Following the series being leaked earlier this month by comiXology, DC and Dynamite have released the first pages from their upcoming Batman/The Shadow #1, on shelves April 26.  

“Batman is a myth that transcends the comic book page and inspires us to achieve, while The Shadow is the cornerstone of so much of the pop culture and comics we see today,” explained co-writer Steve Orlando. “To bring together the World’s Greatest Detective and the World’s Greatest Mystery is an honor. Batman/The Shadow will pay tribute to legacies in comics and pulp fiction, as the two characters meet in a generations-deep conflict unlike any they’ve seen before, with a case that stretches back to the origins of time, and will redefine murder.”
