DC Comics may be delaying their April 2017 solicitations until next Monday. But Bleeding Cool will do our best to Frankenstein them together. Including this little beauty. The first issue of a Batman/Shadow crossover by Steve Orlando, Scott Snyder and Riley Rossmo, published with Dynamite Entertainment in a similar fashion to their recent Wonder Woman ’77/Bionic Woman collaboration.
The Shadow, which began as a narrator for a radio drama in 1931, became a character created by Walter B Gibson which span off into actual radio dramas, magazines, novels, comics, TV shows, games and movies – and was an integral inspiration for Batman and had “the power to cloud men’s minds so they cannot see him” while the radio opening lines “Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!”, was spoken by Frank Readick Jr. Dynamite Entertainment currently published a line of Shadow comic books.
And now The Shadow and his literary descendant are meeting up!
