One of the original pulp adventure heroes embarks on a startling new life in the modern world! Get your copy of The Shadow Now #1 when it goes on sale at Curious Comics this coming Wednesday October 2!

These are the pieces of a puzzle that will push the Sentinel of Liberty to his limits - and give Captain America a chance to live up to his status as a living legend!
