Dynamite Entertainment, last week (April 18) with the help of some very important creators such as Garth Ennis (writer) and Aaron Campbell (artist) as well as Jae Lee, Alex Ross, John Cassaday and Howard Chaykin doing covers and unsurprisingly, the first issue was a success. To prove that it would be a hot seller, Dynamite "motivated" retailers who ordered very large quantities (some say around 250 issues) by sending them one of the 200 "Dynamite Authentix" individually sketched, retailer incentive covers by Alex Ross. That's right! Alex Ross personally sketched 200 issues of the blank cover you see on the left. Each sketch is different! Plus he sketched another 25 as part of a "manufacturer's proof" which are even scarcer. You can see number 25 of 25 of these covers below.
If you have any additional information or if you see any of these covers posted online or even if you happen to own one, please send me a scan or a clear photo to email@example.com, even if they're repeated, I'm also looking for clearer shots of the ones I have. Help this collector display all 200 (and 25) issues of The Shadow on this site. Thank you!
These are issues 9, 10, 15, 22, 28, 32, 34, 35, 41, 42, 43, 50, 55, 66, 67, 77, 78, 81, 93, 98 and 107
The following are the issues for which I don't know the numbers yet.
