Matt Wagner is returning to The Shadow just in time for the Death of Margo Lane. Wagner has previous worked on The Shadow: Year One and Grendel Vs The Shadow and he comes back to the classic pulp character along with his son, colorist Brennan Wagner. The new series from Dynamite will kick off on June 1st.
"I've been a huge fan of The Shadow since my early teens and I just had to come back to the character by both writing and drawing this exciting and critical storyline" says Matt Wagner. "The Death of Margo Lane is a series that will challenge The Shadow on many levels… and leave him changed in ways he had never expected."
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!
In addition to the beautifully drawn cover to the first issue, qualifying retailers will be eligible for a special classic crime noir black-and-white variant version. Details available in the April dated issue of Diamond's Previews catalog.
Both Wagners have been working recently on Will Eisner's The Spirit along with artist Dan Schkade.
