THE SHADOW COMIC BOOK APPEARANCES
Shadow Comics (Street & Smith) V1#1-V9#4 Mar40-Aug49
Gibson scripted at least the first six years.
The Shadow (Archie/Radio Comics) #1-8 Aug64-Sep65
Without a doubt the worst Shadow comic. #1 & 2 has
a blond jet-setting Lamont Cranston as the Shadow.
From #3 on, the Shadow is a super-hero, wearing a blue and
green outfit complete with mask and cape who fights Shiwan
Khan. One thing the Shadow does is practice in a "Danger Room",
a la the X-Men. The art and writing is reminiscent of Archie Comic's
attempt to cash in on the camp Batman craze with all their superheroes.
The Shadow (DC Comics) #1-12 Oct/Nov73-Aug/Sep75
One of the better versions. Issues 1-4,6 are the best with art
by Mike Kaluta. DC has recently reprinted these issues in hard-
back as _The Private Files of the Shadow_ along with a new, original
story. The Avenger teams-up in issue #11.
The Batman (DC Comics) #252,257 1973
Shadow crosses over into Batman. Written by Denny O'Neill, author
of DC Shadow comic.
The Shadow: Blood and Judgement (DC) #1-4 [mini-series] 1986
A controversial updating by writer/artist Howard Chaykin with
a new twist on his origin. DC has reprinted this in a graphic
novel entitled _Blood and Judgement_ in 1987.
The Shadow (DC) #1-19, 2 annuals Aug87-Jan89
A continuation of the modern Shadow, tho without alot of the sex
and violence of Chaykin. The title is broken into well defined
"novels". The first novel has art by Bill Sienkeivitz, the rest
has art by Kyle Baker, all are written by Andy Hefler. The Shadow
gets killed in #13, and his body it taken by a rock star so that
at the end of the series is just his head on a robot body. The
storyline was unfinished and there where rumours the writer and
artist would complete it in a graphic novel. Has not happened.
Novels where: #1-6, Annual 1 : Shadows and Light
#7 : Harold Goes to Washington
#8-13 : Seven Deadly Finns
#14-19 : Body and Soul
Annual 2 : Agents
The Shadow 1941: Hitler's Astrologer (Marvel) Graphic Novel #35. 1988?
A graphic novel by Dennis O'Neil and Michael Kaluta who did DC's
version in the 70s. This was published while DC was doing their
modern-day version and there were rumors that DC would do the modern
version, and Marvel would do the 30s and 40s version as graphic
novels. This never happened. Was published as a hard-back and only
recently reprinted in paperback.
Crime Classics (Malibu) #1-13 1988?
Reprints the Shadow NEWSPAPER strip.
Rocketeer Adventure Magazine (Comico) #1-3 (3 not yet published)
This is the second Rocketeer comic series by its creator, Dave
Stevens. Here he is hired by a "Mr. Jonas" to be a pilot. We
know that he is really the Shadow, but copyrights prevent this
from being said.
The Shadow Strikes! (DC) #1-31, Annual 1 Sep89-Apr92
DCs newest series now set in the 30s and 40s. Series has had good
and bad stories. Shiwan Khan appeared in two story lines and we
find out his connection with the Shadow as well as Margo's 'origin'.
Doc teams up in #5,6 of Shadow Strikes and Doc #16-18.
The series ends with a two part origin of the Shadow, a sort of
"Shadow: Year One".
The Shadow (Dark Horse) 1993-95
(total of 13 issues over three years)
The Shadow: In the Coils of the Leviathan
The Shadow; From the Universal Pictures Film
The Shadow: Hell's Heat Wave
The Shadow and the Mysterious Three
The Shadow and Doc Savage
Ghost and the Shadow
COMING NEW SERIES FROM DYNAMITE
Gone since 1995, the hero that knows the evil in men's hearts, The Shadow is returning to comic book print. Dynamite Entertainment is bringing the hero to a new series thanks to a licensing agreement made with Conde Nast. The new series does not have a creative team yet, but Dynamite mainstay cover artists John Cassaday, Alex Ross, Ryan Sook, and Jae Lee will all be contributing covers to the book. Dynamite's President and Publisher said in a press release that "pursuing The Shadow has been a lifetime quest."
Somehow I completely missed the dark horse comics line, Can anybody give me their recommendations on it. Is it worth searching out back issues? I welcome any information, thanks.
