- Having spent decades in the east to rejuvenate himself, the greatest pulp hero of them all, The Shadow, returns to New York in modern times. Lamont Cranston seeks to resume his old life, and his heroic alter-ego is ready to stand once more as an enemy to evil. But while he slept, his foes have remained vigilant, and the most dangerous man that The Shadow has ever faced prepares to rise once more... with his wicked progeny by his side! It's the shocking beginning to a new era for the Shadow!
- David Liss Writer Commentary: "The Shadow is, without doubt, one of the coolest pulp characters of all time, so I was thrilled to get a chance to add something to the legend. While we are working within the long and storied tradition of Shadow adventures, I think we're also doing something original with this character, and that's always a great combination. (Colton Worley's) art is stunning, and a perfect fit for our neo-pulp tone. This story is dark and moody, which I think a Shadow story should be, but I think we're also portraying a very human and fallible version of the man behind the mask. Fans who have followed The Shadow in comics over the years are going to be very interested to see how we run with what's come before this."
