Today DC has a treat for fans of The Shade, not only do we have some issue #7 preview pages we also have a sample of the variant cover as well.
The Inquisitor plans to unleash hell on Earth and the plan is coming full circle, with the acolytes committing suicide already the dark days are coming. The Shade only has La Sangre and Montpellier by his side to stop this plot and save the lives of those already taken by The Inquisitor, the only catch is once they see his identity they’ll need to dig up one more item to put him down.
DC managed to grab a few words with the creative team on the issue as well.
“I’m excited for issue #7 to come out for a lot of reasons,” series writer James Robinson told THE SOURCE. “It wraps up the Barcelona arc with Javier Pulido, a story that I’ve loved working on, and which I’m really gratified to see readers have enjoyed along with the introduction of the vampire super-heroine La Sangre. Here in this final issue we finally learn the Inquisitor’s grand scheme and see the Shade using his powers to the Nth degree, both important pieces of what will eventually combine into the overall grand story line of all 12 issues. I’m also happy that the issue serves to both set up issue #8’s ‘Times Past’ story with art by Jill Thompson as well as having a cliffhanger ending that leads us into the ‘London arc’ beginning in issue #9 with art by Frazer Irving. This is a labor of love for me, so a big thank you to all the readers who’ve supported this book.”
The Shade #7 goes on sale tomorrow so you won’t have to wait very long to get your hands on it, in the meantime check out the gallery below for images on the comic.
