Next Wednesday, acclaimed writer James Robinson returns to the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling series STARMAN with a new spin-off miniseries, THE SHADE. Illustrated by fan-favorite artist Cully Hamner, THE SHADE #1 brings an unexpected encounter with a familiar face and ends in a jaw-dropping twist. Speculation starts now! And don’t miss the rest of this 12-issue miniseries, featuring art by such luminaries as Darwyn Cooke, Javier Pulido, Jill Thompson, Frazer Irving and Gene Ha.
Acclaimed artist Jill Thompson is joining writer James Robinson for issue #8 of his upcoming 12-part THE SHADE miniseries, starring the former-villain-turned-reluctant-hero from Robinson’s STARMAN series. The special standalone issue — set in Paris in the early 1900s — is something Robinson wrote specifically for Thompson. And even though the issue’s still months away, we’ve got a first look at her work.
