SHADOW: THE DEATH OF MARGO LANE #1 (OF 6)ShadowDML01-Cov-A-WagnerShadowDML01-Cov-B-Incen-WagnerBW SKU:C72513024851001011 Price:$3.99 Rating:Teen + Cover A:Matt Wagner Writer:Matt Wagner Art:Matt Wagner, Brennan Wagner (Colorist) Genre:Superhero, Crime Noir Publication Date:June 2016 Format:Comic Book Page Count:32 pages UPC:725130248510 01011 ON SALE DATE:6/1 MARKETING DESCRIPTION: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.” – WeTheNerdy.com
