Pulp heroes unite in Dynamite’s upcoming Shadow and The Green Hornet team-up, which will be written by Michael Uslan with covers by Alex Ross and John Cassaday, and interior art by Keith Burns.
“In The Shadow/Green Hornet: Dark Nights, a terror plot unfolds during World War I but doesn’t strike until the world is on the eve of a second world war,” said Uslan in a statement. “In a time of grave crisis, Lamont Cranston and Britt Reid are brought together by FDR, himself, but NOT for the reason one would EVER imagine! Is it possible that The GIRASOL of The Shadow… like The Cosmic Cube in the Marvel Universe… holds within the ultimate power on earth? If so, will anything stop Hitler and the mighty Shiwan Khan from seizing it at all costs? Only The Shadow and The Green Hornet joining forces have a chance in Hell of stopping them and saving mankind from a fate worse than death!”

The book hits in July and in addition to the rather serious Ross and Cassaday covers, Dynamite is jumping on the “Cutecore” bandwagon with this one by name TK!

  1. “Pulp heroes unite…”?
    Actually it’s…
    “RADIO heroes unite…”
    Both the Green Hornet and The Shadow debuted on radio.
    The Shadow was narrator of the Street & Smith Detective Story Hour in 1931 and The Green Hornet in his own radio series in 1936.
    Plus, the Green Hornet NEVER appeared in pulp magazines!
    For a blog about pop culture, you really don’t know much about the subject, do you?

  2. BUT – in all fairness- the depiction of the Shadow you see in these books is derived from the pulp magazine version.

    The radio version differs drastically in that Lamont Cranston was a little playboy wimp who went around hypnotizing bad guys to make them not see him or to ‘cloud mens’ minds’- PLUS he never dispensed justice with his trademark .45′s or needed no other assistants other than Margo Lane and Shrevvy.

    So, I consider Ms. Beat to be half right.

    In the case of the Green Hornet however- there were a series of Big Little Books released in the ’40′s – that in a sense could be considered pulpish.

    Yeah, that “cute” cover and a bunch of others from Dynamite are by me.
