    I certainly look forward to the Shadow, (as long as Kevin Smith is kept away from him)

    And like based of the great Green Hornet Year One, I would also love a hardcover collected edition of the first 1940's comic books

    As for reprinting stories from good old Pulp Magazines, the Double Pulp series did a pretty good job, all the way to 50 volumes, including the 1931 premiere in volume 47, along with many volumes of The Spider, The Avenger... Just wish someone would take care of reprinting old Green Lama Pulp classics, and old Domino Lady as well

    Dynamite Can't go wrong with this guy







    PS: Love the old movie serials, the old time radio episodes, the 1990's film, and hope for an other soon

          Dear Dynamite -

          You did a great job with the Green Hornet Golden Age remastered book.
          If you have the rights, how about a couple of hardcover collections of the Shadow Daily newspaper strip that ran from 1938-1942?
          I ask that you please consider this.

              I see Dynamite continues to keep the early 20th century pulp heroes going strong. With what great work they've done with Green Hornet, Phantom, Lone Ranger and John Carter I'm very curious to see what they have in store for The Shadow!!

                New DE titles

                New titles like these are great, BUT!!!! Lets pay much more attention to the many titles that are falling further and further behind in schedule! Red Sonja, Jennifer Blood and even Kato in the last few months!!!

                  This will ship with a million covers, then drop to two or three by issue 4, launch a few tie in series then completely drop off the map.

                  Really not intreasted in this or anything new Dynamite is putting out, unless it has a red headed chain mail bikini clad warrior woman in it.

                      Green Lama (from DOUBLE DETECTIVE magazine) was reprinted by both Altus Press (who plan to collect the entire series in 3 volumes)

                      and by Adventure House (in issues of their HIGH ADVENTURE pulp reprint series -- they reprinted the first six pulp stories).

                      Domino Lady has been reprinted by Vanguard Press (with new illustrations and a new story by Steranko!), still available from Amazon.com:

                        The Shadow

                        A short time back "The Shadow" was announced by DE, along with a preview of a few covers. Any word yet as to when we may expect issue #1?

                          Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows! The Shadow returns to comic stores written by the man born to write him - Garth Ennis. The artist joining Garth will be Aaron Campbell. Featuring covers by fan favorite artists Alex Ross, Howard Chaykin, Jae Lee and John Cassaday. The Shadow #1 his stores in April 2012!

                          In the first issue of the ONGOING SERIES, it's 1938 and The Shadow returns in a tale of blazing action and deadly intrigue, as a night of carnage on the New York waterfront plunges the mysterious vigilante into a conspiracy involving the fate of the world itself. As storm clouds gather across the globe, American Military Intelligence meets with a certain Lamont Cranston, determined to beat a host of spies and assassins to the greatest prize of all... but what that might be, only the Shadow knows. Be sure to get The Shadow #1 in April 2012!

                          "The Shadow is probably the last established character I like that I haven't gotten around to writing yet, certainly on this side of the Atlantic," says writer Garth Ennis. "It makes a kind of bloody, bullet-riddled sense: I always had a feeling our paths would cross sooner or later."

                          "The Shadow is an awesome character in an awesome time," adds artist Aaron Campbell. "I mean what's not to like? You have the old school mystique of eastern mysticism wrapped up with a badass gunslinger!"

                          "Garth is a writer who was born to write The Shadow," states Dynamite Entertainment President and Publisher Nick Barrucci. "Not since Howard Chaykin's acclaimed mini-series have I been this excited for a Shadow series. Garth will take The Shadow to a new level, and Aaron will compliment his scripts well. I cannot wait for fans to see Garth's take on the character!"

                            So, Garth Ennis' Shadow. And Howard Chaykin's Shadow. And what else do Ennis and Chaykin have in common? A predilection for portraying blowjobs in comics. All of a sudden I'm not so sure I'm comfortable with this idea...
