    The Shadow in this book, with only a co-starring role, makes a much better impression than in any of the Garth Ennis issues of his solo book. It helps that it's an urban setting imo, I like this much more than the Far East locations that dominated the Ennis run. I prefer the grim and gritty big city for these hard boiled pulp guys.

Chaykin will write and draw The Shadow: Midnight in Moscow, a story that takes place three decades prior to his original Blood & Judgement series."

So when The Black Sparrow is hired to steal a mysterious “Moon Stone” from a museum in New York, her decision to keep the thing for a better payday annoys her former employers who then steal it back from her.

    And here's the formal press release from Dark Horse.

    DARK HORSE AND DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCE AN EPIC CROSSOVER EVENT!

    New York Comic Con kicks off with news of an all-new Matt Wagner series ‘The Shadow vs. Grendel!’

    NEW YORK, NY, OCTOBER 7–Days before the doors open on one of the year’s largest events in pop culture, Dark Horse Comics and Dynamite Entertainment announce the first in a series of upcoming crossovers. Matt Wagner will write and draw an all-new Grendel story steeped in the pulp-noir world of The Shadow!

    The Shadow is one of the most renowned and enduring pop-culture creations of all time, a multi-media character that established the original archetype of the modern super-hero. Grendel, Matt Wagner’s epic saga of dark aggression, has been a trailblazing powerhouse of independent comics for over thirty years and, for many fans, the elegant and deadly Hunter Rose is the quintessential version of the character. Combined, these legendary and iconic characters represent over a century of publishing history!

    Best-selling author Hunter Rose is secretly the masked assassin and criminal overlord known only as Grendel. When an arcane artifact comes into his possession, Grendel finds himself thrust into a world for which he seems destined, where style and violence intersect to form a dazzling golden age. He will soon discover that this New York also has a fearsome protector—a dark and mysterious avenger whose name is spoken in hushed whispers, The Shadow!

    “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,” comments Grendel creator, 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.”

    “I'm looking forward to this project for many reasons, not the least of which is Matt Wagner's return as both writer and artist of Grendel” said Dark Horse president and publisher, Mike Richardson. “The fact that I share Matt's enthusiasm for one of the greatest fictional characters of all time, The Shadow, makes it all the more exciting. Dark Horse and Dynamite are proud to announce this great comic series from one of comics' premier creators.”

    “Matt Wagner truly is a living legend. I’ve personally known and been a fan of Matt’s since Grendel first appeared in the early ‘80’s, and one of the first prestige comics I bought was the Terminator by Matt with James Robinson from Dark Horse. Matt’s an incredible story teller and has written three series for Dynamite, including The Shadow: Year One” said Dynamite publisher, Nick Barucci. “When the idea for a Shadow/Grendel cross-over was suggested, and Matt stated that he would write it AND illustrate the series in a Prestige format, let’s just say that you can’t quantify the excitement in our offices. This is such an incredible series, and the first of more projects that Dynamite and Dark Horse are announcing.”

    This exciting new three issue series will be released in three 48 page prestige format issues in 2014! Look for more details in the months to come, and check out this exclusive interview on Comic Book Resources!
