Cullen Bunn Teams Up the Shadow with Houdini

Posted by Orion Petitclerc Saturday, March 29, 2014
Earlier today on Comic Book Resources, Dynamite Entertainment announced Cullen Bunn's involvement with writing a special issue #0 of its acclaimed The Shadow comic book series based on the popular pulp-era hero. The issue will explore Lamont Cranston/Kent Allard/Ying Ko's, a.k.a. the Shadow, secrets from his past as he confronts a secret society of evil magicians and meets the one and only Harry Houdini.

In an interview with CBR, Bunn mentions his personal connection with the Shadow through his father, who recently passed away, adding an extra special tone to the news. Dynamite CEO and publisher Nick Barrucci also expressed the company's excitement for working with Bunn, who has become a rising star in the industry.

As a fan of Bunn since his work with the late Venom series from Marvel and a budding fan of all things Shadow since recently rewatching the 1994 film with Alec Baldwin (one of my favorite superhero films from that era), I too am extremely excited about the news and look forward to Bunn's take on the Shadow and his interactions with one of the most recognizable names in magic.

Although there is no date yet for the book's publication, how excited are you guys and gals over this news? How bitter do you think the fruit from the weed of magical crime will be? THE SHADOW KNOWS! Drop a comment below about your favorite Shadow stories and geek out with me over the epically campy film.
