Following the suicides of his acolytes, The Inquisitor’s plan to unleash hell on Earth is one step closer to being executed. Together, the Shade, La Sangre and Montpellier must stop him before the lives of the twenty-five innocent people he’s captured are lost. And when The Inquisitor reveals the truth about his enigmatic identity, the trio will need to find one last puzzle piece to defeat him.
Earlier today, we showed you Dale Keown’s variant cover for GREEN LANTERN #8. This afternoon, we’ve got another exclusive variant cover for you to take a gander at. Below, check out the variant cover for THE SHADE #7 by the issue’s artist, Javier Pulido.
In the last issue of THE SHADE, a dark spell was cast across Barcelona. With the return of The Inquisitor, 25 innocent citizens of the city found themselves held hostage. And the only way to save their lives is to exchange them for the life of Shade’s protégé, vampire La Sangre.
In the latest chapter of his globe-trotting adventures, The Shade ends up in the European city of Barcelona. While there, he crosses paths with a vampire named La Sangre, named after the Spanish word for “blood.” But what do La Sangre’s origins reveal about The Shade’s? Why does she insist on calling him “father”? And will he be able to help her take down her archenemy, The Inquisitor, before it’s too late? Written by James Robinson and illustrated by Javier Pulido, THE SHADE #5 hits stores tomorrow.
