Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun" (Part 1 of 3) - After being scattered around for a bit, Team Vampirella is reunited with new purpose. It's a good thing, too, because the team will have their hands full fighting a coven of witches in the present, while Vampirella and Criswell are otherwise occupied. And by "occupied," we mean their minds have been projected 100 years into the future!

Drummond, now on the run, seeks shelter in Hitchcock's Menagerie, but how long will it be before Inspector Thornton tracks him down? The final piece of the puzzle falls into place for Holmes as he and Watson return to the scene of Tom Christian's murder. Yet the route they take is far from straight and perhaps more dangerous than even the Great Detective could imagine.



Covers: Howard Chaykin

Writer: Garth Ennis

Art: Craig Cermak


The Rules: in which our heroes take a further step down a very dangerous road and lay out their battle plan. But not everyone is happy with the unit's new direction, especially some of the other players in the game...

She is no longer orphaned teen Jessica Blute, or suburban mom Jen Fellows, or the criminal known as Jennifer Blood. She is now just another inmate of Las Chacales Women's Correctional Facility.

The Justice Party tightens its grip on the Empire State, and the vigilantes and heroes are preparing to go on the offensive. The Shadow, Miss Fury, Green Hornet, Black Bat and the others have gathered enough evidence to prove that the public officials who have established the new fascist police state are merely the pawns of more sinister forces who lurk unseen. No one has heard from the Spider since he left for Albany to investigate the new governor, and he is feared dead, captured, or worse. And while Green Hornet, Black Terror, Miss Fury, and others join the Shadow in preparing to attack the hidden masters of the Justice Party, two fugitives take to the streets as Zorro and the Black Bat.

I've got to say, even after all these years, Alex Ross still does a HELL of a cover (and Tim Bradstreet is not freaking bad either :)

I know right? I hope its not ending.

And Its about time they start taking the shadow back to his roots at scaring the underworld of his power. that was the whole point of the shadow. I don't care for his past. its meant to be mysterious.

Dynamite just wants all my money don't they?

Posted by longbowhunter

All the Shadow covers are excellent, especially the Chris Samnee Year One.

Posted by derf_jenkins

this red team by ennis looks like it could be solid.

Posted by DonFelipe

There's something about Dynamite covers that separates them from all the other publishers' covers... and then there's The Shadow with "his" amazing art work. I couldn't agree more with , the Samnee cover is the best... a close second is the Ross' #12... nice piece of b/w art with a sense of red.

Posted by pikahyper

wow that Shadow cover is the best Bradstreet piece I've seen in a long time.

I can't wait for The Shadow: Year One.

Posted by jsphsmth

So thankful that Dynamite is supporting the classic pulp characters.

Truly gorgeous covers for Masks, Sherlock Holmes, and The Shadow.

Cannot wait for the Black Bat ongoing. He looks great on the Masks cover with Zorro.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Shadow Year One looks awesome, but I think I may have to trade wait for that. Masks is awesome but...I thought Alex Ross was supposed to be doing interior art for this? And can Fabiano Neves do a wickedly gorgeous Vampi or what? Dynamite is solid gold always...

Posted by bsavelli

Alex Ross's cover for The Shadow Year One is simply amazing

Posted by Miss_Garrick

I guess it's just me, but I've never seen the appeal in having Sherlock Holmes fight demons and such. I have no problem with him being in the 22nd century or being an anthropomorphic dog (awesome show), but when it comes to Lovecraft-esque stuff, I don't find it fun.

Go, figure.

Im all for pulp/noir, but ive never been impressed by any artwork in any Dynamite book.

Posted by Hanson724

Where's Thunderbolt? The cover art on that book has been amazing so far! Especially issue 4.

Posted by bloggerboy

Will be getting Jennifer Blood but they all look like pretty interesting titles.

Posted by TheSmallvillefan12

Looking forward to Red Team

Posted by Fuchsia_Nightingale

Masks is very good ! I highly suggest it !

Damsels I'm looking to get into

Posted by Sonata

Love reading Vampirella, I also have to give Masks a try.

No...Red Sonja...=/

@UltraBiel: This isn't Dynamite's entire lineup for March. They split their solicits across a few different sites. No idea why. Seems like poor marketing.

Thank's for the info I started to think they were going to make some kind of hiatus in Sonja's ongoings. God no!!!!
