Fans of Garth Ennis prepare yourselves, the third issue of THE SHADOW is headed our way and Garth Ennis will be writing. The series is centered around the pulp hero who has set up a trap for his adversaries; but they aren't so easily fooled. Dynamite Entertainment has provided us with a first look at four covers to the series' third issue, and it sounds like it'll be a doozey. Check them out as well as the solicitation for the issue, below.

THE SHADOW #3
Written by Garth Ennis
Art by Aaron Campbell
Covers by ALEX ROSS (25%), HOWARD CHAYKIN (25%), JOHN CASSADAY (25%), STEPHEN SEGOVIA (25%)
The Shadow sets a trap for his foes, but neither Taro Kondo nor the fearsome Buffalo Wong are inclined to step into it without taking certain precautions. A night of slaughter in the Shanghai underworld sees Margo Lane learning just how high the stakes are, and how far her master will go to win his deadly game.

What do you think of Ennis' THE SHADOW? Are you looking forward to the third issue? Which of the covers below is your favorite?

Read in an interview that Ennis is only writing the first arc. Wonder who the replacement will be?

How can I offer an opinion when Issue 1 isn't even out for another month?

Are you sure it's Warren Ellis? Not Garth Ennis? (Oh well, they're both good)

I like the Chaykin cover the best.

Alex Ross cover is great, but I like the first cover best, its very golden age.

That's always the case with Dynamite. They hire a "big name" to write the initial arc to draw readers in, then have a lesser known continue on with the series from there.  
 
I really like the Shadow, I'll be looking forward to picking this up in trade, although I'm always a bit hesitant where Garth Ennis is concerned.

Why do people mention Ellis?

Where does it say anything about Ellis?

@Billy Batson: The original story from last night had Ellis instead of Ennis. Looks like it was corrected.

So proud of comic readers who have no idea what they are talking about. Spoken like a true presumptuous idiot who hasn't heard of Back to Brooklyn, Battlefields, Streets of Glory, or Battler Britton. No worries, DON'T read/buy the Shadow. You don't deserve to read good comics. I heard Millar got some new trash for you to buy, maybe you'll like that instead.
