THE CROSSOVER YOU’VE BEEN WAITING FOR!

 

 

Before superheroes, there were Masks!

The Shadow, the Green Hornet, Kato, the Spider and more in a story that only Dynamite could tell! For the first time EVER, these masked vigilantes are joining together in one EPIC series! It’s 1938, and the Justice Party has swept into office in New York State. But the newly-elected officials are in the control of powerful criminals, who quickly corrupt the law to their own advantage. When a fascist police state is instituted, the only ones who stand in defense of the innocent are masked vigilantes like the Shadow, the Green Hornet, Kato, and the Spider. As the confrontation builds, more masked heroes will join the fight including Black Bat, Miss Fury, Black Terror, Green Lama and many more!

When the law is unjust, justice must be an outlaw!

Praise for Dynamite’s The Shadow!

“The Shadow is powerful, scary and full of crazy new powers of which most people are probably unaware.

I look forward to reading about the evil lurking in the hearts of men, especially if this version of the Shadow is on the case” – NEWSARAMA

From the tales of Cinderalla, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid and Snow White comes Damsels!

In the aftermath of King Persine’s rousing speech against magic violence erupts on the streets of Caumont. As citizen battles citizen the Queens Talia, Rapunzel, and Belle are busy making plans for the real war to come. Rapa manages to

escape from the belly of the mighty wyrm only to find herself an unsuspecting guest in a mysterious palace of the night. But what exactly are her curious hosts’ intentions? Dare she stay for just one more dance?

Advanced review of Damsels #1 by Bleeding Cool!

“I was pretty much sold with the cover and premise. But now I’ve had a chance to read the final first issue of Damsels #1. And it totally works.

“There’s been a rash of fairytales-in-the-real-world of late from Fables to Grimm to Once Upon A Time, but this is not that. This is closer to Terry Pratchett’s

Discworld or Shrek, just not so played for laughs. We have trolls under bridges keeping the city moving, we have markets selling fairies as pets – though they can also be used as possible assassins. And rather than stories trying to play their way out, we instead have characters trying to make their own way in the world, while kings, queens and princesses get on with whatever they get on with.”
