Attendees at this year’s New York Comic-Con have already gotten a chance to obtain a special 12-page print preview for Legendary Comics’ new graphic novel Shadow Walk, but you don’t have to miss out if you’re not able to hit the Big Apple this weekend. We’ve got the same 12-pages for you to check out right now!
Shadow Walk is written by Mark Waid (Daredevil), Max Brooks (World War Z), and Thomas Tull (Haphaestus) with art by Shane Davis (Superman: Earth One), and explores the possibility that the Valley of the Shadow of Death is a real place. The United States sends a group of special forces soldiers into Iraq to investigate a series of paranormal events. From there, well, you’ll see in the pages below.
Shadow Walk is out in late November 2013, so make sure you keep a look out for it and take a look at the pages here below.

Release date: May 12, 2010
I’ve written about the previous three issues of this series, so I may as well go four for four. The first three issues of this series were great, and fortunately, the end of the series does not disappoint. Siege #4 wraps up the story well, and sets up the new status quo where our heroes can work in the light and we don’t have to see Norman Osborn in fifteen different titles each month. With this issue writer Brian Michael Bendis closes a storyline that basically started all the way back with Avengers: Disassembled. Now we get to see what he does next.
Since this is the end of the story, in classic comic book fashion, we get a big throw down of a fight, this time it’s between the Sentry’s evil side, and the assembled Avengers, Young Avengers, and Nick Fury’s young heroes. There are a couple of not really surprising deaths in this issue and each one is handled pretty well.
Siege #3 Writer: Brian Michael Bendis

Released March 17, 2010
The march towards Marvel‘s Heroic Age continues, and with this issue of Siege we finally get the moment that many fans”¦okay, even that is saying too much. There are so many awesome moments in this book that you can’t turn a page without a surprise, and I don’t want to be the one to ruin those moments for anyone.
I will just say that Brian Michael Bendis pulls out all the stops, and fills the issue with a lot of great dialog. As I said with the last issue, the shorter story length is working very well for this series, forcing Bendis to cut to the chase and focus on the big moments. A problem I had with Bendis’ last two event minis, House of M and Secret Invasion, was that they dragged in the middle. This series does not have that issue, and is much better because of it.
