    Legendary creator Matt Wagner returns to both write and draw an all-new tale for the first and most famous of all pulp heroes, The Shadow! Following his critically-acclaimed work on The Shadow: Year One and Grendel vs. The Shadow, Wagner once again lends his masterful talents to unveil "what evil lurks in the hearts of men." In a storyline that is sure to rock The Shadow's relentless crusade against crime, Dynamite is proud to bring readers The Death of Margo Lane - a five-issue series written and drawn by Wagner and colored by his talented son, Brennan Wagner. For years, Margo Lane has served as The Shadow's faithful "friend and companion", the closest and most intimate of all his many agents. But when will that proximity to The Shadow's dark and violent world take its ultimate toll on her? And what effect will his lover's loss have on the driven and brooding Master of Darkness? This series presents a powerful and resonant tale in the sort of pulse-pounding pulp style that only Matt Wagner could deliver!
    "Matt Wagner excels at pulp. While other authors have gone down the road of making use of the tropes - modernizing it, using it ironically, sticking elements of it in different genres - Wagner comes across as though he's traveled to modern times from the era in which it was birthed."

    Definitely looking forward to this since it's both written and drawn by Wagner.

      * Miss Fury Volume 2 #3
      * The Shadow: The Death of Margo Lane #1 ( of 6 )
      * Will Eisner's The Spirit #11 (which was originally due out May 25th, put it looks like Previewsworld now has it for June 1st)

      Then two weeks later is Twilight Zone: The Shadow #3 ( of 4 )

        I hope there a hardcover collection of this series later, like DE did with The Shadow Year One and like Dark Horse did with Grendel vs. The Shadow.

          Does it say what year it happens in?

            Nothing in the interview Wagner did for Comic Shop News. Presumably this would be the late '40s, towards the end of The Shadow's career, but if it IS the real death of Margo, then it is of course at variance with the Howard Chaykin stuff like Midnight In Moscow, Blood & Judgment, and other stories that followed in line with that. Of course it might just be the apparent death of Margo, which The Shadow believes is real and deals with as such. I'm okay with it either way.
