"To have the chance to both write and draw The Shadow facing my own creation is something of a dream come true!" - Matt Wagner

Matt Wagner's Grendel and The Shadow #1 goes on sale September 3. The official synopsis reads:

Sparks fly and bullets blaze when the original Grendel, Hunter Rose, is transported to 1930s New York and faces off with the original dark-night avenger, the Shadow! Two pulp-noir icons go head to head in this three-issue prestige-format series written and drawn by legendary Grendel creator Matt Wagner.

“Ever since the smash success of my two previous crossover events [with Batman], I’ve had many offers over the years to see Grendel cross blades with a varied host of other characters,” says Matt Wagner. “But none of those opportunities ever excited me as much as this possibility.  I’ve been a huge fan of The Shadow for many, many years and my love of the character finally saw fruition when I got the chance to literally re-define his origins by writing The Shadow: Year One for Dynamite. To have the chance to both write and draw The Shadow facing my own creation is something of a dream come true! It's also adds yet another instant classic to my long legacy of Grendel projects with Dark Horse Comics.”
