hero Bruce Campbell. In 2015, Dynamite reacquired the Xena license, publishing a new core series, an additional AOD crossover (subtitled Forever and a Day), and high-quality reprints of classic Xena comic books from the 1990s and early 2000s.
Xena #1 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors' December 2017 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in February 2018. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies of Xena #1 with their local comic book retailers. Xena #1 will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, Madefire, and Dark Horse Digital.

 DYNAMITE OFFERS ELECTRO-POP PHENOM LIGHTS'
SKIN & EARTH #1 FOR JUST 10-CENTS!
 In Advance of the Series' Third Act, Dynamite Offers the Series Debut
at a Digital Discount for Fans



October 30, 2017, Mt. Laurel, NJ:  Earlier this year, electro-pop sensation Lights revealed the details of her next project, Skin&Earth - an album and comic book series written and illustrated entirely by Lights herself. The monthly comic book series kicked off in July, with new music released alongside each issue, leading into the release of Skin&Earth, Lights' new full-length studio album on Warner Bros. Records in September.
Now, for an extremely limited time, Dynamite Entertainment is offering the first issue digitally for just a dime! Issues 2-4 are also available for just $1.99 each! 
Writer, artist, and pop sensation Lights says, "I spent so much time working head in on the Skin&Earth comics that I never really stopped to consider if it would be received well or if the characters would resonate with people. When we launched issue one just a week before Comic-Con this year, I was blown away to already see cosplayers there, and before I knew it, fan art, cosplay and people's reactions to the story line and the twists of the story started to pour in. I never imagined we'd already be reprinting issue one after only a few months. I have a massive respect for comics and creators in the field, and to feel embraced in this industry is quite incredible."
"The response from Lights' fanbase has been tremendous, and lead to one of our most talked about titles in 2017, with multiple printings of the first two issues," says Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher for Dynamite Entertainment. "Working with such a talented and dedicated musician who is both writing and drawing the series herself has truly been a unique treat for both her fans and ours. We wanted to grow the readership for this great series, and wanted to not only bring in new readers, but to make sure her fans had one more chance to get on board with the series before heading into their local comic book shop this Wednesday."
The comic series follows a young woman, En - a reflection of Lights herself - as she struggles to find hope in a hopeless world. Caught between romance and cults, gods and mortals, En is led down a dark path by new friends/lovers into a twisted fantasy world, forcing her to dig within and find the strength to overcome. Set in a post-apocalyptic future where corporations rule, Skin&Earth is an adventurous tale of loneliness and deceit, but ultimately becomes one of self-discovery and independence.
Skin&Earth #5 is out Wednesday, November 15th, with the sixth and final issue available for preorder through your local comic book retailer. Pick up the first four issues exclusively through this deep discount at http://dynamite.com/digital/ today!
Skin&Earth is the fourth studio album from the Canadian singer and songwriter, whose 2015 release Little Machines won Lights her second JUNO Award, for Best Pop Album of the Year. Little Machines featured the Platinum-selling, Top 10 radio hit "Up We Go" and earned accolades from TIME, Idolator, Refinery29, Alternative Press, Noisey, NYLON, and more. The Toronto-based Lights, née Valerie Anne Poxleitner, has sold out headline tours across North America and Europe. Lights has also played numerous festivals including Coachella, Reading & Leeds, and has toured with OneRepublic, Tegan & Sara, Parmore, DEADMAU5, and many others.
