The Shade is heading into part 2 of the 3 part Times past series to learn more about The Shade, today we have cover art highlighting some of that goodness. While we could leave it at just that we also managed to find a clip of commentary from DC on the upcoming issue as he ventures into France.
“Darwyn Cooke did a beautiful job with the first one in issue #4, and Gene Ha will bring it all home with #12. And for #8, the one-of-a-kind Jill Thompson made room in her busy schedule not only to draw the issue, but also to provide this sweet variant cover. Brilliantly colored by Trish Mulvihill, it depicts The Shade mid-battle with a demon over the very soul of Paris in 1901! But hey, don’t fret too much — does The Shade look worried to you?”
James Robinson writes up issue #8 and Jill Thompson knocks out the art for the book. Expect the next chapter of this back story to arrive on May 16th.
