Discover “The Valley Of The Shadow Of Death” In Waid And Davis’ ‘Shadow Walk’ [Preview] [NYCC 2013]
Arriving in stores this November from Legendary Comics is Shadow Walk, an original graphic novel from Mark Waid, Legendary founder Thomas Tull, World War Z author Max Brooks and artist Shane Davis. Written by Waid and illustrated by Davis, the premise of the story comes from the well-known passage in the 23rd Psalm from the Bible: “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: For thou art with me.” The idea at the center of Shadow Walk is, what if “the valley of the shadow of death” was real? Groups of soldiers discover the valley at various points in history, near modern day Iraq, and none have ever returned alive, until special forces officer James Raines.
Shadow Walk was originally conceived by Tull, further developed by Brooks, and was then fully realized by Waid and Davis. The book debuts next month, but you can check out a 10 page preview below.
