The first issue of SINESTRO comes out on Wednesday! In advance of the series launch, I took a few minutes to talk to USA TODAY about the DC Universe’s most narcissistic character! Hints about Sinestro’s motivation, the reintroduction of the Yellow Lanterns, the role of Parallax, and more abound in this article.

Give it a read!

In addition, series artist Dale Eaglesham took time out of his schedule to talk about the book with Comic Book Resources.

Here’s what some reviewers had to say:

“This comic is creepy as Hell.” — Comicosity

The Shadow of Houdini

THESHADOW000COVER-COLORS-be12cOfficial Press Release

Dynamite Entertainment is proud to announce the signing of Cullen Bunn, who will pen a Shadow tale where he meets the elusive magician Houdini! And you can expect more to come from Dynamite and Cullen Bunn in the future!

“I’ve long been a fan of pulp heroes, and the Shadow was my introduction into that world,” says writer Cullen Bunn. “I remember my dad recounting adventures of The Shadow he had heard on the radio as a boy. And my dad could do the best imitation of the Shadow’s laugh! I like to think that he’d get a real kick out of me contributing to the legacy of the character. I know I couldn’t be more thrilled. In this tale, we see the Shadow infiltrating a secret society of magicians who are willing to do anything to lay claim to what might be the most forbidden of secrets. As the Shadow evades devious deathtraps, we learn that he has a connection to the greatest magician of all time.”

In The Shadow #0, secrets of the Shadow’s past are revealed as he meets Houdini! The Shadow infiltrates sanctum of an esoteric society of murderous magicians who are hellbent on escaping the ultimate trap–death itself! In order to thwart their plans, though, he must evade twisted traps and solve spellbinding puzzles. A good–or evil–magician never reveals his secrets… but the Shadow knows.

“We’ve wanted to work with Cullen for years, but knew it had to be something special,” says Dynamite CEO / Publisher Nick Barrucci.  The Shadow #0 is that book, and fans will be amazed at the story that Cullen is telling.  Happy to say that while this is our first project with Cullen, there are more to come.”

“Cullen is a fantastic writer and this should be the start of many projects with him here at Dynamite” – Joseph Rybandt, Senior Editor

Also in October–HELLBREAK, a new ongoing series, will debut!

Not black ops. The blackest of ops. A group of elite soldiers has been recruited by the shadowy Kerberos Corporation for a series of special missions—breaking souls out of Hell and returning them to their bodies… and replacing the evil demons possessing their mortal shells here on Earth.

A gothic, action-packed vision of Hell in a new ongoing series that evokes Inception and Aliens by way of John Carpenter from the creative forces of writer Cullen Bunn, artist Brian Churilla, and colorist Jordie Bellaire!
