Chaykin Returns To The Shadow After 30 Years

Shadow

30 years after his first visit to the world of Lamont Cranston,  comic book legend Howard Chaykin returns to The Shadow! for Dynamite Entertainment. Chaykin will write and draw The Shadow: Midnight in Moscow, a story that takes place three decades prior to his original Blood & Judgement series.

Chaykin share his thoughts on the return to writing the pulp hero,

I’m delighted and grateful to Dynamite for the opportunity to work once again on so legendary a character as The Shadow. My new miniseries, The Shadow: Midnight in Moscow, tells the secret story behind the Shadow’s disappearance in 1949.

With the announcement, Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite had this to say,

The Shadow: Blood & Judgment is one of my favorite comic series of all time. It absolutely blows my mind, still to this day.  I can’t even begin to express how much this means to me as the publisher of the series and how much as a fan of Howard’s series.  Howard Chaykin’s return to the character is going to be phenomenal.  And in a move that will certainly keep his fans on their toes, he’s setting Midnight in Moscow up not as a direct sequel to his earlier work, but years and years beforehand, at an exciting and critical moment in the Shadow’s history.  I have such tremendous respect for Howard as a storyteller, a true modern master of the comic book medium.

While the new mini-series returns Chaykin to the interior pages, he’d been contributing covers in recent years to the various The Shadow series published by Dynamite already.
